The Soul Kings - 20 Soulful Questions

Benjamin Woman1. What was your first big break?
Thankfully nothing too big, just my little toe on my left foot playing soccer. The flyboy did trip over my leg playing 5’s once and we spent a couple of hours in A&E…bit of a drag.

2. Career highlights to date?
Edinburgh Hogmanay Party in Princes St Gardens, 80,000 fans going nuts. Might have had something to do with Culture Club and Ms Dynamite but I like to think it was due to the SoulKings groove.

Lou Reed – Walk on the Wild Side
It has great groove, great feel, sensitivity, its edgy it has everything.
