Time now for a new feature. It’s something I’ve been thinking about for ages, but never quite getting round to. Until now. The idea’s pretty simple. I ask an artist seven questions about seven songs.  The first one today comes from Alessi’s Ark. As you can see she’s a woman of fine taste.

1. A song that’s been in your head today?

You Send Me by Sam Cooke.

2. A song you love playing live

A Man and his Dream
by Neva Dinova or a new song, called Pinewoods.

3. Shuffle your ipod – what’s the first song that comes up?

You & Your Sister by Chris Bell

4. A song you wish you had written

There are lots of amazing ones. Me and My Woman by Roy Harper never, ever fails to amaze me.

5. Your guiltiest pleasure?

I don’t really feel that guilty about it but i used to really like watching that show ‘Gladiators’ - i liked the referee fellow who had all those whistles!

6. A song off your current favourite album

There are two! Tahiti by Magic Magic off of their self-titled record and Atlantis by The Whispertown 2000 off off Swim

7. Tell us about a track from your album

Over the Hill is a song about two friends that are separated by a great distance and an idea to bring them together is to make an embroidery for them both to live in.

Notes from the Treehouse
, the debut album from Alessi’s Ark (which includes Over the Hill) will be out on Virgin in late March. She’ll be playing three dates in London this week - Brixton Windmill tomorrow night, The Macbeth on Thursday and the Barfly on Friday. Then she joins Mumford and Sons for a tour of the southern half of England.

Oh, and let me know what you think about Seven Songs. I’m open to suggestions y’know…
