There is a part of me that feels this weird responsibility to be cheerful and excited and encouraging all of the time when I talk about my music life. I almost feel guilty for having other feelings, for experiencing the shitty bits of being a creative being. But the truth is that all your favorite sad songs were written because of these feelings. So, maybe this is good, maybe this means I still have things to write about, maybe this means I am exactly where I am supposed to be…so I can write a couple more of your favorite sad songs.
Being a musician, a writer, a songwriter, means you have to be horribly honest with yourself when your instincts tell you to turn around and run for the hills. It is not always pretty…actually most times it is not very pretty, but it’s real.
