ARTIST:  Katie Cole

SONG: “(We Started A) Fire”

BIRTHDATE: October 25th

HOMETOWN: Melbourne, Australia


AMBITIONS: I’d love to write a song that an absolute music legend records one day. I’d like to write a number 1 hit also.

TURN-OFFS: People that can’t drive their cars on the freeway properly. It’s called a Blinker!!! Also I hate people that use the words “daycation” or “staycation”. No! Just No.

TURN-ONS: When I discover there is one more potato chip in the bag. Sexy!!! I also love animals …so people that love animals too and understand why I have more weird/cute animals pics on my phone than people.

DREAM GIG: I’d love to perform at Hyde Park in the UK. Also I have a soft spot for David Letterman. I’d love to perform on his show.

FAVORITE LYRIC: “Pick a song and sing a yellow nectarine. Take a bath, I’ll drink the water that you leave. If you should die before me ask if you can bring a friend. Pick a flower, hold your breath and drift away” from chorus of  the Stone Temple Pilots song Still Remains. It’s poetic, strange and I still can’t quite work out what it’s about. Lovely.

CRAZIEST PERSON I KNOW: There’s a girl in the mirror that’s always trouble. This is true.

SONG I WISH I WROTE: “Tiny Dancer” Elton John.

5 PEOPLE I’D MOST LIKE TO HAVE DINNER WITH: Well, I’m adding the note that these people can from past or present, can be cartoon characters Paul McCartney, Homer Simpson, Janis Joplin, David Bowie, Ricky Gervais

MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: Stevie Wonder when he came out to Australia about 7/8 years ago. It was hard as he has so many hits and missed so many of them. I understand that his concert couldn’t be 3 hours long. haha. There was a standout moment when his daughter Aisha Morris sang an incredible rendition of “I’m gonna laugh you right out of my life”. Amazing..and Stevie was so proud of her too.
