1: What artist would you most love to work with?
I'd love to sing harmony for Mary Chapin Carpenter, or back up Colin Meloy, solo or band.
2: What instrument brings you the most joy?
Depends on who's playing it. I can tell you what it's not: sax, clarinet, harmonica, violin, tuba ... Bass can be sexy, and so can drums. I do like the rhythm section.
3: What was the worst advice?
Worst? That I shouldn't ask to be paid because the gig would be GREAT exposure.
4: What was your first concert?
The first one I attended was John Denver at the Anaheim Convention Center. I was in 4th grade. I knew the words to all the songs because his 8-track was our family's favorite, and my dad and I sang from the John Denver songbook almost every night.
5: What/where is the best road food?
The local organic grocery. Hands-down. When I fly in, my first stop after I get the rental car is Whole Foods, or someplace similar. Easiest way to stay healthy on the road is to keep it lean and clean and give your body the best fuel you can find.
6: What’s the best music advice you ever got?
Came from John Jennings, guitarist for Mary Chapin Carpenter and my co-producer on FLOWER OF AVALON. We were discussing stage-fright and he told me, "Why get nervous? You can't get better in the next five minutes anyway. Go rock what you've got."
7: Who is your most surprising inspiration?
There are two, and they are so deep as to be nearly transparent, but: Rush and Bach. And I'm sure this answer will change.
