Kerenza Evans

Writer

Personal Brief

Kerenza devours words. Not literally (apart from that incident back in '89) but more in the style of a modern-day Matilda. Her favourite books include The Secret History, To Kill a Mockingbird and My Family and Other Animals and The Strand bookstore in Manhattan is her literay catnip.

She has interviewed writers, actors and musicians and written reviews of a number of events including West End musicals, independent theatre, London's burlesque and art scene and political forums. She spent most of 2014 out of the country, camping in Africa, hiking in Japan, swimming through Australia and dancing in Cuba. Now back in London, she is relishing the opportunity to start reviewing London's thriving culture scene once again.

Please contact Kerenza if you'd like your event to be listed and/or reviewed and she will get back to you asap.

Artists on your radar, shout them out!

My music tastes are unabashedly rooted in the past and my heart belongs to the dulcet stylings of Fleetwood Mac, The Stones and Creedence Clewarwater Revival.

That said, I am always willing to be proved wrong and would love to review some gigs for upcoming London artists!

 

Which is your number one location - and what's it best for?

London-wise, I love a little cafe called Drink, Shop & Do at King's Cross. I often write here by day when it's a charming little cafe and then enjoy meeting friends at night when it morphs into a lively bar. Bring a sleeping bag and you could basically live here*.

*The managers probably won't appreciate me suggesting this.

'Getting creative', what's it all about?

Snapping out of your routine. Doing something enriching each day, no matter how small. Learning from and listening to the people around you.  Everyone and everything can inspire acts of creativity.

Your Life, Right Now - what's the soundtrack?

Fleetwood Mac, Vonda Shepard, The Rolling Stones, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Lenka, The Band Perry, Kacey Musgraves, Bruce Springsteen, Sam Cooke, The Beatles, David Bowie, The Baseballs, Kiss.

What is your idea of a jolly good time?

Twistin' The Night Away

What happened the last time you were a complete disgrace?

Once, when home alone, I drunk a little too much wine, put on the Ghostbusters theme tune and leapt about the room asking various household objects who they were going to call. Since this incident, I seldom drink alone.
