THREE THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT EZRA

What's On (Dubai) - - 19 THINGS TO LOOK FORWARD TO IN 2019 -

1. HE HAS WRITER’S BLOCK

“I’d set the alarm, wake up, go down­stairs to write, noth­ing would come, then I’d just do point­less [stuff]. I’d clean the house. Ev­ery sin­gle day. I’d make up things to do.”

2. EZRA STAYED IN AN AIRBNB IN SPAIN OWNED BY A WO­MAN NAMED TA­MARA

“Then one day, she asked if I was on Spo­tify. I ac­tu­ally had to help her spell Ge­orge Ezra. That would have been fine, but then she saw that Bu­dapest had some­thing like 300 mil­lion plays. She looked at me as if to say, ‘What the what?!’”

3. HE FOUND HIS VOICE AF­TER LIS­TEN­ING TO LEAD BELLY

“On the back of the record, it said ‘his voice was so big, you had to turn your record player down.’ I liked the idea of singing with a big voice, so I tried it, and I could.”
