Quotes:
  • Usually, I write it all together. The words and the piano part just come to find where they sit together, and the sounds and everything just kind of roll around over and over, until it all settles as a song. Sometimes I'll hum while walking and write a song, but usually, I can never figure out a piano part to it later. It just stays a Capella song.
  • You make something, and you really have fun with it, and you try to put emotion in it, and at the end of the day, you have no idea how the tide is going to fall. You don't know if everyone's going to like it if everyone's going to hate it if it's going to be like you're a media darling or all of a sudden you're a sellout. You have no idea.
  • I write a tiny fraction of what I used to write. My only job used to be to just write songs, and that was a really nice job to have, but only a tiny amount of people heard those songs, and I didn't make a living from it, and eventually, I begged my parents to let me move back into my room.
