Today we're spending Seven Questions In Heaven with The Singularity!
Describe your music for our readers who may not be familiar with you.
I like to take music I love and combine and switch it up a little. Rock and Electronic music are my touchstones. I produce and play all the instruments, although guitar and keyboards are my most comfortable instruments so it tends to revolve around them mostly, but I like it to be thoughtful and beaty overall. At the finals of the Lamn jam competition, an audience member described our live show as "What if Bowie, Prince and The Cure had a baby?"
Who are your musical influences and idols?
I love Bowie, Prince, The Beatles, Radiohead. Anyone whose music transcends the genre Rock/Pop music. It's important to me that Music is treated as ART. All the above artists have a very defined musical world that communicates at a much deeper level than the surrounding dross of the times.
What was the first album, cassette, or CD you bought with your own money?
Sign O The Times by Prince.
What was the strangest gig you've ever played?
I played mainstage at The LA Pride Festival, which was a great honour for a straight artist. It was most definitely the "freest" festival I have ever been to. To be performing for a crowd of crazy transsexuals and flamboyant "out" kids and adults was an inspiring sight, From the Dark Bowie fans to the day-glo electro nudists, the whole event gave a new meaning to the word "controversial."
What is your current favorite guilty pleasure?
Watching art movies on my times off, Russell Brand's Trews and listening to Alan Watts. Watching Archer, Tim And Eric.
If they named an ice cream flavor after you, what would be the name and why?
It would be Frozen Yoghurt, and it would be called The Singularity as it would be milk chocolate with Blueberries with a Dark Chocolate Black Hole in the middle.
Final question: You're the opening act of a music festival. You can get any five artists, living or dead, to perform on the bill with you. Which five do you choose and what song do you all perform as the final jam?
Radiohead, Roxy Music, John Lennon, Bowie, Prince, Cocteau Twins and we play a neverending version of Unfinished Sympathy by Massive Attack!
