My style has no structured math to it. I would go into a complete petrified mess on the floor if someone said, ‘Do you know what a four/eight is?’ Musicians that I work with know that I’m actually like a kid. They might say ‘You know in the chorus, in the second beat…’ and I’ll say ‘No’ because I don’t know what a chorus is from a verse. I can recognise it if you play the song because I’ll listen to the words.
