Rudie Edwards


  1. 1.
Rudie Edwards has fond memories of the place she called home as a child. Dover, in the south of England: the musician and songwriter can picture the quaint town in her mind; those high school years of first loves and friendships.
But she also recalls the time she spent as a teenager looking out to sea, past the beaches and cliffs towards France, pondering what lay beyond it. “I wanted to go out and see the world,” she says.
The first single from it “Young” is, at its heart, about Dover, and those first fleeting loves that leave a profound effect upon who we are as people. In it, the comforting mundanity of the first boy she loved – one she learned to love The Smiths for, and subsequently left behind as she moved to London – is juxtaposed with her own journey. “While you’re watching TV, I’m boarding another plane… always chasing something new.” Most of us breathe a sigh of relief at the idea of leaving the places we grew up in. But Rudie Edwards can still find the warmth in them. “It's my little thank you to him,” she says, of that first love. “My little thank you for the things I miss from back then.”
