* So Saintsaviour what are you up to at this very moment?
I’m on the bus to Hackney to return some fashion pieces I borrowed from Rachel Freire for a music video, then straight to a Groove Armada rehearsal in an ex biscuit factory.
*You’re touring in October, what can the audience expect?
Well, I’m fronting GA so it’ll be more of the same, total balls-out conviction and out of this world costumes, to some serious banging tunes. My solo show at Bush Hall on the 23rd October will be the start of me as a totally independent solo artist and the show will be a lot more feminine but just as powerful and engaging.
*What is your favourite song to perform live?
With GA – ‘Paper Romance’ and with my solo show – ‘Woman Scorned’
*Who has released a stand out album this year?
*Which song do you wish you had written?
Spanish Sahara, of course! Or if you mean any song from history, ‘Bird on the Wire’ by Leonard Cohen.
*Any surprises in the pipeline for your UK performances?
I’m taller than you may imagine, and I’ve got a well silly accent.
*If you were to send someone to prison for crimes against music, who would it be?
Its difficult this one, because I think everyone has a place, but there was one song that once nearly gave me a stroke in the gym and the chorus went ‘ we went to the bar, for a sambu-car, I gave you my num-bar, and I took your num-bar’. Honestly….didn’t get his name but that guy! Proper ‘Kill Your Friends’ material.
*Whats your favourite animal and why?
The ‘yoga bear’ who featured in the Metro a couple of mornings ago, because I love her sense of peace and focus.
*If you were a superhero, what would be your super power?
I’d have the power to make everyone get out of my bloody way when I’m trying to shop.
*What were you doing last night at 11?
Sleeping, it was a school night.
*Plans for the rest of the year?
I want some label support so I can release my album and do a tour.
Don’t miss out seeing her live on 23rd October and you can also catch her with Groove Armada on tour from next week starting in Leeds.
