When I made my way across childhood to the tinny AM radio, it was dark. Lights out. I listened intently. More intently than I ever had before. Something was speaking to my unformed-ness like a long lost friend. Something that I had never met but forgotten nonetheless. I was ‘realizing’ that music was ‘different’ from other things in life.
I think, because I'm an artist, part of my job is to be a barometer, an antenna. It's in the air and it resonates with a lot of people to lighten up.

So many of my friends are still trying to get record deals, and I’ve had one for 10 years now, where my only goal is to make the best music I can make. I’ve been very lucky. I have great faith that I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be, and whatever happens is going to be absolutely right for me.
Since the music industry cracked and fell apart, gasping for the cash flow it had come to expect, much re-thinking has been the order of the day. It is a fine time to be a musician. Like walking through Sodom and Gomorrah while it is still smoking, on your way to the next gig.
