From: New York
Sum up your music in ten words or less:
Fun, fun, think about fun
What’s been your biggest gig to date?
Opening for the B-52s with a band called Amungus. I felt like I had actually accomplished something.
Who has influenced your music?
This list could get way out of control, so lets just say Prince, No Doubt, The Doors.
What do you like about where you’re living now?
What’s not to love? SoHo is it’s own melting pot. I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to live here. I’ve always felt most comfortable in artistic communities.
What’s your occupation and what do you like about it?
I write songs and I sing. It’s hard to pick just one thing I like about it but I guess I would have to say that it feels good to do the thing you feel like you were born to do. Especially with our new album, Orange Circle. I feel like this is what I always imagined, but everyone told me was too crazy to do.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I read… A lot! I’m secretly kind of a nerd. I’m completely fascinated with alchemy, philosophy and physics. For some reason talk of subatomic particles really excites me. What else? I sing little ditties that I make up on the spot and dance around a bunch at random times, too.
Favourite bit of tech and why?
Native Instuments Komplete 7. I used it to produce the music for Orange Circle. They have 8 now, I think, but I’ve yet to realise the full power of 7. It’s so exciting.
What’s the most interesting destination you’ve travelled to?
St Maarten. It was the first time I’d been to an actual rainforest. The people on the island are very beautiful in spirit. I felt total relaxation.
What’s the last album you bought? Thoughts?
In Rainbows by Radiohead. Thom Yorke’s vocal makes me feel light and happy. I really appreciate it when the artist can transport me to another place. Plastic Beach by Gorillaz is the best hula-hoop record. Welcome to the World of the Plastic Beach featuring Snoop Dogg is my song.
