I don’t know what they were trying to get Anna to say, but this was cute :3
“Before a show I warm up my voice and I warm up my hands to play guitar and I drink some pineapple juice, because it’s good for your throat basically. And I try and drink lots of water. Just before I go on stage I’m kind of not really thinking about anything. If I was to have lots of thoughts, it would be a distraction. The thought I have just before I walk out on stage is like ‘I really hope tonight’s not going to be the night I fall in my stilettos’. And I’ve been alright so far, but one day it’s probably going to happen.” - Anna Calvi

“I like space in my music. I make a lot of effort to create atmospheres. I want the instruments to tell the story as much as the lyrics do. Every note you sing has to be important. Every note you play on the guitar has to mean something. I don’t want my music full of crap. I’m like that in life: I don’t natter on, nah-nah-nah. I’m quite quiet. I just say something when I have something to say, and my music’s like that as well.” - Anna Calvi
