1. Describe yourself in 3 words?
Hmmmmmm – that’s a hard one.
I would hope to be described as loving. That is our main job on this planet – to love ourselves and our earth.
2. What are you doing at the present?
I am currently touring South East Asia with my trio Elixir and am about to do some solo concerts in Singapore. When I get home I will finish off my national tour for my new album Songbook, prep for my upcoming July tour with classical guitarist Karin Schaupp (for our album Songs of the Southern Skies) and start learning new repertoire for some exciting upcoming collaborative projects.
3. What inspires you?
My family and nature.
4. Is there an experience or time in your life that has truly changed the way you live? (i.e. – more conscious about living sustainably)
I think becoming a parent was the major turning point. Although I have always been a greenie and have been vegetarian most of my life, when you think about the future you want for your children you realize how much more you could be doing.
5. Do you have a message or a tip for the 1 Million Women community about how to live by the principle that ‘less equals more?
I think less is more is a beautiful message for life in general. Some of the most incredible music in the world is profound in its simplicity and beauty.
The journey of a musician is about learning, learning, learning and then trying to distill this knowledge into a powerful, simple moment.
At the end of the day we just need our loved ones and our beautiful earth – all else pales in significance. And if you love yourself and your family and friends then you will love the planet too.
