Take 5: Z Berg of Phases

We all love to know what inspires our favorite stars and we want to know what – or who– is behind our favorite lyrics. But why is every interview so serious all the damn time? ‘Take 5′ is a regular feature on Listen! It’s Vetrano that gives readers insight into some of the lighter things in your favorite stars’ lives. And next up in the ‘Take 5′ hot seat, Z Berg from Phases.

If you haven’t read my interview with the whole band, you can do that here. And be sure to check out Phases’ debut single “I’m In Love With My Life” from their new record, out now. But first, throw your feet on your desk and Take 5 with Phases’ frontwoman Z Berg below.

(Fans in Nashville: I’ve got two tickets to see them perform with LIGHTS and The Mowgli’s next month to giveaway. Enter to win tickets now here.)

Take 5 with Z Berg (from Phases)

1. How would you describe your personal style in one word?


2. If you were cast on one of the season’s of the “Real Housewives” franchise, what would your opening tagline be?

I’ve never seen it! Do they have taglines? How bout… “I would like to apologize in advance.”

3. Do you prefer being on stage or in the studio?

I love them both in different ways for sure, but I suppose nothing can compare to the ineffable high of being on stage.

4. Who’s your biggest music influence?

John Lennon, Nico, Dusty Springfield, Diana Ross, Fiona Apple, Keith Richards, Michael Jackson, Chopin, Satie, Bob Dylan, Debbie Harry, the members of Phases.

5. What’s your go-to karaoke song?

Fiona apple’s “Criminal”
