when did you first start singing?
I started singing from a young age purely for my own entertainment at around the age of 10 but got really interested in singing for others when I was 22 and met Simon and Chris through friends. I thought their music was really interesting and they inspired me to give it a go.
can you share with us something about the process of recording vocals for the stormset songs on the just like fashion e.p?
The process of recording was really relaxing and fun. I was pregnant at the time and loved that my baby could hear the music we were making, and it gave me a happy feeling every time we rehearsed or were recording.
who are some of your favourite musical influences?
My favourite vocalists and musical influences are many and varied. I love so many types of music but I would have to say Katie Noonan (the lead singer from the band George), Dido, Sia, Sarah Blasko, Tracey Chapman, Nelly Furtado, Missy Higgins, Everything But The Girl and Lamb. These are all some of my favourite vocalists and influences.
what inspires you?
My inspiration is the wonder of nature, beautiful music, firends, and food. But at the moment my biggest inspiration is my little boy, Mitchel, and how he interacts with the world and learns everyday.
