Why this name?
My parents chose it before I was born.
Do you play live?
I play live all over LA.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Certainly it makes every artist with a recording accessible.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
If they wanted me I believe I would sign. The business is such right now that they're no longer wasting dollars by promoting some roster bands heavily while others get nothing. If they sign you they're gonna promote you and that's what it takes to sell records.
Your influences?
Beatles, REM, Dave Matthews, Peter Gabriel, Thomas Dolby, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Yes, The Who, The Stones, Sting, Allman Bros., Incubus, Sugar Ray, Steely Dan, many, many, many more...
Favorite spot?
Central Park in New York City
Equipment used:
