Talented up-and-coming Spalding singer-songwriter on a mission to release her first album

By Spalding Reporter

Spalding resident and pop singer Rose Pocock, also known as Joettah, has released two singles online, with more to come soon.

Her tracks 'Deceived' and 'Missing You' are available to listen on YouTube right now. (Search for 'Joettah').

She hopes to create an album in the near future, as she has a number of other songs already written and is creating more all the time.

Originally from Western Africa, Joettah began writing her own songs in 2011 about her experiences and things that happen in everyday life.

She said: "We humans are all different in many ways; we all have different talents and skills. For example, we have doctors, scientists, archaeologists, investors, writers like me, and many more.

"Some people get to know themselves and discover who they are as time goes by. Some people get to discover what they're good at earlier in life, some later on, and some people very late in their life.

"That's what happened to me. I discovered that I can write lyrics and also sing. That's one of the reasons I want to make my own music. I believe that because of what I've experienced in life, I was gifted to tell my story through songs."

Sometimes her songs originate as recordings on her mobile phone. She might get the idea for a new song while doing things around the house such as washing up and have to quickly record her ideas so she doesn't forget them.

Joettah hopes to promote her music more in the future and have a musical career, being recognised as far and wide as possible.

She will be performing at Bailgate Busking Festival in Lincoln's Cathedral Quarter on Saturday July 6. This is an annual free to attend event that promotes local talent with a festival of acoustic music.
