Where are you from?

Liverpool - Currently Halsall,  it's no man's land between Southport and Ormskirk.

Who got you into music?

That would be my parents. My dad was lucky enough to watch the Beatles practice weekly before their fame, so he got me into the whole merseybeat and folk scene of the 60's, he'd  sing 'I wanna hold your hand'  to me or whack on 'yellow submarine' when I couldn't sleep or got scared as a kid, He also got me into playing the piano and guitar.  My mum was all about tamale motown and an avid listener of the radio.  She  told me her claim to fame was that she got up on stage as a backing vocalist for Edwin Starr for 'WAR' at his gig, but  we were always singing in the kitchen to anything that came on, from Coolio to My Chemical Romance, she hit me with the singing bug and the fact I wanted to be Adam Ant and Stevie Nicks as well as fight for 'Girl Power',  at the same time.  

What's your all time favourite record?

This is nearly impossible, there's so  many if I had to choose one to take on a desert Island I'd sneak my iPod with me. I would find a way.   Old time's sake, I'm saying  'I brought you my bullets, you brought me your love'- My Chemical Romance. loved it as soon as I heard it and it's a fantastic debut album, it's just unashamedly raw. I wish they made another album like it. It's nothing like it's successors.

If you could be reincarnated as any musician who would it be and why?

It's a toss up between Joan Jett and David Bowie. Joan because of the sheer amount of  crap she didn't give and she went for what she wanted to do head first and succeeded. As for Bowie, the amount of reincarnations that man has had, the incredible life he has had, going from wearing a paisley top to a one legged catsuit. I guess either of them because they were both ahead of their time, they  didn't give up and  because of that they changed the music game completely. Absolute Icons.

What musicians have you got your eye on at the moment?

Clean Cut Kid, She Drew The Gun, Sankofa, Frank Iero & The Celebration, also Bowie, he's tipped for a new album in January so all eyes are on to see if he hits up Glasto.
