Very first concert you attended and a memory from it.
It was Bob Dylan in Sun City with my dad. Proud to say that!

If you could have any musician (dead or alive) as a mentor, who would it be?
Probably Thom Yorke, if only!

Very first concert you played and a memory from it.
It was my middle school’s talent show, I played one of the first songs I wrote solo and then my band played “The Taste of Ink” by The Used, we all wore Converse shoes and neckties.

Artist you would most like to collaborate with or have produce your music?
Definitely Thom Yorke again.

Personal truth that fans would be surprised to know about you.
I don’t know if they would be surprised but, I have a silly saying that I go by, and its “you can’t be late if you’re early.”

How do you spend a typical day when you’re not touring or busy recording?
Usually starts with making a pot of coffee, then (currently) maybe watch some baseball, and then go into my music room and try writing or working on something. I try to be as productive as I can!

One artist or album you could never get tired of listening to?
Pedro the LionControl or RadioheadIn Rainbows

Earliest music-related memory you have?
I remember being on the back porch and my dad showing me how to play an E minor and A chord on this little Stella guitar we had. I think I was maybe six or seven.

Nicest thing a fan has ever said, or given, to you?
I met this really nice guy who saw me once in Bisbee, and he lived around there, and then he came to a show all the way in Phoenix about a year later. I felt pretty special and humbled by that.

Interesting fact about your newest release.
Umm, I am just trying to not do the same thing over and over, I think it will be pretty different!

Xperience you will never forget.
Hearing one of my songs on the radio, it happened when I was living in Seattle on my way home from work, and it was crazy, beyond words.
