I would just go back to a time I could see Jeff Buckley play at Sin E, not to show our music but just to see him live, what a man!What are your top 5 favourite albums?
Radiohead - all of them! Jeff Buckley's 'Grace' Local Natives 'Gorilla Manor'What is your most memorable gig (playing or watching)?
Bon Iver last year at the myer music bowl - mind boggingly awesome! I didn't look at my watch onceWhere do you usually draw inspiration from as a writer? Do you have a process? eg music first, lyrics first etc
finding out how other songwriters write fascinates me, I definitely have my own methods which draws from imagery, words, music or something inspiring but I like to try out new ways - Imogen Heap's collaboration with her fans is definitely something that caught my attention, what a great way to find inspiration and involve others
