In terms of music, which artists have influenced you?
Misty Miller: Lots of artists for the 2nd album. But it’s really hard to think of (specific) artists because I don’t really listen to artists and think ‘Yeah, that’s it.’ I just have music on and I pick things from it.
I’d typically say Billie Holiday and Rockabilly but I think that’s just the music I listen to. I don’t have one aspiring artist.
You’ve been in the Burberry adverts, how did that come about?
MM: That was through you (nods and smiles towards Anthony Gordon, her agent). I think I was one of the first they did.
Anthony Gordon: They put out an announcement looking for acts for a new platform that Christopher Bailey was doing. We submitted Misty and they came right back and said ‘Yeah, we’d love to have her’. She was one of the first they’d ever used. She’s like a pioneer for Burberry (laughs).
