Interview: Rebecca Ferguson
The X Factor runner-up who went on to co-write her record-breaking debut and another three albums, tells her songwriting story

Working class Liverpudlian girl Rebecca Ferguson came to prominence in 2010 when she became the runner-up of the seventh series of The X Factor. She lost out to the eventual winner that year, Matt Cardle, but ultimately went on to greater success as a recording artist. Rebecca’s debut album, Heaven, was a critical and commercial success selling 128,000 copies in its first week and peaked at No 3 in the UK Official Charts, making her the fastest-selling debut solo artist of the decade (2007-2017).

Rebecca went on to release a successful sophomore effort, Freedom, followed by her third studio album Lady Sings The Blues covering a number of jazz classics made famous by Billie Holiday.

Now a mature 30-year-old soul singer, the once shy and insecure artist released her fourth album Superwoman last year and is continuing to flourish as a confident songwriter. What a perfect time to reflect on Rebecca’s incredible story so far…
