met the folk and blues legend Odetta in her hometown Milano. It was her idol who told her to improve her guitar playing and move to London. She acted on Odetta’s advice and is now ready to touch-and-go in the British singersongwriter scene – on the heels of Linda Thompson, Nick Drake and Sandy Denny.
«Minor White » is out now.
I generally sing funny songs along with my friends.
Normally that is the time when I listen to what’s been happening in the studio. Just to gather ideas.
I don’t relax on beaches, sorry!
Again the Eagles... Don't know why I'm choosing them again! No Idea! I just own a «The Best Of» album by them.
Running naked through a corn field? Me?! You crazy?
I LOVE the sound of this album, it always takes me to a different level of consciousness. I think it’s the combination of the lyrics, the melodies and the actual sound of the record. I never really tried to analyse why I like it so much...
Anything by The Rolling Stones.
Ah! Then I sing myself. Normally anything by Carlos Spinetta.
I can't drive. I’m too easily distracted. But if I could, it would be «Take It Easy».
Fishing gets on my nerves!
I don’t jog.
His poetry is amazingly sharp, clear. It just reminds me of my Folk studio days and possibly the person I was back then.
The only song I hear in my head when I meet my parents is: «Can you please stop telling me what to do? I’m a grown up now!»
I don’t know really. I generally watch silly movies.
That would be any 60’s psychedelic extravaganza that my boyfriend would play.
It reminds me of when I used to spend time in New York.
I only listen to Radio 4 when I wake up. So it's just a general trying to start the day with a confused ear to the speaker. BUT... If I were a Radio DJ I would open the morning show with «Beautiful People».
Off the album «Song To A Seagull».
Then it’s radio time again.
No songs in particular, actually.
The first Seasick Steve gig at 12 bar club in London.
Any Waltz by Johann Strauss.
It's such a happy and sad song at the same time. It makes me cry everytime I hear it.
Oh, far too many! I can’t even begin to think.
Same as above I guess. I’ve been playing that song over and over for years.
