Have you ever overslept/got too late to an important interview/show?
No, I'm painfully punctual, cause I was taught never to be late and it's a hard habit to break.

What kind of movies do you like?
I like movies about real life stories, but I also just love to watch
something purely for entertainment value like Happy Gilmore.

Where do you think the direction of your music is headed?
I've just aquired a 1970's Fender Rhodes which is shaping the sound of my music and inspiring me to write beautiful melodies. I used to write deeper, more intense lyrics but I find now I like to get a bit
lighter and more fun.

Yes, especially when I need to reassure myself that my music is good. When I listen and it moves me, I'm happy.

What is the most important for you, love or career?
Love. However, my partner is my bass player so I'm lucky I don't have to make that choice.

Do you have siblings? If so are they older or younger than you?
Funny you should ask. I have 5 sisters older and younger plus three
brothers. I am no.4

What do you do on your day off?
Go to the beach if possible.

What's the best thing a fan has ever done for you?
Asked to shake my hand.

If a fan invites you to dinner, would you accept?
That depends on the individual. There would need to be some familiarity and trust between us.

What is daily eating and exercise habits?

If you could go back in time for a day, who would you spend it with and what would you do?
Oh my God, that's a hard one. There are sooooo many people I'd spend it with but I'd probably go snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef.

Could you ever be friends with a fan?
Some of my best friends are fans, so I guess the answer is yes.

What are you scared of?
Being ordinary.

What is one of the most coolest places you have been to for a concert that you did? And why?
I once played in a band in Sydney to about 30,000 people on the evening of the Bi-Centennial celebrations, and it was my first experience playing to such a big crowd with such an enormous sound system. It was evening, and someone yeld out could I sing AND THE BAND PLAYED WALTZING MATILDA, so I did and they all held up their cigarette lighters and swayed which was amazing. That's when I knew I had found what I wanted to do.

My partner, my dog and my doona.

I'm in love now so that won't happen.

What do you do with all the money you make?
Great question. The only reason for making loads of money in my books is to be able to share it around - of course making sure you're comfortable first.

No thankfully.
