"My first musical memory, was when I was 2 years old, my mum plonked me in front of the tv and ‘Nothing Compares’ (the Sinead O’Connor version) came on and I just thought ‘wow, she is an angel’… in that moment I fell in love with music."
"My pre-show ritual is not very ‘rock and roll’. I clear the room, do my warm up, smell some essential oils… Maybe even have a cup of tea! It’s so boring!"
"I love literature and I really love poetry. T.S. Eliot is one of my all-time favourites and I have a verse from ‘The Hollow Men’ tattooed on my arm."
"I tend to think my life hasn’t really changed through being a musician, I feel very chilled about it and my parents would never let any success go to my head. Also, spending time with my dogs always keeps me grounded. They don’t care about who you are, or how cool you are, or any of those things!"
