I’m not religious, but I am spiritual and I am creating my own practice.
Whatever people are doing, they’re probably going to be doing it five years from now. You have your banker, your general store runner, the principal of the school, and things of that sort. It’s nice to see that, and to get old with other people.
I like performing live more than anything. I get a little bit afraid in the studio.
I dont marry bandmates just to go marrying bandmates.
I’m grateful that music has been a place where I’ve found freedom.
I’ve always kind of been in the middle of every room, trying to get people together, no matter what color they were.
Even though I like looking good – don’t get me wrong – but if I don’t want to, I don’t have to.
I mean, roots musicians – we can get old, you know? We can get up there and wear overalls and deliver the songs, we don’t have to look any certain way.
Amalgamation is a good word that I like to use – musically and in every way.
I must stay true to myself and take my own path all the way.
I create my own reality. And I’m not the only one. My reality is becoming more prominent.
When I talk about music in Memphis, it’s a place you can go if you are a beginning artist or anywhere in your career, and you can incubate.
