As an artist in the music industry, your career often is defined by the choices you make along the way. Some are easy, some are quite hard. When interviewing musicians, I like to challenge them a bit with some tough dilemmas. I name two terms (cities, persons, situations, you name it) and they can only choose one. Of course they have to explain shortly why they choose what they choose. Next up: Tove Styrke, a Swedish pop star that just released her second album, called Kiddo.
Here we go, Tove!
Bring it on!
Stockholm or London?
I would always say Stockholm, but now I am going to say London because I recently played a great gig which was the most fun I had in ages. The audience was amazing!
Good for you! Playing a gig or festival?
I would say a club gig. The more intimate the better, because you can really feel a connection with the people in the crowd.
Nice! Doing a world tour or scoring a worldwide hit?
Of course both would be amazing, but I am going with a world tour, because it is fun to get the opportunity to travel.
Tove Lo or Robyn?
Tove Lo… Because I know her.
I see… So you had to say that! Next one. Writing for other people or recording other people’s songs?
Writing for other people, because I love writing songs. I haven’t written anything for other artists yet though. Would be interesting to see how that will turn out.
Being part of the jury of a talent show or participating in Melodifestivalen and Eurovision?
I am going for the job as a judge, because I would be nice and not so mean…
I believe you! Thanks Tove!
