Occupation: Musician and account manager at i-on magazine.

What sort of pupil were you? Naughty but nice.

Were your school days the best days of your life? Primary school was; high school was hell. Being so small - and, believe it or not, quite shy - I got bullied, so I wouldn’t go back to school if you paid me.

What has been your most unusual job? Tribute act singer covering Britney Spears, Kylie, Steps and S Club 7.

My biggest achievement so far has been... Being in a job I love, moving in with the man I love and playing music as much as I can with mates I love. Or, playing at T In The Park twice in one weekend to two packed tents. Or, being flown to Dubai to play on Christmas Day and getting the five-star treatment.

My worst moment ever was... Falling over a monitor on stage in front of 500 people.

Three words that sum up my personality are... Loyal, feisty and confident.

Three places in Edinburgh I could not live without are... My lovely flat, my best mate Eddie Miller’s house, and Cabaret Voltaire.

Which TV show do you never miss? Boardwalk Empire or the news - I like to know what is going on.

If you could bring one show to Edinburgh what would it be? That’s a tough one. I saw Stevie Wonder in London last year. I’d like him to come to Edinburgh so my sister could see him, too.

Jenny Dryden is part of Edinburgh funk band James Brown Is Annie, who support the Average White Band at Glasgow’s O2 tomorrow night
