Some of you will have hopefully read our recent review of Orange Circle by NY based singer Alex Kelly. Her track made us really sit up and take notice. Its great when new music does that to you.
Well Alex Kelly agreed to take time out from her manic schedule in the US, to give us an exclusive interview. We talk about idols, how to make it in music and sacrifices. She isn’t a fan of the muppets though.
Who are the biggest influences on your music?
Prince, No Doubt and The Doors
Who were your musical idols?
For me it’s always been Michael Jackson. The day I heard of his death on the news, I opened the huge bay windows of my apartment and screamed. I totally freaked out! I took my Schwinn cruiser for a long ride that day. I had my ghetto-blaster in the front basket, and for hours rode around town with MJ at full volume. People on the streets pulled me over so they could dance to the music and cry too. I finally got home at midnight, makeup completely smeared, hair blown all over my head…but I didn’t care. I loved Michael Jackson…
