Franny Fox

(R&B singer/songwriter married to Paul Fox. Wrote ’Don’t Look Any Further’, covered by The Kane Gang and M-People. Helped Björk with translations of lyrics.)

I love her lyrical approach. I don’t know exactly how she goes about it, but it’s very raw, emotional and honest, and says exactly what’s going on in her head. She did most of the work, she knew what she wanted to say, I made it flow better in English. It’s like a painting, how she feels about a certain situation and her perspective on it, which, if you know Björk, is only how she could see it, which is what makes it unique. She turns everything into a positive, for herself, and to grow from. I really like her, in case you couldn’t tell. She’s brilliant, life-loving and woman-child."
