What is music to you? What does it give you?

An emotional outlet. Creating music takes my thoughts away to another place and the genre I write in is affected by my mood....

What is your music dream?

To be heard and enjoyed by as many people as possible...

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Make creative subjects like music more important in the curriculum. It’s so important and good for mental health. More important than algebra!

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

I used to cry at Without You by Harry Nilsson when I was 3 - the chords connected with me and made me feel sad!!

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

The Beatles, Sheryl Crow, Oasis, Radiohead, Hybrid, Coldplay

What inspires you to make music?

It comes from within mainly, it’s a mood related thing. Or if I hear a really great song on the radio and I think “Ooh I need to try and write something better!”

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

I haven’t gigged for many years sadly. I don’t miss certain aspects of it, like lugging the year - but when the audience were in to it and appreciative then that is the best feeling ever!

What frustrates you most as a musician?

My lack of self confidence and the fact I don’t like my voice!! Will I ever get over that?
