I've always been singing.... started having lessons aged 11, started classical training at 13.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
the first concert I ever went to.... I was 7 I went with my aunt to proms in the park and it was fantastic. I sort of grew up with classical music. I was completely unaware that the music I had listened to my whole life aged 7 was classical. I thought that music was simply music... I only discovered pop and rock when my radio went to auto save and search channels and found capital FM..... I just remember thinking... "what's THIS?!
What gear do you use?
I have a Alto PA system, a yamaha mixer... currently using Shure microphones....
as far as instruments are concerned I have a few keyboards. I have a Yamaha DGX 630 digital piano. A Korg PS60 lives in the house but belongs to my brother... I also have a Tyros 1 workstation.... which is great fun.
Guitars.... in the house resides a fender strat (my brother's) a les paul copy (dad's) and there's a fender bullet... which is mum's its actually an instrument I have only seen twice... I have never played it.... there's two bass guitars. A westone Fretless bass and a Warwick fretted bass... in blackened tan... jealous...? ;)
There's a drum kit.... (my brother's) and apart from a few random instruments that are just bits and bobs we found at car boots and junk shops...thats it... =)
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
I don't have a biggest influence strangely... =/ that's odd...
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
I was in a band.... now I'm not... haha... ;)
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
performed at Llangollen international Eisteddfod... that was pretty huge... recently performed with the BBC national welsh choir in the millenium centre... I don't know how many seats there are in the main concert hall but it was completely packed out.. the smallest audience I have performed in front of was 2... it wasn't a very well advertised gig to be honest.
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
a good question...but as I am stuck on a dessert Island I will have no cd player... ;)
I'd take either a laptop with spotify or an ipod.... ;)
