Leaving a full-time job is not something that many young people in Ireland would consider doing right now. But Dublin-based singer-songwriter Vicky Sergeant chose to do exactly that, in order to pursue music full-time.
“I’ve always been singing and playing music,” reflects Sergeant, “but it was only recently that I began to take it seriously and focus on making my dream a reality.”
Having graduated from UCD and experienced uncertainty about what direction to take professionally, Sergeant eventually opted for a job in digital marketing. However, as she continued to work with vocal coach Timara Galassi – who has been training Sergeant since college – the singer realised where her true ambitions really lay.
“It came to a point where I really felt that I needed to give music my full focus,” notes Sergeant. “So that’s what I did. It was a brave move. but probably the best one I’ve ever made. For me, it’s really important that I do something I’m passionate about.”
