“Madalene Callow.”

“Sing and write songs.”


When did you start doing that?


“Some time ago, but things only started becoming more serious around five years ago.”


Why did you start doing that?


“There are a few reasons, but a significant moment was when I was about 15 and I first heard Fiona Apple’s album Tidal; I remember wanting to sound like her. I’ve always enjoyed performing and the transformation of going from ‘drab to fab’, so to speak.”

“Singing for my granny while my brother accompanied me on guitar.”


And your least proud?


“That’s a tricky one… Letting someone down is awful or not being at rehearsal on time – I hate being late.”
