If you could go back (or forward) to live in any decade, when would you choose?

Gosh, 1920s, I think!

Who would be your dream co-writer?

Great Question. I’m going to say Glen Hansard. He’s so deep, and Once is one of my favourite movies.

If a song started playing every time you entered the room, what would you want it to be?

Hahaha. Okay, hmmm. “Cissy Strut” by the Meters.

What is the one thing you can’t survive without on tour?

My beating heart. Literally.

What are you most afraid of?

I’m going to say total failure.

Who is your celebrity crush?

Depends on the day! I just saw Baby Driver, so I’m going with Lily James. She’s gorgeous and super talented.

Pickles or olives?

Both, but mostly olives.

Plane, train, or automobile?

Train all the way.

Which is worse — rainy days or Mondays?

I love them both, actually. If you put a gun to my head, I’d say Mondays because I love rain!
