Plumb has had numerous hits on the Christian, Dance, and Mainstream charts. She's here Wednesday night on her national "Need You Now" tour! Mei asked her a few questions so we could get to know her better!
Where was the first your first show?
ORLANDO, FLORIDA AT A RODEO ARENA...CALLED 'GAS FEST'...AT LEAST THAT' WHAT I THINK IT WAS CALLED. I WORE LIME GREEN PANTS AND SHIRT WITH A TRANSPARENT BLUE PLASTIC JACKET AND CRAZY SUNGLASSES...OF WHICH I STILL HAVE IN A BOX SENTIMENTALLY.
What artist/ band would you say you are most influenced by?
THAT'S A HARD Q. I'M INFLUENCED BY NEW AND INNOVATIVE THINGS AS WELL AS CLASSIC THINGS THAT STAND THE TEST OF TIME. I WAS HUGE INTO THE CURE IN HIGH SCHOOL, OF WHOM WERE AHEAD OF THEIR TIME...BUT EARLY STAGES OF PLUMB -EVEN TIL NOW- I LOVE GARBAGE AND POE, ALANIS, THE CURE , SUZANNE VEGA, AND U2. MORE RECENTLY, FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE, AND SOME EDM ARTISTS - AS WELL AS PRAISE AND WORSHIP...I HAVE A PRETTY VAST RANGE OF THINGS I LIKE...MY MOST RECENT ALBUM PURCHASES WERE THE KILLERS, IMAGINE DRAGONS, DAVID GUETTA, FLORENCE AND PHIL WICKUM...I LOVE THE HEART OF CHRISTIAN MUSIC AND THE ARTISTS BEHIND THE SONGS...LIKE MATT MAHER ,AUDREY ASSAD, ANDMIKE D FROM 10TH AVE NORTH, JUST TO NAME A FEW...
Favorite Foods: BLACK LICORICE...IS THAT A FOOD?
