To anyone new to your music, name 3 words that best describe your sound.
Goofy, indie, poetic
What made you decide that music is the right path for you?
Just evident. I come up with tunes all the time – even in my dreams! I once hummed a melody to myself for two weeks on a trip in India because I didn’t want to forget it and had nothing to record it! (it was in 2000).
Who are your main musical influences and why?
Depeche Mode, I was a huge fan in my teens and they still mean a lot to me After that I navigated between Britpop like the La’s, Stone Roses and American alternative bands like the Pixies I also listened a lot to like funk and ska and soul, like Funkadelic or Desmond Dekker Nowadays I like mellow, grown-up bands like The National for example And I love great female voices like Adele or Lana Del Rey.
What’s in store for you for the rest of the year?
Releasing my album on 1 st October, then releasing more songs including a collaboration with my neighbour Paddy Milner who plays with Tom Jones and kindly created an amazing piano part for my song ‘Oh my Lady!’ And hopefully finding people to accompany on stage – if you’re a musician and like my music please get in touch if you read this!
Tell MoggBlog viewers about your latest release! What’s the inspiration behind that?
Ha, well it’s unreleased material that I finally decided to get mixed and mastered professionally. They’re songs I wrote in Paris between 2000 and 2010 so they mean a lot to me as they reflect my life back then and all the friends and fun and also what I was listening to.
