YAKKITY YAK So MUCH energy – you must have to work out as for a triathlon before telling like that! Your vocal production is really impressive and endearingly kooky – your range is wide and it is quite a skill to pull off growls like that! Your passion and enthusiasm is hard to resist- even though we Aussies are generally pretty low-key types. I find your work very inspiring. Jenni Cargill (Australia)
