Independent, ambitious and tenacious to the point of obstinacy, Constance Power is the first to admit she’s a typical Capricorn. “We’re extremely stubborn,” the Watford-raised singer-songwriter chuckles today, nursing the can of Red Bull she’s smuggled into an artisan, East London brunch spot. “We’re quite grounded as a star sign as well, but we have to decide by ourselves that we’re wrong.”
Good or bad, all these traits have proven essential in bringing the 25-year-old to this point in her career. One year on from her debut album, English Rose, and a further four since her first EP, Connie has set up her own record label and cemented a tight-knit, creative support
network. In doing so, she’s finally carved the space to be authentically herself. Self-motivated from an early age, Connie recalls always being determined to pursue a career in the arts. That determination initially led her to study dance – first at a local ballet school and then on to Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance’s CAT scheme, before winning a place at North London’s prestigious Urdang Academy – until her long-held passion for music took precedence.
