How would you describe your musical style?
Lotta Lindgren: I would say that it’s a mix of soul, pop and indie.
What is the first album you ever owned? How did you get it?
LL: I can’t remember the exact first record I owned. But one of the first ones that I really remember is Magical Mystery Tour by the Beatles. My parents always gave me a record with them or The Beach Boys for every birthday from the age of 8 or so.
What are three things you look for when you see an artist play live?
LL: The connection with their audience and their presence on stage. How they interact together with the band is always fun to see.
Who is your superhero alter ego and why?
LL: When I was a kid I thought Michelle Pfeiffer as Cat Woman was the coolest. So probably her. She seemed so confident but sometimes she’d get so vulnerable and insecure. I think many can relate to that.
If we’re going to buy you a drink, what should it be?
LL: The safest bet is red wine, 99% of the time.
What’s a song you have stuck in your head these days?
LL: “All Night Long” by Beyonce.
What’s your favorite thing to order from room service?
LL: It kind of became a thing to order a Ceasar salad wherever I went on the last tour, but I’d say breakfast. That’s probably my favorite meal.
Where do you find your artistic inspiration?
LL: It can be from watching a live show, that always makes me feel inspired and excited to write music. Traveling gives a lot of inspiration too.
Who’s your style icon?
LL: I’m not sure if I have one certain style icon. But I love Jane Birkin and Francoise Hardy sense of style.
How did growing up in Stockholm shape your musical background and career so far?
LL: I grew up with parents who work as musicians, so I think that always inspired me. To see that you could actually do it for a living. And I’ve only gone to schools in Sweden where I could make music in some way. That’s how I met friends early on who loved to do the same thing as me, and how I started my first band and started recording. So I think it really had a big impact on me.
