— You latest videos for So Many Men and 33, Single & Broke are both built around the image of you that is an unforgettable combination of artificial and organic – a historic wig and elaborate make-up are a striking contrast with bare feet, natural face expressions, dancing and the whole chilling on the couch thing. How did you come up with it and what does it have to do with the songs?
— I love that you felt the contrast between the ostensible image of "Marie" - my album's protagonist – and the realness of what she is going through and how she acts. My upcoming album is called "33, Single & Broke" - just like it's first single. The title is uncomfortably honest and very on the nose. But that's life sometimes! I found myself at the start of the pandemic – 33 years old and suddenly without all my normal work and life as a musician. On top of that I experienced a break up 1 week before lock down started - the timing was horrible. It felt like everything was striped away and all I had was my honesty, my feelings and my guitar. So I made this album to tell my story - and a big part of that was dealing with all the pressures that women face in their thirties. There is a very strong societal picture of where one should be at this age – if you not hitched up, with kids, highly successful and making good money, somehow you're made to feel like you a lacking. Not good enough.
