As a musician, what is your definition of success?
I think success is what you make of it. For me I already feel a huge sense of success personally as I am here maintaining a career that I love and enjoy. Performing in front of audiences who have paid to be there and see and hear you always makes me feel slightly horrified but then it also makes me care so much about what I am able to give back in return and that gives me a huge sense of success and achievement. Of course, there’s another aspect to the success of a great career but mine is still building itself and I am in no rush to be singing leading ladies at The Met, though one day, that would be very nice!
