Jude Perl is a singer-songwriter based in Melbourne who is about to embark on her second solo show. She's an American. She spent about a year in a cult when she was a tiny child. But she lives here now, and is only in one cult - the cult of being AWESOME.
Seriously, I was joking when I asked her about the cult thing, I didn't expect a serious response in the affirmative...moving forward!
Anyway, Jude and Geraldine (that's me) talk about how writing can be a pain in the arse, the weird way people who don't sing for a living seem to consider themselves experts on what is an amazing voice, the asbestosis risk of my rental property, discovering that explaining The Leyland Brothers to someone who has never seen them is a significant challenge, eating Tang by the spoonful, Jude's tenuous grip on reality (she struggles to differentiate movies from life, apparently...COME ON JUDE!!), quokkas, how Paul McCartney gives us musical blue balls, empaths, cultural appropriation, weird noises people make in their sleep, haunted houses, and why Beyoncé could work on being just a little bit crap. We also have a swearing AND scat solo warning. You've been informed. But stick with it, it's worth it.
