You could kind of say that by being in this band, I'm married to two men. I have to trust them implicitly or this project simply will not work. The three of us fight and have our moments of not getting our way... we huff and we puff but in the end, we collectively decide what is best for our project and THAT'S what we end up doing.
A few days ago it came to my attention that a fellow HuffPo writer named Ilene Angel had written a very flattering review of Blue Sky Riders. In the post, she asked me the questions she wished she'd have asked me backstage. I figured it might be fun and informative to print her questions here, with my answers, too.
I remember the day I quit waitressing. I loved that restaurant because it was run by management who cared about their employees. I told my boss, "I'm really excited about being a professional songwriter but I want you to know that I'm holding on to my waitress uniform, just in case things don't work out." And what he said, I'll never forget.
