What was the biggest fun during the making of the last album?
The whole thing was such a fun experience, it’s hard to pick one particular moment. But I recorded the album in California with my friend Linus Of Hollywood. I think that’s my favorite thing about the making of the album.
If we want to know you, which song do we have to listen to? And why?
I would have to say Freak Flag. It’s got a cool mix of pop, singer songwriter, and rock n roll. Plus, the subject matter is very close to my heart. We should all be free to enjoy being ourselves. Even if we are weird, or “nerds” etc… Unfortunately, we live in a society dominated by the internet… and bullies can hide behind computer screens.
I don’t mention REO Speedwagon as one of my favorite bands on a daily basis? What about you? Actually I like them a lot. What about the cover?
They seem to be one of those bands that people never take too seriously. But they have so many great songs! I think “Take It On The Run” is one of the all time great love songs. I had wanted to cover it for a long time… and this solo album gave me the opportunity. I really like the chilled out, darker direction we took it.
The music industry has changed a lot (or so they say). What did it bring you? And what not?
So, what did the changes in the music industry bring me? It brought me my freedom. Things like Kickstarter and/or PledgeMusic give artists like me the opportunity to break out on my own and leave those greedy assholes behind. I LOVE IT!
She tells you she will decide on a 5-song-mix tape if there is going to be a second date. Which 5 would you put on?
If she doesn’t go or it after THAT, she wasn’t worth dating anyway. Haha!
What’s up for the next couple of months?
Going on tour in the UK, supporting Ginger Wildheart. Then off to Scotland to record a new album!
