Maybe I'm genetically more inclined to music - but the music I make is so far removed from Indian classical music. I grew up in Texas!
The pop world is cool, but I never really thought of myself as part of it or wanting to be a part of it because I'm on a label that's not really like that. They're not trying to dress me up, they're not trying to do things like that. I feel like I'm sort of separate from that, actually.
You know, when you have a father who's pretty well known but you don't see him, the last thing you want to do is start talking about him all the time to people.
I'd done recordings, little demos, since I was in college, which I used to get gigs. But I never thought I'd have a record label.
