“John Lennon was a big inspiration for me as a person, musician, and activist, so definitely The Beatles. It was great, brilliant, absolutely stellar. For me, The Beatles were a great inspiration.
“I didn’t really understand the voice that much at the time, but I know I must’ve been soaking that in how voices can do extraordinary things, particularly the harmonies that The Beatles used to do.
“So there was The Beatles; obviously, The Rolling Stones, [The Who singer] Roger Daltrey, all of those early rock musicians were music was starting to get louder, so singers would have to sing louder because they didn’t have in-ears and stuff those days.
“So it was a combination of all those great artists that inspired me. I’ve always said if you’re a singer, you should really try and listen to every way that the human voice can be used in the singing sense.”
