Fast Five: Girl Called Johnny

MTTM

Triangle

When did you begin making music, and did you ever ponder a different career?

I started writing songs when I was 14 and before that I wanted to write books, apart from that though I’ve always just wanted to make music. I had a couple of disastrous side jobs as a waitress but I never really had the talent for it.

How would you describe your music?

It’s pop, but in the old school sense. Stories, melodies and guitars.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

The last year I’ve just been locked in the studio making an album which will be out soon and I’m working on a new video for the next single. The Heaven Knows video was very low budget and was made with a few of my friends, and I’ve found having creative control over everything from videos to artwork to be very liberating

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

I would have loved to have worked with Rowland S Howard because he wrote beautiful, sad songs

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album? 

Iggy Pop The Idiot for night times with moonshine, as its the polar opposite to the sound of waves on the shore.
