Today we're spending Seven Questions In Heaven with Jasmine Thompson!
Describe your music for our readers who may not be familiar with you.
You will find lots of stripped back acoustic covers of mine on YouTube. I am also featured on a few more upbeat dance songs. My single "Adore" and the upcoming EP is somewhere in between the two styles.
Who are your musical influences and idols?
I love Florence And The Machine. Her voice is so emotional and her songs are amazing. I also love watching Pink performing live.
What was the first album, cassette, or CD you bought with your own money?
The Ting Tings' We Started Nothing.
What was the strangest gig you've ever played?
There was one gig in London where I was the only the one in the audience watching the band play before me and then they were the only ones in the audience watching me when I sang. I still had fun, but it was a bit awkward.
What is your current favorite guilty pleasure?
Sleeping in late and watching Netflix!
If they named an ice cream flavor after you, what would be the name and why?
It would have to be something other than Jasmine because I don't think actual Jasmine flowers would taste nice. Maybe they would call it TantrumJas like my YouTube channel, but I don't know what that would taste like either!
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?
Florence And The Machine, James Bay, Rudimental, Ella Eyre, and Pink. We would sing "Dog Days" by Florence And The Machine.
