+What was your introduction to music, or what music did you listen to growing up?
+ Your performance style is very unique, as it seems to incorporate theatrics into the music. This is reminiscent of the performance styles of artists like David Bowie and Peter Gabriel. Where did you come up with this approach to performing your music, as opposed to having a full band onstage with you?
+ Have you ever played in a full band and if so, how does it compare to performing solo?
I’ve never played in a full band so I don’t have anything to compare creating or performing alone to, really. I think the control issues in me mixed in with anxiety has always made the prospect of committing to being a creative with other people a little scary. Like, a few months back I asked my friend Daniel (of French Vanilla) to put saxophone on a track I was working on and the whole time we were in the studio, my anxieties of being too controlling/demanding about what I wanted were coming out really hard and that actually made it more difficult for me to verbalize what I wanted to hear. I ended up obsessively asking to redo takes over and over again even though the initial recording he did was perfect.
+Who are your major influences?
+ When did you start writing your own music?
+ How did you get the opportunity to perform at Play Like a Girl?
Play Like A Girl is a great way for people to discover more acts that are fronted by women, as the music industry is still dominated by men. Have you faced any challenges as a woman in music and, if so, how did you overcome them? Do you have any advice for women who may be struggling in the industry?
+ Talk about the lyrical content of your songs. What topics or ideas do you like writing about?
+ What goes into the writing and recording process when you record your albums? Does music come first or lyrics? What software or technology do you use when recording?
+ Do you compose your own music and, if so, what instruments do you play?
+ The visuals that you project behind you in your live performances are intriguing. Do you make them yourself? Is there a way to find them somewhere (YouTube, DVD, etc.)?
+ What are your future plans at the moment? Do you have any live shows coming up or plans to record another album?
