Nigel Walters from the Wheeze & Suck Band introduced her to alternate tunings and the wonders of folk music. jennybiddle

Her inspirations include John Mayer’s melody, delivery and musicality, Silverchair’s alternate tunings, Josh Cunningham’s (The Waifs) energy and articulation, and the way Ian Moss (Cold Chisel) makes a guitar TALK.

After 20 years you can see the love affair stronger than ever, as she wraps herself around a self-made guitar.
