Laura Comfort – Exclusive Interview

Laura Comfort:

That did very well. I toured with Cafe Nero all over the country, zig-zagging from Leeds to Cardiff, Birmingham, Manchester…

Response from Clown Magazine:

...seeing the sights of England!

Laura Comfort:

…and then I ended up [with] the Club Mix with the title track Now I Know [which] was Number 10 in the Club Charts…

Response from Clown Magazine:

…getting cool, with the Clubsters!

Laura Comfort:

…and the previous year I was Number 16 in the Club Charts and the year before that Number 18 in the Club Charts.

Response from Clown Magazine:

…improving as you go along!

Laura Comfort:

Those were the biggest moments over the last few years.

Clown Magazine:

Elaborate further on current projects?

Laura Comfort:

I’m sure we’ll have some more exciting support slots. Maybe some festivals in the summer.

Response from Clown Magazine:

car crash moment…

CORONAVIRUS has hit the world!

Laura Comfort:

Maybe I’ll do a Christmas single…

Response from Clown Magazine:

Hopefully the coronavirus pandemic may have eased for Christmas?

Laura Comfort:

…maybe a kids album too, actually.

Response from Clown Magazine:

Have you got a big [personal[ announcement?

Laura Comfort:

I just had twins in November last year!

Response from Clown Magazine:

Congratulations!

Laura Comfort:

So while I was touring I was pregnant, it was a great distraction. The pregnancy was fine and now I have two beautiful babies.

So, I have been busy these last few months.

So who knows, I can get inspired and write some childrens songs as well.

Response from Clown Magazine:

Yeah! Your children can do the backing vocals.

Clown Magazine:

Is there anything creatively you want to do or achieve?

Laura Comfort:

For me it’s all about furthering my creative dreams and the spontaneity and not really knowing what the future holds.

But we all love to work with amazing producers and artists and stages and if you connect with the audience, whether on a big stage or a small stage, it’s a wonderful thing…

Response from Clown Magazine:

need to whip-up the crowd,

is always cool!

Laura Comfort:

…and to me songwriting is a therapeutic process and its a bit autobiographical, so its a nice way of putting your experiences and emotions to express then through songs.

Response from Clown Magazine:

poetry to our ears!

Clown Magazine:

Would you spend all of your life in a city in the desert, or would you trek into the unknown?

Laura Comfort:

I love to travel the world. I don’t necessarily like to stay in one place. I love London. London is my home and the perfect hub.

I love to explore the world and different cultures. It is inspiring for lyrics and for me having that spontaneity and to be able to explore the world is probably what I would choose above staying in one city for the rest of my life.

Response from Clown Magazine:

…taking a risk, we like it!

Clown Magazine:

The last word is yours…

Laura Comfort:

I guess what most artists say is to be true to yourself and follow your dreams.

Just have patience, have conviction, have passion and perseverance and stick with it and don’t listen to what other people say, but follow your heart and see where it leads you.

Response from Clown Magazine:

The best way to achieve things in life!

Clown Magazine:

er… have you forgotten something?

Laura Comfort:

Promote the album. I kinda forgot that! [Laughs]

[All of us laughing!]

Response from Clown Magazine:

please carry on…

Laura Comfort:

Promoting my new album, Now I Know and is out on Amazon and iTunes, is an acoustic-pop album with emotive love songs and it was great fun writing it and singing it and we had a great tour last year to promote it.

Response from Clown Magazine:

don’t let us stop you…

Laura Comfort:

We had an EP out last year of several mixes from Bimbo Jones and they are amazing and they are a sort of dance duo and they’ve worked with Britany Spears and tons of other amazing acts.

They worked there magic and I was Number 10 in the UK Club Charts last year [in 2019], so that was very exciting.

So, I will be promoting my club mixes, so stay tuned and see you on stage.

Response from Clown Magazine:

…stop teasing us, anything else?

Laura Comfort:

So yes, if you want to find me on iTunes or Amazon, or YouTube. Got a video out now for Now I Know and the club mix is Number 10 in the Club Charts, so its been an exciting year and there’s more to come!

Thank you to Laura Comfort

Sylvia G – Interview

Sylvia G

Clown Magazine:

You’ve changed your artist name from Milow the Girl to Sylvia G, why is that?

Sylvia G:

It did not translate into who I was anymore. I think I grew out of that name. Musically and personally.

The transition happened when I left the label I was signed to in the United States.

There was no more connection to my present nor my future.

So I decided to turn the page, change to Sylvia G and follow a different road.

Response from Clown Magazine:

That makes sense to do, but you’ll have to start to promote your new artist name and build a new presence.

Clown Magazine:

Are you changing your style of music?

Sylvia G:

I felt I had to improve and challenge myself.

Explore my potential in another musicial direction that translates who I am today.

I was not growing musically and professionally.

When you perform and create music it reflects what goes on on your life, I was unhappy professionally and it showed in my music.

Response from Clown Magazine:

So, hopefully more ‘happy’ songs from you in future releases.

Clown Magazine:

What project are you working on, now?

Sylvia G:

I am writing a novel for Young Adults.

Response from Clown Magazine:

Well, from music to novels, at least you’re doing something creative.

Clown Magazine:

Have you got a new release?

Sylvia G:

Yes, my new album SOS, that was released on the 22nd March 2019.

Response from Clown Magazine:

Great! Now you can promote the ‘new’ songs and new ‘artist’ name for your audience.

Clown Magazine:

What do you have planned?

Sylvia G:

Raising awareness of environmental issues and fighting against animal cruelty.

It must become part of daily life and the way we live.

There is no more time left.

Response from Clown Magazine:

These are noble causes, you’re engaged with.

Clown Magazine:

You are on a yacht and the mask breaks, would you continue for 800km through stormy weather or would you turn back and return to port, which is 200km, but is in shark infested waters?

Sylvia G:

Sharks generally do not attack humans.

I would be more afraid if the sea was infested with people!

Response from Clown Magazine:

We think you could-be the shark whisperer!

So, no fear in those shark infested waters!

Clown Magazine:

Anything else you want to talk about, say or announce to the world?

Sylvia G:

Our planet is beautiful and majestic, but we are killing it.

We have replaced our oceans with plastic.

More than 9 million tons of plastic end-up every year in our oceans. This number is expected to double in the coming years!

We are burning our forests – rainforests, which are the ‘green’ lungs of our planet and destroying what is left of wildlife.

What will it take for you to change?

What will happen when there is nothing left on our planet.

The only way to stop this, is to change our behaviour towards our planet and to change it now.

Not only for us, but for future generations.

Everything in this world is connected.

Every action you take has an impact on another life in your community, in your village, your city or on the otherside of the world.

We should all be inspired by Greta Thunberg, this young 16 year old climate activist;

“Politicians are not mature enough to tell it as it is, we cannot solve a crisis without treating it as a crisis… politicians have run-out of excuses while we run-out of time…”

“Our house is burning!”

Response from Clown Magazine:

You seem very dedicated to the environmental movement, causes and issues.

Clown Magazine:

We would like to thank Sylvia G for this interview and wish you well – in your creative and activism endeavours.

S.O.S – Album Review @ClownMagazine

Interview with Perfect Blue Sky

Perfect Blue Sky [One]

Perfect Blue Sky is a duo supergroup formed by Australian musician Jane Kitto and Swedish metalist Pna Andersson.

The Interview

1.) What do you stand for?…

We are all about the art and serving music.

…and how does this translate within your group, Perfect Blue Sky?

We record life observations and translate our thoughts and questions with music.

2.) What is your most recent work?

Our latest album “The Eye of Tilos”

…tell us more?

The Eye of Tilos was written on the island of Tilos, Greece.

…the land of the ancient world, what ideas have you put into The Eye of Tilos”?

We see our music as a timeless canvas on which we paint our everyday ideas, love, questions and answers. 

3.) What is the most interesting form of transport, you’ve used when out-on-the-road?

     We’ve done everything, apart from using dog-sledge and rocketships. 

Perfect Blue Sky

4.) What is the most adventurous place you’ve played?

Svalbard – [quick infobomb Svalbard is part of the Kingdom of Norway, which is in the Arctic Ocean, that is nearer to the Northpole region.]

                        …any more details?

                                                                        It was their [Svalbard] summertime, so the sun never went down, and the Svalbard’s put their rifles in the umbrella stands outside the local supermarket, that they use to ward-off hungry Polar Bears!  

5.) Does having that Big-One-Hit interest you?

We have never met a band or artist so far who wanted to be a One-Hit-Wonder. 

                                   …please elaborate,

If you are in love with your music it’s a lifelong relationship no matter how many sales you achieve or what position your music charts.  

6.) If you were imprisoned would you like to do 6 months solitary confinement, or 6 years in a Gulag?

Nelson Mandela was incarcerated for 17 years, but he was never a prisoner in his mind…

                                 …interesting,

We see people everyday who are imprisoned on their way to work, stuck in their lives, afraid to follow their dreams…

                                …we see your passion for this tough question, we’ve asked,

                     Being a prisoner is a state of mind! 

                    6 months of mediation sounds like the way to go! 

                               …WOW! Powerfully said!

7.) Okay, so give us something you like to say to our readership?

  • Never stop dreaming
  • Never stop searching for true love
  • Never turn down a good cup of coffee

life is in the details. 

Thank you – Jane Kitto and Pna Andersson for your time in this interview with us here at Clown Magazine.

Perfect Blue Sky album The Eye of Tilos is available at Apple Music
