Steph Hannah asks Miss Elm:

What inspires your song-writing?


Usually, it is really horrible males.


What has been your favourite gig you've played at so far?


A small warehouse (turned circus arena) called 'contortionist studios' back in Brisbane last month packed full of attentive and warming smiles. I was so nervous I wore...

'No beer and no dancing make Homer something, something…' is what I often murmured to myself as I sat through Ben Folds.
