There's so much music in Austin, and it's all so different.
For a black male, the sound of the blues is pre-Civil Rights. It's oppression.
I failed public speaking in grade school, 'cause I was so nervous and scared.
My mom always told me I should have a Plan B. I said that if I'm not going to play guitar I'm going to play drums. And if I'm not going to play drums, I'm going to play bass. I always just wanted to play music. I was completely obsessed.
The blues is the foundation for a lot of things. Things have branched off. It's cool how music grows, but the foundation is always there. It's not going anywhere. The blues is always going to be relevant.
I don't think anything can touch the expressive range of the guitar.
I'm somewhat of a hoarder. I keep everything.
I've been called 'musically schizophrenic,' and some people think that's a cool thing.
I am the type of artist where you can't tell me anything. I have always been that way. I am right. I don't need any input.
There's nothing like a music festival. People are ready to have a good time. I don't think anyone comes to a festival going, 'I'm gonna be a complete bummer today.'
When I got my first guitar, I played along with everything I heard that had guitar in it, like the Ramones, Nirvana and Sublime, as well as whatever hip-hop and R&B stuff was on the radio.
You know, I've never done karaoke, ever. It makes me nervous - I think it's the lack of the guitar and just a microphone.
I never expected to be approached for an ad campaign.
I'm obsessed with fuzz pedals.
Most of my songs start out as being very aggressive and guitar-driven.
