Military mum! Sneaky Sound System front-woman Connie Mitchell reveals how she keeps her two children in check on the road …as she admits her work-life balance has been ‘pretty cruisey so far’
Her band, Sneaky Sound System, have been delivering dance-floor anthems for more than a decade.
And despite juggling world-wide tours and recording sessions with Kanye West with raising two children, front-woman Connie Mitchell still believes she’s nailing her work-life balance.
Talking on The Project on Sunday night, the 41-year-old singer, whose also a mum-of-two, said although she hasn’t nailed the balancing act, it’s been ‘pretty cruisey so far.’

When asked how she managed to keep her two young Iggy Ajax, 2, and nine-month old Cece Paloma, children, aged two and nine months, the singer slammed her fist down on the table and quipped: ‘Oh, military’.
And while, the singer said she had managed to master her work-life balance, when it came to becoming a strict mother, she also tried to keep things in fair proportion.
‘Listen, I’m a good balance of strict when you need to be strict like, “seven o’clock is when you go to bed and you’re having dinner at five o’clock”,’ she said.
All about balance: Speaking on The Project, Connie said: ‘Listen, I’m a good balance of strict when you need to be strict like, “seven o’clock is when you go to bed and you’re having dinner at five o’clock”‘
‘But, I think you can also have a little fun like you know they can play as much as they wanna play and you know there’s a bit of leeway there.’
The bubbly singer also said that she had been recently practicing her angry voice, admitting to the panel that it ‘takes a lot of practice’.
‘I was very terrified,’ co-host Tommy Little said.

While the singer gushed about being a mother, she said that she will never stop working.
Talking with Kate Waterhouse in her Date with Kate column in 2016, Connie said that she planned to ‘get straight back out’ on stage after welcoming her first child, Iggy.
The artist reasoned: ‘I’m responsible for my own income and if I want to buy something nice, I can’.
