is a Credible Likeable Superstar Role Model. Taking time out from her work as a palaeontologist, Bennett has released two songs to date: debut single Apathy
and a follow-up, Animal Kingdom
Catherine Bennett isn’t quite real, though: she’s the creation of a nine-year-old girl called Taylor and played by Taylor’s aunt, performance artist Bryony Kimmings
In her role as Bennet's manager, Taylor is responsible for the artist's look, musical direction–"songs sung by Lily Allen, written by the B-52s and produced by Gorillaz"–lyrics and biography (Ms. Bennett loves tuna pasta, goes out with a proofreader from Sri Lanka called Matthew, and grows veg on her allotment
with help from best friend Chelsea, a midwife).
Fans include Yoko Ono, who invited Taylor to introduce her project
during a session on activism at Meltdown
Via Woman’s Hour
, which ran a ten minute interview with Taylor and Kimmings
