When I’m up on stage, I don’t think about anything except the song I’m singing. Anyway, the majority of my audience is female, and I can’t think that many of them want to see me a French maid outfit somehow!

I have a repertoire of songs that I’m proud of, that I’ve written for my own band. When I do a cover, something that somebody else has written, I think about it very carefully before I sing that song. I have to really get behind it and understand it and like it. And that’s how I pick roles. I don’t want to play just anything.

Once you really get into a song, other than just listening to it, it forces you to go ‘oh, they did this. I never would have thought of doing that,’ when you deconstruct it. It’s something you really can’t do sometimes when you’re just listening to a song. You have to really get into it.

I think about everything first. I think about the scenario: the story and the characters, what I’m trying to say and I’ll think about that for a couple of days until it’s all locked in and then when I get to an instrument it’ll just fall out. But the song’s kind of all ready there in my head.
