I don’t think there’s an argument that it should be rare.”
What are your musical influences?
“I’ve always been attracted to music that is more than just the individual note-form in isolation—the melody, the harmony, the arrangement. If you’re looking at a song as if you’re listening to someone sing, I think there’s a difference here.

I don’t like to record what I consider to be a contralto sound, I like to capture a real contralto sound. If you’re trying to create something real to you then that means you should be making a real contralto sound, not just a contralto playing it. If I was making a real contralto sound when I was recording that it should be there, but what happens is in the studio, I’d be playing the notes a second time which sounds like I’m not really playing them.”
What does your voice sound like to you when you start singing in pitch?
“It sounds like it’s being thrown out. I love how I go really slow and I’ll sing to something and it sounds like the whole room goes silent. All of a sudden it sounds like, ‘Oh,
