Leigh Fitzjames is the real name of artist Twinkles. She was born in Australia but recently moved to New York. There she started both a musical career and an acting career. She describes herself as “Raceless, ageless, genre bending looks and sounds”. That’s also the way we would like to call her debut-single that came out two days ago. “In My Dreams” starts with a chill piano but what follows are a lot of deep beats. The song is about her past and leaving things she loves. However her future looks bright as she’s planning to release a debut EP in 2016. You can compare Twinkles with Janelle Monáe and Lion Babe. Our guess is that Twinkles will be the newest deep and dark R&B pop sensation in the future.
We asked Twinkles some questions, and she was kind but very short in her answers. However it looks like she had fun and we are very happy with her answers!
