QUESTIONS & ANSWERS – der gig-blog-Fragenkatalog: Folge 80 mit SOPHIA KENNEDY
„Angel Lagoon“ heißt Sophia Kennedys & Carsten Erobique Meyers erste gemeinsame Single – Soul fom Veinsten. Jetzt sind die beiden zusammen auf ihrer ersten Tournee, und die Früherkenner aus dem Merlin haben sie gleich mal zu den Pop Freaks gebucht. Am kommenden Samstag (18.1.2014) dürfen wir Zeuge eines aufgehenden Sterns am Pophimmel werden.
Zur Einstimmung hat uns Sophia ein paar Fragen beantwortet, u. a. wie sie Erobique traf – fast eine Liebeserklärung.
What was the most wonderful gig you ever played?
Carngie Hall, N.Y.C – one hell of a party.
Where would you absolutely love to play?
Royal Opera House Muscat, Oman
Please describe your worst studio experience.
Once I recorded a featuring track with Snoop Lion. My text was : „Uh, Baby U so hot“. When it came to recording I had a total blackout and forgot my line.
What would your music sound like if Elvis had never existed?
Like a giraffe being strangled.
The title of the book that touched you most is…
„The Strangled Giraffe“
Which ringtone do you use?
It’s very repetitive.
Which Beatles song deserves a decent cover (by you)?
I don’t think it’s a good idea to cover the Beatles.
Which TV show is essential?
The Bill Cosby Show and I partly enjoy „Curb your enthusiasm“.
Please tell us your favourite joke.
Two snails talking on the phone.
Snail 1: It takes you for ever to finish a sentence.
Snail 2: that’s because I’m a snail.
Describe the perfect stage outfit.
Better to look good, than to feel good.
What would you be today if you had not become a pop star?
Didn’t know I was a Pop star!
In which band would you like to play (except your own)?
I’d like to form a band called „Dragon Skin“ and sing like a monkey on fire.
The greatest musical genius (dead or alive)?
Miley Cyrus? Never was so amazed by a tongue hanging out of a mouth. Maybe I should hang out with singing cows more often.
The most beautiful woman in show business?
How would you spend an unexpected gift of 1000 Euro (you’re not allowed to invest in alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, holidays or prostitution)?
On food and a motivation coach.
How did you meet Carsten Erobique Meyer and how is it like to work with him?
I met Carsten at a pool party where he told me that I should shower more often. Then we started to do music together and he helped me to produce my own stuff. He is the most patient, well-adjusted person I know. And a great musician & friend.
