How smartly can you answer these 12 teasers?
Where are you now and what are you doing?
I am currently in the gym getting myself in good shape for my holiday coming up.
First record to send a shiver up your spine?
I always wanted to be Hannah Montana when I was younger, so when I heard ‘The Climb’, that was a moment for me.
First gig you attended?
Celine Dion with my mum. I’ve always listened to her growing up and to see her as my first concert was insane.
First gig you played?
A new artists night at Whelan’s. Playing with a band in such a great venue and getting to sing my own songs live was an unforgettable night.
Most memorable gig?
When I went to see Beyoncé’s Formation tour with my cousin. I remember watching her perform and knowing that I wanted to be on stage singing and performing to crowds like that one day.
What has been the most ‘pinch me’ moment of your career so far?
Honestly, the first time I went to SARM Studios in London was a huge moment.
Most embarrassing thing you’ve done either drunk or sober?
I think this is up there with my worst sober moment. I was jumping over a plank of wood with nails on it with my cousins – I don’t know why we thought this was fun or even a good idea – but I landed right on top of it instead of over it, and had to get an ambulance to get the plank of wood out of my foot.
What shite jobs have you had in the past?
Having to wake up at 5am and make muffins for a café. Eating the muffins was a big perk, but serving customers before they’ve had their coffee was not enjoyable.
Last record you bought, borrowed, or blagged?
The last record I bought was Jhené Aiko’s album, Trip.
Who’d be in your dream band line-up?
Myself, Lennon Stella, Cleo Sol and H.E.R.
Sexiest musician on the planet?
What song would you have played at your funeral?
‘Hey Now’ by London Grammar.
