Every night is different, a ball of thread that unrolls differently.
I'd probably be famous now if I wasn't such a good waitress.
Music is all about training in harmony, training to understand and use musical energy for our greater pleasure by attuning to the natural laws of the universe.
Music is gathering. Taking our scattered thoughts and senses and coalescing us back into our core. Music is powerful. The first few chords can change us where no self-help books can.
I felt old when I was young and I feel younger now. Maybe that's a trick of my mind, but I'm springier and lighter.
It takes forever if you go by inertia.
Ultimately you understand there is order in the universe, even if there is no order in your immediate circumstances.
You can't chop down a symmetry
I found it stimulating to study the sciences. It was a side of understanding the universe that I hadn't been exposed to.
If you ask someone if they like music, they look at you strangely. It seems to be a universal given. Like asking someone if they like breathing. It is like breathing. Or air, rather. Flowing without and within. A matrix within which our lives are set. The setting for the tableware of our beings.
I hear pounding feet in the streets below
And the women crying and the children know
That there's something wrong
And it's hard to believe that love will prevail
Oh it won't rain all the time
The sky won't fall forever
And though the night seems long
Your tears won't fall forever
It's all about consistency, and what makes a child or a dog secure: order, clarity - all those things.
I'm not a household word. The climate for original music is always a bit difficult.
As far as I understand, the Second Coming is already here. It's a consciousness. It is not someone who is going to arrive and land in a clearing in the forest. The Hell that they talk of is going to be people creating their own unhappiness, a Hell on Earth.
Acceptable food rots while we are chased from bins behind restaurants, chased from sleeping on the street, chased from relieving ourselves unless we pay for food or gas, until finally we are so hungry, sleepless, smelly, constipated and beaten-down that we simply die of lack of will to live.
Though the night seems long, you're tears won't fall forever.
I'd like to see the Second Coming in every one of us. That we all be Jesus. That we all embody that consciousness.
So many of my friends are still trying to get record deals, and I've had one for 10 years now, where my only goal is to make the best music I can make. I've been very lucky. I have great faith that I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be, and whatever happens is going to be absolutely right for me.
I try to make my music have the quiet spaces of folk, the intimacy, and the energy of rock.
Harmony is when the sum is greater than the parts. A happy exaggeration.
I think, because I'm an artist, part of my job is to be a barometer, an antenna. It's in the air and it resonates with a lot of people to lighten up.
I am a musician. I didn't know I would be so when I was young. I do know that I have always heard music in my head that I wasn't hearing somewhere else and I 'needed' this music. And obedient to the laws of nature, I created into this vacuum.
I was raised on pop music. Anything classical ran together in a complicated blur.
I tour alone. There's no sound check, no back up. I stay with the hosts I am in a family home and it's really nourishing. I just have to remember after the show not to run out into the living room in my pyjamas. Every day, it's a new relationship being built. It's odd and wonderful.
I brought a Border Collie back home to Vancouver from Wales - where some of my ancestors are from - and needed to challenge him in other ways than just being my pet. So I investigated sheep herding and took a few lessons, and decided I was probably learning more than my dog!
