1). What is the most exotic/extraordinary place you have ever performed at?
The most extraordinary place I've ever played was actually just a little hole in the wall pub in Nashville, TN. The band I was with at the time was just opening for a local act with a big following, and we got a HUGE response from their fans. It was small and dark, but there was just fantastic energy there.

2). When you are 70 – how do you see your life?
At 70, I hope to have had a successful career in music, to have traveled the world and have used all of that to give my daughter the best life possible.

3). If you could talk to any of the rock-stars, dead or alive, whom would you talk to and what would you ask?
I would love to have had the opportunity to meet Ella Fitzgerald and ask her what her experience was like as a woman in the music business and what inspired her performances.

4). What countries and cities would you like to visit the most during the tour?
I think anywhere in the UK would be amazing. But I'd also love to play in Australia, Spain, Japan....ok, so yeah - pretty much anywhere they'd have me.

5). Which famous band/artist you would be glad to share the stage with?
I would be HONORED and probably in fits to share the stage with Florence and The Machine. Florence Welch is unbelievable.
