Are you looking forward to appearing at Pushca Undercover? What are your favourite Pushca memories as a clubber or artist? Yes I'm very much looking forward to appearing at Pushca - its going to be fantastic! I never went to any of the old parties due to a lot of touring, but I did go to their amazing relaunch in July with David Morales. I also did a DJ set at the Pushca Halloween private party dressed as Bettie Page! but this will be my first official big singing spectacular at a Pushca party, and I can't wait!
What can people expect from your show? We hear there's a new single? I will be launching my new single, which is a long overdue follow up to 'Touch me' with Tom Novy. It's called 'OCD' and also features Swedish producer Zoo Brazil, whom I am a huge fan of, on production. It's going to be a fabulous show and there'll be a few surprises.
How did you get your start as an artist, and when did you get the desire to go for it? It started from the moment I was born. I just can't help it or stop it, and I guess some people are just born with that drive!
How would you describe your vocal style? Style wise I'd like to leave that to the listeners, but I can say that I like a lot of different music and am a very versatile singer, so I don't like to pigeon-hole myself!
Of all the accolades/accomplishments you’ve achieved over the years – what would you say has been your proudest moment? I would say hearing 'I Just Cant Get Enough' in the national UK Charts was a very special moment in my life and a day I will never forget! (I've got the scars to prove it too)!
Are there any artists/producers in particular that inspire you? And of all the artists that you’ve worked with – is there one that has stood out to you the most? Or a favourite experience? Tom Novy is always a gem to work with, but I don't like to work with people that I don't get on with. In fact, everyone I have worked with has been a pleasure in one way or another.
How do you like to spend your time when you’re not on stage? I like to go out and party like the rest of us, but I also love to work out and hang out with my daughter Sacha who is 17, and catch up with friends! I also love animals and love to walk my dog, and I guess I'm aways going to be a country gal at heart!
What’s next for you? I'll be releasing some new songs and performing some great shows in the new year.
And what track should we be listening to as we heard out the door to Pushca Undercover? Oooh that's a hard one but I would play 'Good Night Moon' Original Mix by MK and Lee Foss, and out on Hot Creations - a perfect closing track!
