Who are you and where are you from?
I’m Indiana and I’m from Loughborough.
Who are your favourite artists from home?
Home for a while was Nottingham and we’ve had some amazing artists break through. I love D.I.D, they are such talented vocalists and musicians plus they are lovely lads!
What’s it really like touring?
I love it so much! But I miss my babies terribly. There will be lots of FaceTime with them on tour.
What’s your favourite city/town/venue to play?
So far Glasgow has been the stand out city each time I’ve toured. The crowd are so welcoming and up for it!
What’s your ideal festival line-up?
I never got to see Michael Jackson live, he’d be the headline act with support from Whitney (circa 1985) and Blondie (circa 1980).
What has been your biggest achievement of the year?
My album was released! It reached 17 in the UK album charts. Very excited to release ‘Blind As I Am’ from the album as my next single.
What was the worst piece of advice you were given?
To colour my hair lilac. It went green. But I’m going with it. It’s minty.
What do you do to relax?
Sleep. I love sleep. And I don’t get to do it very much… My 20 month-old still doesn’t sleep through!
What are you reading?
‘Revolution’. Russell Brand is so insightful. The book is an eye opener; I was never into politics but I think it’s so important to keep up to date with it now. There’s so much we don’t know that is kept from us. If I was to give some advice to the youth of today, it would be to get to know about politics and the government and how it’s run.
How about TV, anything good on the box?
Game of Thrones!! And Orange is the New Black!
Do you have a favourite YouTube video?
Cat compilations are my thing.
What website do you visit most?
YouTube… Catching my daily ‘Trews’.
Who is your favourite current artist?
Shura has it.
A new artist that you are most excited about?
Rat boy is the new Jamie T.
What was the last great gig you have seen?
Outkast. Andre 3000 floored me!
Erm… I don’t want to say…
What should we expect from your Irish shows?
A 1/4 Irish girl losing herself in the music on stage!
Indiana will play The Workman’s, Dublin, this coming Sunday, May 17th. Tickets for the show are €13 and are available here.
