I’ve been performing since I was a kid. I never really had a fear of public speaking, singing, acting or any of that stuff. I always felt at home on the stage. I stopped performing when I left high school and never really did anything (musically) when I was at university. I wrote (secretly), but I never did any performing.
When I moved to Cape Town I started working at night as a singing waitress. I was a HORRIBLE waitress, I’m being honest here. I think the only reason I didn’t get fired was because of my singing ability and my love of performing. I was hardly getting any sleep, but singing kept me happy. It was then when I realised that writing songs and performing them is my therapy. It keeps me sane.
The folks at Boom fm sent me the video of me performing Today is the day. Have a look:
That jacket is becoming one of my favourites
