Life is short and if you're looking for extension, you had best do well. 'Cause there's good deeds and then there's good intention, and they're as far apart as Heaven and Hell.
My choice is what I choose to do,And if I'm causing no harm, it shouldn't bother you.Your choice is who you choose to be,And if you're causin' no harm, then you're alright with me.
But I would never insult the people that love this music and I would never insult the blessing of music in my life and I would never insult myself by playing uninspired music.
That happens every time I get behind a guitar, regardless of what I'm saying, 'cause music is freedom and being free is the closest I've ever felt to being spiritual.
My head works in music, so there's always music there.
Folk is bare bones music.
I grew up listening to spiritual music, Blind Willie Johnson and folk.
I refuse to make uninspired music.
If I'm inspired and music inspires me, then I will continue to play it.
Right now I'm listening to a lot of different things but I listen to a lot of classical music. Eventually I would like to compose and perform classical.
Sometimes I think to talk too much about music almost cheapens it.
The music is in the lead here, and a large part of this, I have no idea what I'm doing. I feel a closer bond with the craft of songwriting, stronger than I ever have.
