Sexiest Artist

Lisa Dewey of Lisa Dewey and the Lotus Life

Why does the singer always seem to be the sexiest member of the band? Is it because they're the center of attention?

I don't know. I think my drummer's pretty sexy. All the girls always come up to him afterwards going, "Hiiiii."

Well, but you must get your share of attention. Do you think about sex appeal when you're performing, like your rock-star aura?

I think that just comes with the territory. If you're a performer and you've been doing it for years, you just sort of ... I don't know. When I perform, even my best friends are like, 'Dude, when you're singing, you're on fire.' It's almost like a trance--but not. It's hard to explain.

What do you find sexy?

People are sexy to me when they're just being themselves. It's not a certain style or anything. A person who's not trying to be sexy is sexy to me. People who try--it feels contrived. Maturity is sexy to me. Women or men who have come to know themselves, in like their 30s. There's something sexy about people who are happy.

What's the best Valentine's Day present you've ever gotten?

Oh, geez, the best present was from my mom: a box of chocolates. All my relationships are always bad on Valentine's Day.

What are you doing this year?

I'm going to Big Lil's Cabaret. It's a variety show for TV. Channel 36 is going to be airing the episodes. They have local bands every Thursday, like Saturday Night Live. Except it's raunchy.
