1.How did you get into music?

It got into me

2.What were your major influences?

I grew up with all kinds of music around me; everything
from Beastie Boys to Marvin Gaye…and I’m secretly in love
with Tom Waits.

3.If you could have a three band bill who would they
be?

Joan Armatrading, Tom Waits and Annie Lennox

4. What music do you class yourself as?

Bluesy Pop

5. Where do you think you will be in 10 years?

With any luck, I’ll in a sequined jump suit, passed out in
a pile of my own vomit surrounded by babes… wait, that
was someone else’s dream. I don’t know, but there will be
music involved.

6. What has been your best gig you have played so
far?

The last show I did in a music room with a grand piano, was
sold out all through word of mouth ticket sales, so that
made me pretty happy to have a solid turn out with no
advertising.

7. What made you want to go out and play
music?

Insomnia

8. What are your thoughts on file sharing and the mp3
format?

I could get into this one for a while, but I’ll try to sum
up: I think it’s a great form of advertising for bands – it
can do a lot to get their music heard and create awareness
for the group… but it’s a business and we still need to
make a living off the product, so it needs to be integrated
with the concept of purchased downloads. There are lots of
songs that people would download, but never go out and buy
(baby got back, wanted dead or alive…) but when it comes
to emerging artists, I would just ask people to keep in
mind that if you like what you hear and want more if it,
someone has to pay to make it happen.

9. Who would you most like to record a song
with?

Joan Armatrading

10. Do you think the internet is good for helping
artists get known?

It’s been good to me

11. What bands/artists are you listening to
lately?

Recent purchases include: The Donnas, Blossom Dearie,
Modest Mouse and Metric

12. Who has helped you out the most?

So many people. My family is ridiculously supportive and I
have tons of awesome volunteers for everything from website
development to ticket sales.

13. If you could be on the simpsons where would you be
playing?

Springfield?

14. What has the response been like for your
album?

I really just created this CD as a demo, but was able to
sell some copies to support my various habits. And it’s
kept me in black liquorices for the last year, so I guess
I’m happy. The CD has opened other doors to make more
music, so that’s the most I could ask for.

Thanks to Jessica Beach For kindly doing the interview.
