Describe what you do for a living? What does a typical day look like for you?

I am in a band called Lastlings with my brother. When we are touring it's usually all over the place. Each touring day consists of exploring the city we are in, soundcheck, napping, performing and then dinner. We are currently writing new music at the moment, so most days I have either been in the studio or at home writing. 


How do you approach your personal style?

I usually go for items that are minimal and comfortable. My wardrobe is mostly black and grey, but lately, I have been starting to go for items that are more daring and colourful and I think that I am really into it!

What’s your favourite Brie Leon piece (and why)?

My favourite Brie Leon piece is my gold chain necklace and matching bracelet. I wear them every day.


What are you reading, listening to and watching at the moment?

I have just started reading Killing Commendatore by Haruki Murakami. I have read a few of his books and I am a huge fan. 

I am currently listening to the new London Grammar album - It is beautiful. Her voice is incredible and I love the lyrics to each song. I’ve also been listening to an electronic artist from Melbourne called Juno Mamba. His music takes you to another place and I’ve been dancing around my room to his music. 

Last week I binged watched “Behind Her Eyes” on Netflix and now I am back to watching my favourite show called “Outlander”. It is set in Scotland which is at the top of my list for countries to visit!

What was some advice you wish you were given when starting out?

Never compare yourself to others. Keep focused and believe in your abilities. Never give up!


What’s something exciting that’s coming up for you in the next few months?

We have a few music festivals slots and shows lined up for the next few months. I am also moving cities soon which is pretty exciting too! 


Thank you Amy! @amyjanedowdle
