This… this podcast just makes me happy! Sitting here with this big f****n’, stupid grin on my face… what an interview!
English singer/songwriter Tanya Batt AKA BATTS Music (or one half of it anyway) and I became buddies through social media and various mutual friends, then she hit me up via Twitter a few months back about guesting on the ‘Hot & Delicious: Rocks The Planet' podcast after hearing my sit-down with her best friend Hayden Calnin... and I was like… yeah damn straight! Let’s do this!
The Glenlivet whiskey flows and man this lady just brings inspiring conversation and energy into the room!
We chat about horror movies, Tanya’s CUTEST first ever memory at the age of 2, San Francisco, her twin who died during childbirth, night terrors & sleep-walking, the evolution of the Tanya Batt music project to approaching 30 different producers from around the world, creating music with 8 producers from 8 different countries across 8 different genres, which led to Tanya forming BATTS Music with UK-based producer Alisdair Mason AKA Ficci, the two of them sending each other tracks recorded in two bedroom studios thousands of miles across the planet which has now culminated with Tanya buying a one-way ticket to the UK, so that they can take this project to the next level! Inspirational!
We spend time talking about her current pen pal in Cardiff, the music of Michael Jackson, Shirley Bassey and Nina Simone, a whole swag of amazing Australian music, the impact that producer and musician Hayden Calnin has made on her life, Tanya’s favourite podcasts (I’m hoping this is now one of them 😀), John William’s book ’Stoner’, BATTS Music's latest single ‘For That I’m Sorry’, which is featured exclusively at the end of this podcast… such an amazing track! Wait ’til you hear it!
Argggh…. I’m going to stop talking… just listen! Amaze!
