Becky: I'm good. Life can definitely be hard sometimes, but for the most part
life is good.
MS: Yeah I totally agree with that!!
Becky: I can't stand to be bored, but I stay busy all the time! haha
A little time to myself
every now and then would be nice!
MS: So and tell me how did you get to meet the guys from Mew?
Becky: hehe ok, the story is pretty long, but
i'll try to make it short!
MS: lol I'm not in a hurry
Becky: Ok,I was 11 and I use to LOVE to chat on like chat lines,
I was a big Hanson fan I
have to admit :} haha
Becky: So I would like to get on music chat lines and talk to other
lololol we all have those things I had the BSB syndrome so..
haha, well I asked did anyone like Hanson? and no one replied..
then this one guy (Jonas) private messaged me and said: "No, but what other music
do you like?"
MS: hehe so nice!!!
so we started chatting and I told him I sang, and he told me he had a
and that he would like to hear me sing, so I sent him a video of me singing and
after a lot of emails and phone calls, he asked if I would sing on their next
he sent me a demo of the song and of course I loved it ( it's beautiful)
MS: gizz it is
and so my mom and I decided to fly to Copenhagen when I was 13 and I
Symmetry, in a REAL studio *laugh*. That was such an experience to me..
haha WOW yeah so SPECIAL!!
And better yet, Jonas let my mom and I stay in his apartment so we
have to pay money to stay in a hotel and he stayed with his parents. Europe was
beautiful! I want to go back.
First let me congratulate you for the fantastic mother you have!!
Becky: Thanks, she's great.
Tell me how did that experience change your life? I bet it changed it completly.
Well, I was like in the newspaper here (which is not that big of a deal
because i live in a small town),but..I had a guy hear about me in a big town and
he came down and did an interview on me! So I got like in a big paper!
It was nice, I don't know..
Becky: After the album was released, I started getting "fanmail" and that was
but I love that kind of stuff, it makes me feel so good, and I would like to
album of my own one day, so it just made me get a little taste of like the music
industry, and just made me want it even more
MS: With your voice, trust me I'm sure you will.
MS: And at school did u feel like you had now a different status in the eyes of
collegues? 'cause ppl can be mean for sometimes..
No not really, like at first, people did kind of think you know, "what's
big deal" or "she thinks she's something", but of course I was like in 8th grade
we were all young, but now it's not like anything, most people don't even
did that! haha
Frengers is becoming huge!! I'm sure it will get to the states!!
Becky: I'm so happy for them, they are really a great group of guys, I hope so!
MS: They sure are.. even though I dont know them lol
Are you still in contact with the guys?
Becky: I stay in contact with Jonas.
MS: Thats great!! For the moment did u collaborate with other musical projects?
What are your big plans for life now?
um, I'm not really sure. I would like to someday be apart of the music
that would be nice, if that doesn't work out I'll be a music teacher, but it
will be something
Great and dont be pessimistic I'm sure it will work, it started so well..
Whats your favourite Mew song?
Becky: "She Came Home for Christmas", "Eight flew over one was destroyed", those
MS: They are great indeed. I'm a huge mew fan, so as you can imagine it is a
to get to talk to you right now.
