Do you think being a woman and a musician is different from being a man and a musician? If so, how? Was there a moment that made a difference clear to you?

"It is different just because it's rare, especially technic stuff, men are amazed/scared/ of you, but it will soon change, because more and more women take over computers. When I arrived to Israel ( after 21 years in Paris, france) men were really shocked of my knowledge and productions, and women were also a bit intimidated, it's an adventage, because it makes a first impression , but what you do with it after that depend on your real talent :-)"

Do you see differences between generations of women musicians?

... only technology has changed... :-)

Did anyone ever give you any valuable advice about making your way in the music industry? What advice would you give to a woman musician just starting out?

"the same as to a guy--> be yourself, look deep in you and once you love what you've found be strong and flexible all the way out!

Try to be independant, don't be lazy, and love everything you do, bureaucracy as the music itself, if you don't love it-> let someone else do it!

Surround yourself with good and talented people, pay them for their good work, and keep clean connections. Be a professional!

Why did you choose to play the instrument you play?

I mainly sing, it's the closest connection possible to yourself, and I produce because I want to be free to sing as much as I want :-))
