Sui Zhen - Little Frog
1. Three words to describe your music:
Expressive, colourful, satisfying.
2. Greatest musical guilty pleasure?
I download karaoke backing instrumentals and record my vocals over the top then run them through effects so it sounds ‘authentic’.
3. Funniest thing that’s happened on tour:
After my set at Sonar in 2010 I was really emotional. It was one of the larger crowds I’d played in front of and I was using an electric guitar and vocals whereas the festival predominantly showcases electronic and ‘innovative’ musical artists. I felt extremely exposed and as I walked off stage I begun to sob. I couldn’t stop crying to put my guitar away. Then Moodymann appeared. He gave me a huge hug and said something like, “Gurrll, you keep doing what you’re doing, that shit is real…” and one of his babes was nodding beside him doing an ‘mm hmm’ type of thing. That was nice.
4. Couldn’t live without…
5. Favourite place on Earth?
