Singer Tems revealed a -not-so-popular layer of her talent on Thursday, July 7. In a Twitter post, the 26-year-old shared pictures of an improvised studio setup where she recorded and produced her first EP For Broken Ears.
‘For Broken Ears’ is Tems first project. It released in 2020 and included hit singles Damages and Free Mind.
According to Tems, she didn’t stop producing, and contributed to the fine production work on her second EP If Orange Was A Place alongside UK-based producer Guilty Beatz. She also added that she’s a 100x better at production than she was when she produced For Broken Ears.
Tems broke out as an independent artist. It was her freestyles and covers of popular songs that earned her her first record deal. So, one way or the other, she was always bound to have been a producer at some point, and improvising to do it goes to show how deep her talent and determination runs.
