We spoke to September about her success and love for music:
All of your songs are so catchy, how do you create this beat?

September: It is just my team, we do catchy songs, that is the main thing that we do. I don't know how we can develop such catchy songs, but we do.

Tell me a little bit about Can't Get Over?

September: It has just been released everywhere now. It has just been released in England, Australia and America. It is about a break-up, a lot of my songs are often like that.

You always look great, what is your fashion secret?

September: I always do my own fashion, myself. I am designing my own clothes. I design the clothes that I wear and my dances too. That is one thing why I have really different clothes, I also work with a really good stylist, a talented one. I want to have thing that are really different. I like unique, cool and catchy fashion. I create it.

How does it feel to hear your music on radio?

September: Today, it feels very good, of course. There are a lot of (music) lists out there, so it is hard to separate the lists, to know what to be happy for and what to be really happy for; you know? Which is bigger. I get a lot of my information, for me, everything is about the crowd. I see how big I am with a concert, and when I see the reactions of an audience. That is how I see how things are going. Concerts are the main thing.

What music/artists do you listen to when you are not playing your own?

September: I like lots of music. I like Lilly Allen, I just bought her album, it's really good. I like Austin and Kanye West, he made a lot of good songs.

Do you prefer performing live or recording?

September: I love to perform live. It is a matter of how big production is. I would love to have a band all the time, but it is tricky to travel around with a band. Most of the time I am going with dancers and my DJ. But it is also a compilation that I love.

What has been your favorite part of becoming a music artist?

September: My favourite. Is to do big stuff. I have been working hard to a lot of years. Today I am glad that I can do big concerts and do big cool stuff that I really enjoy. I enjoy performing in front of crowds. Before I had to do a lot of things, like work very very much. I can now work and do a few things that are the best, like performing.

When are you coming to perform in Australia?

September: I think I will come back to Australia soon, not yet. But when I can. We haven't organised dates yet, but I will. I have all the information on my Myspace Page. That is were I update all of my dates where I will be performing. It isn't organised yet, but I will be coming to Australia.
