what’s your message?

Fall in love with life, don't forget about the forest, horoscopes are true

do you play shows and how do they look like?

I dance a lot, sing a lot.  It's best if either the crowd is really good and into dancing, or if the sound is good and the show itself is very clear. 

what was the craziest show you’ve ever played ?

One time I got so drunk I don't remember playing but everyone tells me it was my best show ever.  I vaguely recall yelling at the audience through tons of delay…

what was the worst and why?

I played a show on New Years eve in Vancouver and the monitors cut out right at the beginning but there were so many people in the room I had noooo fucking clue what was going on and i saw a video of it and it sounded like shit and I looked stressed as hell.  and i was. 

what are your future plans?

Be an international pop star, go to Japan, visit stonehenge, visit the vatican library.  Eventually move to the west coast and get a degree

are you going for the big deal or are you more the d.i.y. type?

Big Deal!!!
