A Few months back, I was lucky to meet Cerys Matthews on a shoot with Red Magazine for the July issue. The iconic lead singer of Catatonia, she has also been a regular on one of my TV addictions, 'The Voice' on my favourite team (who doesn't love Tom Jones?) and it was truly inspiring meeting her.

It was fascinating to hear her talk about music and I had no idea she lived in the South of US for 5 years...she was telling us all about Graceland and the vibe of the southern states. I love her thick welsh accent, which is soft and calming and really carries a sense of deep enthusiasm for music and culture. On my lovefilm list now is the documentary 'Searching for Sugarman', which Cerys recommended.
