I have no clue. I can only hope for the same success that I have achieved in The States. I really don’t know what will happen here. Your song ‘Parachutes’ was recorded by Cheryl Cole. How aware of her work were you before she recorded the track? I did not know of her at all. Do you find it hard hearing your work covered by other artists? No, I think it is both flattering and thrilling to hear something you made through someone else’s voice. You have recently performed several dates in the UK, how did you find the response? Everyone was very kind and gracious. Also slightly reserved tinged with a touch of craziness. Whilst in the UK, you often made reference through Twitter and in your live show to Mary Poppins. How does the reality compare to the world of Mary Poppins? There are no singing orphans or chimney sweeps.

everyone?

Your career was kickstarted via the internet, do you think the medium has opened the music industry to

Yes definitely. Although now I feel like the internet is over saturated with music and musicians. All things come in waves. If you had one piece of advice for someone trying to break it, what would it be? Be a musician because you can not be anything else. Do not do it for fame or money because for the most part you will be let down. Put your heart in your words and be yourself. That’s succeeding in my mind. Words & Images: Jeremy Williams
