Today I'm chatting to the very beautiful and extremely gifted, Katrina Burgoyne. Katrina's spine tingling debut single "Ghost" has been tagged the first of many "drop everything and listen" songs off her debut album. Once you hear her voice, I know you'll be hooked.
What inspired you to become a country music artist?
I’ve always had a passion for music, I started writing my own songs at eleven. Growing up in Gunnedah, NSW, the inspiration from the Country Music Capital- Tamworth was just 45 minutes away.
Can you tell us a bit about your most recently released album, or song?
I released my debut album in March 2011 “White Flag”. I was so pleased to have 3 top 10 charting singles and 2 Golden Guitar Nominations. It was a great year.
What are you working on now?
I am just about to release a brand new EP with four new tracks, something a little different but something I’m definitely proud of.
Have you got a favourite song that you sing? If yes, what is it?
I love singing “the carnival” coming off my new EP.
“Step Inside, step inside you want to feel the thrill of a carnival ride?
Step inside, step inside but we’ll steal your soul if you close your eyes”
Swag or room service for a romantic date?
I’ve never been a “country” girl. However recently I had the best date fishing in a tinny. I’m not a “princess” so room service or a swag would make a great date… it’s all about the company and if they can make me laugh.
Holden, Ford...or something else?
TOYOTA.. always been a Toyota girl.. I’ve only had 4 cars of my own.. 3 were Toyotas… Just brought a brand new Rav… LOVE IT!
I love all things sweet…. Homemade is another one of my favourites…. But I also love fruit.
Pride and Prejudice- I’m a sucker for the romantic movies.
Favourite Aussie saying?
“Mate” I use this way too much.
If you could have a kangaroo, koala, wombat, crocodile, galah or python as a pet which one would you choose, and why?
Ewww… Python, Crocodile… NO WAY! I am scared of snakes, and crocks. I would say a Kangaroo because when I come home late a night I have about 15 sitting in my front yard.
Who would you like to trade places with for a day, alive or dead,
A great songwriter, I would love to get in their head.
If I looked in your fridge right now what would I find?
Chopped up watermelon, last nights road chock, pumpkin salad… and the usual. However I just cleaned out my fridge… yesterday would have been different.
Craziest thing you’ve ever done?
I may have skinny dipped in my local tourist fountain, it was very dark.
If you were going on holiday tomorrow, where would it be?
UK, I would love to take a holiday to the UK.
Four words that describe you...
Fun, Energetic, Adventurous and Ambitious.
