Faith’s music has been described as a cross between Lana del Rey and Florence + the Machine. Her soulful ballads are part of a British soul revival led by by Adele. Her music has been very popular in Britain and it’s easy to see why Faith is on the rise in the States. Miss A asked her some questions before her eagerly awaited US tour.

Q: A lot of singers from Britain like Adele are soul singers. Why do you think there is a soul revival?

A: I don’t think it’s a revival. I think the world is finally listening to what I’ve been listening to. I think it’s just bravery.

Q: How would you describe  your music?

A: My music is just honest. It’s about what’s closest to me. It’s an honest description of who I am. It’s very personal.

Q: Not only are you a great singer, but you’re very fashionable. Were you inspired by fashion icons of the past?

A: Yes, I’m inspired by Jackie O, women like that. I love ’40s, ’60s style that celebrates my body, a curvy body. The current fashion is too androgynous.

Q:  Who are your favorite designers?

A: Dolce and Gabbana.
