You’d like to duet with…

Regina Spektor, Sigrid, or the Boss.

 

Who’s your guilty pleasure?

I don’t like this phrase! as you shouldn’t feel guilty for liking anything you might like (unless it’s Nazi punk or something). I’m not guilty for any music I enjoy. But I can happily say 2 acts that kickstarted my desire to become a performer, were Robbie Williams and McFly.

All of them. I’m on all of them! Instagram is my favourite though.

Parks & Recreation, Trailer Park Boys, Sons of Anarchy, or a million other things I could list!

 

Coffee House Tour … what are you most excited about?

I’m excited to meet a lot of new friends and play my songs to them. There are also a couple of places on the tour I’m yet to play, so it’ll be nice to visit new towns.
