This article is from 2012.
What time is breakfast?
6am with my two-year-old or 8.30 if my wonderful husband is on duty!
Tea or coffee?
Neither. Unless you have chai, which cafés rarely do here.
Smoking or non-smoking?
Non smoking. Unless it’s 3am and I should know better.
Sweet or savoury snacks?
Savoury, unless … (see above)
What food do you miss when you tour?
Who’s the best cook you know?
I fancy myself as a bit of a cook actually #humble
What’s on your rider?
Water. And tequila but I usually have to supply that myself.
Which country / city has the best food?
Melbourne, without a doubt.
Do you eat out a lot?
When we are touring then yes. Sometimes that’s awesome but these days it means entertaining a two-year-old with crayons and breadsticks until the food arrives.
Do you drink onstage?
Um. Usually I like a glass of white but during a festival it’s water all the way (until the last week maybe).
