Behind The Bops with Gabriella Cilmi

She talks through her A+ discography

?️ STAND ASIDE ‘CAUSE I’M ON A MISSION! ?️

And that mission is to tell you that Gabriella Cilmi is the latest amazing Behind The Bops guest!

For the fourth episode of the podcast, I asked her all about her amazing discography so far – from the Xenomania-produced, Sweet About Me-packing debut Lessons To Be Learned to wonderful new EP The Water; via her incredible electropop opus Ten and independent gem The Sting.

Along the way, she’s played the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury, worked with top-tier hitmakers like The Invisible Men and Ellie Goulding… and seen people campaign for On A Mission to be a lipsync on RuPaul’s Drag Race.

You can listen to the chat on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and Podbean now.

As with the previous episodes, I donated £50 to a cause of her choice as a thank-you – and she picked Action Against Hunger’s Yemen fund. You can support that incredibly urgent cause too by heading here.

I’ve also – lucky for you!! – made a 15-track Essential Gabriella Cilmi playlist on Spotify, which you can bask in here.

Gabriella’s new EP The Water is out now.

Behind The Bops with Jade Ewen

On Eurovision, Sugababes and more

I was super excited to speak to Jade Ewen about being at the intersection of so many of my interests: Eurovision! Sugababes! The West End! The evergreen fucking banger ‘My Man’!

She was so open and lovely; a real pleasure. I absolutely loved hearing her perspective on the 2009 Eurovision year, her experience of joining one of the biggest pop groups of the century (and their eventual split), and loads more.

Misfit! Just A Little Girl! Under the Thumb! Nice Boys!

Amy Studt was a big fave for many of us in the early 2000s, and she’s on Electric Angels’ little podcast Behind The Bops to talk about her teen breakthrough, working with songwriting giants (Cathy Dennis! Gary Barlow! Sheryl Crow!), her almost mythical second album, and her recent return to music. The chat was aired on our Breakfast Bops show on Tuesday, 5 May.
