I just love music, and I absorbed what I love.
I must stay true to myself and take my own path all the way.
My music confuses people because they think I will sound a certain way because I look a certain way with the dreads.
I am a boring loner. I enjoy Friday nights at home in my rocking chair with no arms, rocking and relaxing. It's not uncommon for Netflix to be involved. Records are a possibility, but most of it is spent in silence.
I don't care if you're Muslim or Christian or Buddhist or whatever your religion is, when you listen to a spiritual song and you really open your heart, you can feel it. You can feel the message of it. Just a simple story.
Amalgamation is a good word that I like to use - musically and in every way.
As I try to get around with a guitar, a banjo and a suitcase of high heels and dresses, I treasure that little ukulele.
I am always excited about playing in front of live audiences because I really enjoy it, for the most part.
I don't marry bandmates just to go marrying bandmates.
I like performing live more than anything. I get a little bit afraid in the studio.
I met PJ Harvey when I was in England, and the first thing I want to do when I meet a songwriter I admire is to ask them how do they receive songs.
I try to write down every song that comes to me, even though I know that every song that comes to me isn't a song that I need to sing.
I'm constantly being inspired by the old days and taking things from the past and allowing them to lift me up where I am now.
If I have something inside me that I want to get out, I'll just beat it out on the banjo right then and there.
My number one style requirement is to have fun getting dressed. Nothing is too old, expensive, cheap, cute or ugly for me.
