My Dream Rider

  1. I am probably the most G rated musician, so can I please say a teapot of throat coat tea and honey?? I am a tea addict, and always love to have it on hand before/during/after performing
  2. To counteract the last item, I would also love 1 whisky on the rocks to have after the show/tea
  3. I feel bad requesting so many things…can I please have a masseuse? I have a lot of tension in my neck
  4. Daniel Radcliffe to recite Harry Potter to me before I go on stage – that would calm my nerves
  5. A spa – it would be nice to sit in it for a while to relax before the gig
  6. A silk robe and some fluffy slippers to don after the spa
  7. A leatherbound journal and fountain pen to jot down the set list and talking points
  8. A professional vocal coach (could ask Beyonce) to help me warm up my voice before the show
  9. A professional hair and make up artist so I don’t have to try and apply it myself with my 1 year old trying to apply my mascara
  10. A guitar tech (I’m thinking John Mayer) to restring my guitar and also lend me one of his perhaps – thank you!
