What do you dislike about making music and what do you love about it?
I love losing hours to writing and mixing. I dislike having to interrupt that process to do things like eat and sleep.
What goes on in your head when you’re on stage?
Constantly fearing the next point in the set where I have to make banter to fill dead space from tuning guitars.
What do you get most obsessive about when you’re making music?
Lyrics. Everything else comes somewhat easy but I just can’t let lyrics go.
What’s a quote that made you do something?
“I don’t think about technique. The ideas dictate everything. You have to be true to that or you’re dead” – David Lynch
I don’t really have a good memory for quotes but I always liked this one. It made me less insecure about not being the most technically proficient with playing, writing, mixing, so long as I’m at a place where feel like I can realise my ideas and am happy with the results.
What record do you think you’ve listened to the most times in your life?
Elliott Smith – Either/Or
