Now that over a year has passed since the death of David Bowie, one might expect that the international music audience would learn to live with this loss and just move on.

Andrew and I have been working together for nearly five years now. When he came to me with the idea for his latest project, it didn’t take him much convincing for me to jump on board; I trusted his vision and believed his passion.

I was going to be a doctor – just like my dad - but music kept getting in the way.
