Favourite moment in the Saddle
I had to fill in last minute on vocals for a few numbers at the Coldplay Saddle. I remember when I was in the middle of 'Warning Sign' being so overwhelmed with what I was hearing and experiencing that I nearly burst into tears. Being a part of the Saddle is just so, so magical. So many amazing people in the same room, working together to create something so, so special. I get chills just thinking back on it.
