Why did you choose to submit this work to The 10th IMA’s? i thought it was worthy &, well, extremely independent.

Did you use any unusual effects or instruments in this recording? My cat had a bell on his collar- its’ sound shows up throughout the project as i recorded at home.

Were there any happy accidents while in the studio, or did everything go as planned? Recording is always an accident. I use & edit the accidents into a whole accident.

Any close calls or mishaps while on tour? I once fell to the floor on stage but landed so the guitar was held up so that i wouldn’t crush it

Do you have any rituals before you go on stage? To continue breathing…

Should music be free? It already is free – and the writers/artists should be paid for their works
so they can live & raise a family if they choose to (duh)

How has digital affected your career? It has made an audio standard (red book) that has not broadened in 25 years or more – yet we persist in the face of such tyranny.

Are digital singles vs. full albums the future of music? I hope not.

Finish this sentence: The music industry is… complicated.
