My wish list is pretty short. I wish that we had empathy.
I’m one with New York, and New York is one with me. I grew up there; there’s no escaping it.
Basically you’re performing for these tabloid outlets and the paparazzi.
Sort of doesn’t really matter as much anymore, when you’re surrounded by great musicians who bring their spirit, their own talent.
Words are maybe less than accessible at expressing.
Well, I’m not a scientist; I’m not an expert on environmental law; I’m a guy that can tell stories.
Let’s show people how desirable it is to step it up and climb towards heaven.
I would always just sort of pick up instruments and make noise with ’em.
I’ve been given the opportunity to be alive in this day and age, and it’s rare.
So I think we have a lot of room to grow and be a better society, and it’s a constant battle. It’s an exciting opportunity to be active.
I think it can be a lot more collaborative. People, instead of competing, they can actually support each other, in music.
So I always look for a way to communicate ideas and help to spread excitement for change.
And when you perform and create this story, they’re chuffed – they get excited, they capture it, and they put it out.
I think you can find a lot of joy and inspiration through food.
Words just aren’t necessary a good enough opportunity to express.
As great as technology is, it still has it’s limitations, because it’s only a frame of the truth.
Find a partner, commit to taking action, and hold each other accountable.
We must humble ourselves and commit to routine and collective actions.
I really do believe that in order to overcome our environmental shortcomings.
It’s sort of a combination between that and having the foundation that my mother gave me.
I think in the old music, everything was so competitive.
So I feel like I’m really lucky to be alive in a time where there’s so much opportunity to disrupt and shake it up.
In terms of the way we’re governed, and the way we sort of become complacent.
I am not an artist except that when I envision a concept, I sometimes indulge it.
We’re like Siamese twins, if you separate us, I’ll die.
But then, being a sort of rebellious, philosophical thinker, I’m always looking for new ways to shake things up.
They have to be desirable, well-designed and work well.
