Describe your sound in 3 words
Hmm… like the sound of my record? My production? Warm.Fat.Old.
Tell us a few things about your new work ‘The Angels Album’. What is the main idea behind it?
Well, it’s sort of the culmination… and the beginning. It’s the culmination of a life obsessed with music, all leading to the moment when you find the truest, highest expression of your art. And then, it’s the beginning, because once you find that, you just want to see how much of it the Muse will give you.
Which song (if any) of the album reflects you the most and why?
When you have children, they each reflect you in different ways. I’d like to just go with the proud parent response, I love all my kids equally. But in this moment… Angels.
Rugs. Tapestries. Birds. Teapots. People who pioneer things… expand things… stay true to something they love… detail oriented people. Flowers.
What would you change in the music industry?
What music industry… ? For me, that’s two things, music and industry. What would I change about industry? Hm. Support small businesses. And music… I like that question a lot, hmm. I could see peoples’ relationship to music being so much more satisfying if they were to practice the way I’ve been told it was… That our parents and their parents used to sit and listen to music and not do anything else… I like the idea of a resurgence of that, of more full focus listening.
Which book should we read while listening to your music?
Ha! Well like I was saying… but if I had to choose something, I’d say pick something heavily illustrated.
What is the one habit/thing you cannot live without?
