Hi Barns, thanks for joining us for a talk in this hot weather.
No problem! I’m kinda sweaty, but that’s totally okay.
It’s your second time at the festival, but this time you have an album out and there’s an album coming. What has changed for you?
Whether people know my tunes or not, I can get a crowd if I have a band. I found out that you can do a lot with an acoustic guitar since I’ve played solo for about two years, but when it gets to entertaining 5.000 people, you need to be dynamic and loud. I’m so excited to perform with my band today and show the crowd that I can do more than back then.
You’ve been on tour with the one and only Ed Sheeran. Do you desire a similar career?
You’re rubbing salt in the wound there (laughs). No, but it’s really weird. He’s a character from my childhood in a small town in Eastern-England. I thought he was always an incredible talent, but you never think — no matter who it is — that you’re talking to the biggest star in the world. As far as my own career goes, it’s a little bit like playing Monopoly. It’s really fun to be playing the game when you have all the houses, so you play as big as you can because when it’s over, you get dull…
