Despite a successful career as an influencer, Roberts is now working on using it to showcase her talent as a musician. So let’s delve into the details of Abby’s success and transformation from TikTok influencer/makeup artist to musician.
Journey To TikTok Fame
Hailing from Leeds, Abby Roberts wanted to kick-start her career early at the age of nine. She shaved her head, recorded a La Roux cover, and posted it on Facebook. She expected good reviews, but her schoolmates made fun of her, and it was a complete failure. After a terrible first experience, Roberts decided to keep her singing passion locked up for a while.
Two years later, at 11, Abby started lip-syncing music and making beauty tutorials. She began on Youtube and Instagram before finally heading to TikTok at the start of 2019. Within the first few months of being on the app, Roberts gained millions of followers.
Transition From Influencer To Singer
After doing makeup for nine years, Abby wanted people to see a different side of her. She also felt burnt out with make-up and couldn’t think of any more crazy looks to do. When the lockdown happened, Roberts started to learn guitar through online lessons before meeting a tutor.
Abby instantly fell in love with music and felt like she found the creative challenge that had been lacking for so long. Eventually, she started writing her own songs. One thing led to another, and a friend of Abby’s who knew a producer reached out to her.
Though at first, Abby was shy, she decided to go for it and sang in the studio for the first time leading to her pursuing a musical career. After two long years, Abby’s first debut single, Paramaniac, came out on January 13, 2022. Roberts is a big fan of Lana Del Rey and Arctic Monkey. Also, learn about singer/songwriter Caroline Polachek, whose biggest inspiration is musician Enya.
Abby’s Debut EP
Apart from her TikTok massive success, the online Sensation Abby Roberts intended to make her name in the music industry. Like many other influencers, Roberts also wanted to try her hands at creating a name for herself as a musician. With that intention, Roberts released her debut EP Ashes on June 10, 2022, alongside a new single, Video Girl.
The EP consists of seven tracks and is released under Melomaniac Records & Locomotion Special Projects. It’s the coming-of-age soundtrack. The rising star co-directed the music video for Video Girl, which was described as a powerful critique of social media’s dark side by Rolling Stone UK.
Opening For Halsey
Abby started her music career during Lockdown and has come quite far. Her music was received well by the listeners and was getting quite a recognition in the music industry as well. Upon the announcement of Halsey‘s Love and Power Tour, Roberts landed an opening slot as one of the four openers.
For a musician who is just getting started and also without prior musical experience, the opportunity to open for Halsey in the second half of the tour was major. The rising star herself described the experience to be insane and was anxious to the point that she threw up. However, upon Abby’s arrival on the stage, everything went quite naturally.
Many were reluctant towards Robert’s music, but their theory was debunked after they heard Abby’s EP. The TikTok star-turned-musician is bulldozing her way into the music industry and is sure to become a household name in the coming years.Articles, Celebrity Babies, Celebrity Feuds, Celebrity Siblings, Entertainment, Richest Celebrities, Keep In Touch With eCelebritymirror.
