Jamie Lidell

Q: Do you write your songs on a piano?

A: No, I write it all with my voice ...

Q: With no accompaniment from anything else? You just make up melody lines?

A: Yeah. I sing the bass, then sing it all.

Q: So the demo versions of your songs are basically a cappellas?

A: Essentially, yeah.

Q: Are they worth listening to, or are they just sketches?

A: Well, this album ... I was using a voice recorder, singing into the phone.

Q: Singing into it like a psychiatrist takes notes?

A: Yeah, exactly. "Note to self, this could be a worthy song."

With those glasses and that stubble, he looks like Zachary Quinto (from American Horror Story and Heroes).
