Q & A with Justine Clarke
By Author, Title 04 Nov 2018
Before she arrives in Perth with her Justine Clarke Silly Songs Tour 2018, we asked the star of the show a few questions about sing-alongs, her creative process and life as a children’s entertainer and mother.
What’s your favourite song to sing with your children?
My kids and I all love singing along to Khalid’s album. My kids are all older now and have their own tastes but we recently all travelled to Splendour in The Grass and sang along to Khalid all the way!
What does a day in your life look like?
Lunches, ironing, homework, reading and yelling “teeth, socks, shoes, bag!” a lot. Taking the dog for a walk, running, admin, practice, writing, wasting time on social media!
What is your creative process for creating new material?
I like to remind myself of the wonder of being a child. Remembering that everything is new and interesting and reminding myself that kids are capable and curious creatures who know a good song or story when they hear one!
Are you working on any new musical projects?
I have a few projects I’m working on at the moment. They are still in early stages but very exciting!
Where would we find you on your day off?
At a footy field or a netball court watching my kids play.
What’s your #1 parenting-hack?
What are your fans like?
They are three or four years old and they are lovely, kind and very surprised to see me.
What made you want to be a children’s entertainer?
I didn’t know I would be one! I just enjoy making music and I love making music the whole family can enjoy together.
