What are your major influences/sources of inspiration?
Johnny Cash. "Songwriter, historian, fighter of causes; friend to the deprived and troubled, friend of great men; a leader in the temporal world, and a follower in the spiritual world, Johnny Cash is the total entertainer. An internationally famous performer, he carries his love for his country and for country music around the world. The man in black retains his roots in the soil as he grows in conscience and integrity. He is one of the world's most beloved and honored stars". Plus he was just a total romantic. What a dude.
What is your musical background and how long have you been singing?
I've had classical voice training on and off since I was 7, forever the choir geek, and found my love of jazz singing as I got older. I played both piano and double bass for a few years but my skills now max out at "Hot Cross Buns". I stopped singing lessons once I started uni and turned my sights to professional shower singing, and providing a soundtrack to my patient housemates as they do the dishes.
What music do you listen to?
Ohhhh I'm going to be annoying and say a bit of everything. I like music that really makes me feeeeel something. So this encompasses stuff from Fleetwood Mac and The Who to cheesy country, pop and R&B music, Australian hip hop, and every musical theater production ever written. I have a lot of feelings, k.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Spending hours on YouTube watching public, choreographed wedding proposals. Hi boyfriend, if you're reading this.
Team Edward or Team Jacob?
There's only one vampire for me. Team Eric forever.
Which would you rather wear for a month: bright green crocs or a “<3 Justin Bieber 4 Glee” badge on your chest?
