- Have you always been musical?
Most definitely – since I was young I have been around music and enjoyed singing.
- What/who are your musical influences?
I grew up listening to what my parents played, so I love older bands such as the Beatles, ABBA and the Eagles. I really get drawn to great songs, so it doesn’t matter who plays them.
I love it when a popular song is broken down and played acoustically, or with a change of progression in the chords. I’m not dedicated to one genre of music -I really do love them all.
- What/who are you listening to right now?
Currently I am loving Tenille Towns (USA), Tori Forsyth (AUS) and my son Nami his single is called ‘Whereever U Are’
- Favourite line from a song?
Oh what a tricky question! There are so many and I’m not sure I can pick just one.
The first one that pops into my head would have to be from ‘Flame Tree’s ‘ by ‘Cold Chisel’ ‘Kids are driving, Saturday afternoon just passed me by; I’m just savouring familiar sights’
What a great start to a song! You immediately get an image in your head and for me, just memories of great times.
- Do you still practise regularly?
I feel like every time I play whether at home, or at a gig/event, it’s practice! And yes, I do this alot!
- Which instruments do you play?
My main instrument is guitar. I can also play ukulele, trumpet and french horn. I’m an less than average drummer which I do enjoy, but I’m terrible at! I’m a whizz at recorder
- Are there any others you’d like to learn?
Definitely would love to learn piano!
- What gig past, future or present would you like to have been to/go to?
Oh I would have loved to have been at the Live Aid Concert in 1985! Right up the front – It would have been an incredible experience.
- If you could play any gig or venue, where would you play?
I would love to play at the Golden Guitars in Tamworth one day. I think that would be right up the top of my bucketlist.
