Fave gig - Else H.
Q.Out of all the gigs of the Europe tour, which one was your favorite?
A. Oooh that's hard to say. There were so many goodies. Munich was really fun.... so was Groningen...and Portugal...well ... they are all different/ Switzerland was fun too. It's really all about the audience, but each country is different and has different ways of showing love to the music.
Lyrics - Ben
Q. How important are lyrics to you? Are they the like the soul of every song, or are they more like a tool to “transport” your voice and the melody?
A. ooh i like this question. Lyrics are incredibly important to me, I think it helps to understand the feeling that the writer has intended to cross over. Lyrics are poetry, another form of art . Jill Scott made a book of poetry that I loved—you should check it out.
I work with some musicians that just hear sounds and chords and miss the lyrics entirely. It's about what grabs you personally. Sometimes a melody can suggest a completely different feeling than a lyric would, unless were writing in riddles, the lyrics are pretty much spelling it out for us. Sometimes i'll go back to a song that I have loved in the past and realise I have never actually concentrated on the words to this song—and when you do, it's like you are hearing it for the first time all over again. So there is something to be said for missing a lyric or two for a while. It gives you the opportunity to have that honeymoon feeling again with the song.
Idol - Ana C.
Q. Who is your idol?
A. Don't have one. I think to idolise someone is slightly unhealthy, but to be inspired by someone can be positive in lots of ways. I am inspired by Aretha Franklin for her vocal ability, she is just simply the best singer I have ever heard. I am also inspired by Lauryn Hill for lots of reasons, but the first thing that comes to mind is that she is not afraid to speak her mind. Weather the world deems her 'crazy' or not, she will not water-down her opinions...and I have to say I respect that, and am inspired by it.
Best Friend - Jamieth T.
Q. Do you have a best friend?
A. I do have a few "best friends" you could say. Certain people I know will be there for me regardless of my situation and I for them also, that is true friendship, those who will be with you through thick, through thin.
