I've heard you described as "one of Australia's superior
songwriters". How does that make you feel? I'd be lying if I said
it didn't make me feel a bit good.
What makes a good song to you? Songs that make you feel.
They might make you feel better, sadder or even simply like
dancing, but they touch you on some level.
What's the secret to keep a band together? I don't quite know if
I'm the person to ask given that we've had five drummers in our
five years of being together! Very spinal tap, sweetie!
How do you make decisions if you're split down the middle? To
be honest, Stella has been a pretty cruisy one-headed beast of
late ... there's not much we disagree on.
Paul Mac produced your single "She", who else would you
like to work with? I'm really focused on songwriting for other
people at the moment so I'd love to work with Linda Perry --
she used to be the lead singer for Four Non Blondes but now
is a songwriter/producer. I think she's an incredible talent.
(Linda produced albums for Christine Aguilera and Pink that
contained the songs "Beautiful" and "Get This Party Started"
that she wrote.)
Biggest frustration as a musician? The difficulty getting songs
played on commercial radio.
What's the most important thing you'd like to achieve with Stella
One Eleven? Having the most added song on Australian Radio!
What else is important to you other than music? Hanging out
with my dog, studying the mystics, meditating, holidays by the
ocean (I'm going to Bali in May!) and fine food with friends. Oh
yeah, and not taking anything too seriously -- especially music!
Most importantly I've seen the cookbook page on your website
and can't wait to have a go at Genevieve's cumin salt crust
chicken. Have you tried it? Yes -- I've tried most of Genevieve's
recipes and reckon she should write her own cook book -- she's
a great chef!
Melissa Etheridge was once rumoured to be playing her but
in more recent news Pink has just signed on to play Janis Joplin
in the upcoming biopic. The film which has been in
development for 15 years follows the iconic music star's rapid
rise to fame in the 60s before her tragic death from a heroin
overdose at age 27 And in more "when pop singers take on
the big screen" news, Kylie Minogue has signed on to play a
character in the upcoming 007 flick. Secret sources have
revealed that she is a favourite to play for a role and now it's
just a matter of working out "whether she'll play the good
Bond girl, or the evil Bond girl" I can't tell you how excited
I am to hear Ms k.d. lang has a new album out in June
titled Hymns From the Forty-Ninth Parallel. More news next
month! If you're craving some new sounds in May check out
the new albums from Angie Stone, The Waifs (live), Alanis
Morrisette, Melissa Auf Der Maur, Avril Lavigne and PJ Har vey.
