"you can sing for millions of people in your career, or
maybe just one
you can sell millions of records or none at all
you can win awards or never win a damn thing
it doesn't really matter
if you play music with passion and
love and honesty
then it will nourish your soul
heal your wounds
make your life worth living
whether you make millions or
just make a living
you will have made a difference
music is its own reward"
"I'm inspired by beauty,whether it be nature, being outside, my time alone, love...I'm
inspired by very simple things...the things I consider to be the essentials of a life"
"If you're singin' and enjoying the sound, putting sound into what once was the silence and making beautiful joyful
noise...and then when you open your eyes people are also diggin' it...I'm in!"
