After serving as a council guest last season, you are now back as a permanent council member. How important is the show to you personally?
Rhea Garvey: I like the show. Besides Ruth, this is more fun! She’s crazy to find out who’s behind it before the mask falls off. I think my job is to stand by her side with a bucket of water and cool her down at a good time if she gets more hot (laughs).
Which is the biggest surprise unmasking of all seasons so far?
Garvey: The biggest surprise for me was Stephanie Heinzman. I know her well, her voice is so unique, I was sure I would recognize her immediately even with a mask on my head. Unfortunately, they were the first to take off the mask in the second season. It showed me that not everyone reveals the cards immediately, which made the show even more intense for me.
Which mask are you fundamentally wrong with?
Garvey: As a council guest on the third season, I made a big mistake with Vicky Leandros: I realized there was more to an actress than a singer under the mask. I was so wrong! Sometimes typing in an ess team is as hard as singing under a mask. This time I was determined to be a little better at unleashing the stars.
You have to re-create the mood in the studio without the audience. How do you do that, and how often do you not see the audience?
Garvey: I think our job as an advisory team is to replace the audience for stars under masks. Because of us, stage fright gives them everything on stage. I do not hold back my emotions and do not give positive feedback directly to the players. Ruth and I are crazy to fill the studio with mood. It does not matter if we dance, cry or praise. A full studio is not a substitute for an audience, but we try our best to bring the incredibly great performances and atmosphere of the studio to the audience in front of the screens.
Which year do you most expect?
Garvey: Flamingo looks very tense and exciting. But I have a weird feeling that Unicorn is going to be my enemy this season. Unfortunately, unicorns make me feel like a dull rabbit. I’m sure it has something to do with my childhood, I don’t know exactly how …
Monstronot was received differently by fans, and was called the Cheap Copy of the Monster. What is your opinion about the criticism?
Garvey: All the masks I’ve seen on this show are very impressive, and I’m sure Monstronot won’t disappoint us. I believe this charming alien pink has a place in every heart (laughs).
Is it more difficult or easier for you to identify celebrities as a musician?
Garvey: The difficulty is that even if someone sings like a professional musician, they don’t have to be a professional singer. It confuses and makes me uncomfortable. It helps me to compare the singer to the professional stars who have already revealed. This is because masks sometimes obscure the true aesthetic qualities of the stars. On the show, I learned to rely on my deepest instincts. I wasn’t 100% successful at it, but it helps keep my sanity (laughs).
How difficult is it for you at Pandemic to remain inspiring and creative as a musician?
Garvey: My wife Joseph and I started an online show: Our “Yellow Jacket Session” runs almost every Thursday evening on our YouTube channel. I play songs, we talk about so many different things, we laugh so much. The excellent response from the fans prompted us to continue the show. At a time when we crawled into a hole and waited for everything to be done, we decided to be creative and bring a lot of fans to LockDome Home Entertainment, which was great. I have to thank my wife very much for that. She hits me in the buttocks as the wheels fall off the car. She’s the backbone of the show, and I’m the band.
Can you even plan your 2021 year during this indefinite period?
Garvey: I fear 2021 will be long and intense until 2020 – but with the hope that the epidemic will end. I hope we all keep our heads up and stay physically and mentally healthy. My father always told me: The last mile is long. We have all achieved so much together. We should be proud of that. These times are hard for everyone, and it’s important to look ahead: to a time when only the stars on the “Masked Singer” stage wear masks.
