Well, my thoughts about California are kind of mythological. To me, as well as being a real place, it’s a place where people go to find something – to find happiness or to realize their dreams. So it has that kind of quality of heroism and heartache, and Australia has that, as well.

The thing with playing live is, most of the audience is in their 20s and 30s. If you’re older than that, you don’t tend to go out to shows anymore. So it’s good if you can attract a younger audience because they’ve got the energy to get up off the sofa and go out.

My mother features quite heavily in a lot of my songs.
