The 5-minute Interview: Jules Knight, Musician

'48 hours after our band met we had a record deal'

Jules Knight, 26, is a quarter of Blake. Formed on Facebook a year ago, the band won Album of the Year at the Classical Brits.

If I weren't talking to you right now I'd be...

On a train to Norfolk to see my dad.

A phrase I use too often ...

"To be frank".

The most surprising thing that happened to me was ...

Getting a record deal 48 hours after Blake meeting one another.

I wish people would take more notice of ...

Darfur's massive crisis.

A common misperception of me is ...

I'm hard-nosed. I'm actually very sensitive.

I am not a politician but ...

I worked in the Commons for an MP, Nigel Evans.

I'm good at ...

Everything creative: acting, singing, creative writing.

I'm very bad at ...

Science and maths, all that stuff.

The ideal night out is ...

An Italian meal with lots of champagne and on to clubbing at somewhere like Fabric.

In moments of weakness I ...

Lose my temper. But I'm usually a very cool person.

You know me as a singer but in truer life I'd have been ...

An actor. I enjoyed film acting the most.

In a nutshell, my philosophy is this ...

If you really want something you can achieve it, but you have to work hard for it.
