Featured Artist interview: Danusia Soul (E70)

About: Danusia Soul from London

"Hi, I'm Danusia, the first and probably last half Kurdish - half Polish soul singer you will ever meet! I am serious about singing and take a lot of inspiration from the jazz, soul, and swing greats - which means I will keep working on improving my voice the natural way and I 'aint NEVER GOING NEAR NO VOCODER!
I sing at events, gigs, and am a licensed busker on the London Underground. I have been writing songs for a couple of years now - and whilst I think they can only really be explained by listening to them, this is what you get when a London gal sings the blues!"

1).What do you think will happen to music in 50 years?
I think the industry will find a way of owning downloading and we will share more and more music for free. I hope we can return to live shows and gigs, get away from the autotune sound and go back to basics.

2).What are the main difficulties for being a musician in your country?
The difficult think about being a uk musician is that the industry asks UK artists to mimic the trends of america, instead of allowing uk artists to develop our sound.

3).Would you like your children to become musicians, just like you do? Why yes or why not?
I'd like my children to follow whatever dreams they have. I'd encourage them to chase something though.

4).What is the instrument of your dream? (type/brand/model)
Ooh, I don't play an instrument... so how about one I could play with my mind so the tunes I have in my head could be brought to life.

5).If you could raise one music idol from the dead – who would it be?
I would raise Sammy Davis Jr! I think he is one of the world's greatest entertainers. He could sing a song from the heart, make it his own, dance, play instruments, work with and control an orchestra and audience.
