If I'm going to go out to be a solo artist, it's because I want to do something different without having to wait on someone else's schedule or hobbies or be limited by other people's prejudices. I'd be kind of stupid not to exercise that.
Once you sit in front of people and start playing songs, it's all on you. No matter what happens, it's entirely your responsibility the entire time. I like that intensity.
I think it's important for fans to know that but if I'm doing something that inspires me musically then I think it will inspire someone else too.
It's great when you play to an audience that knows the words to all your songs, and sings them back to you.
