Your music is SO varied. ‘Good Stuff’ is the perfect falling-in-love mellow tune, whilst ‘Sound Of Your Voice’ makes me want to dance. Do you have a genre you’re most drawn to?
G: I mean, overall I just love writing pop. I love writing major melodies, and emotional lyrics over simple and interesting production. So hopefully even though songs may sound different they all kind of come under that bracket.
When did you find your singing voice, so to speak? Does your family possess the same passions?
G: My dad can sing! But I think I mainly found it from growing in church. When you’re surrounded by live music very sunday it’s quite inspiring as a kid, and it definitely encouraged me to get into music and start singing.
Your bubble ponytail has become your signature. Can you tell us your secrets for its perfection…
G: Haha, a lot of extensions to get the length. I can do the ponytail well, but it’s never as perfect as when Tomi my hair stylist does it for me. There’s something about a good hair stylist’s touch that makes everything way more slick.
You’ve previously said you’re more in touch with your Chinese heritage than your Jamaican. Did you have a favourite dish your mum made while you were growing up, from her province in China?
G: Braised pork belly (hong shao rou). I really need to get all her recipes.
