Gowri (Nickname: Dr G.) - Alto
If you could have any super power, what would it be?
I would like to be able to go to anywhere in the world at the snap of my fingers.
Aside from Soulstice, what do you do with your life?
Finishing off the last semester of Arts/Law, working part time at a law firm, and nerding out in Soulstice.
What are your major influences/sources of inspiration?
Family has definitely been a huge influence, and inspiration – in that they are generally an interesting and supportive bunch of people. In terms of music specifically, arranging music for the group has definitely been a fun challenge - and has given me new appreciation for the artists who wrote the songs in the first place. It’s tough to be original!
What is your musical background and how long have you been singing?
I’ve been involved with music since before I could reach the piano keys, but have no formal experience or knowledge. Apart from school choirs, singing has mostly just been at home when no one is around, or, more embarrassingly, in the car (except at traffic lights, because that’s when people in other cars start pointing and laughing).
What music do you listen to?
Tough one – there is no category of music I won’t listen to, but I predominantly listen to indie folk/ indie rock and jazz. I find film scores and musical numbers particularly good study music too (and by study I mean procrastination).
What is your guilty pleasure?
I just told you – singing in the car. Okay, dancing in the car. OKAY IT’S GEORDIE SHORE THERE I SAID IT.
Team Edward or Team Jacob?
I’m team Draco Malfoy.
Which would you rather wear for a month: bright green crocs or a “<3 Justin Bieber 4 Glee” badge on your chest?
I don’t understand this question. Should bright green crocs be worn for only a month??
