WHAT ARE YOUR INFLUENCES?
My parents, Jay Z, The Coen Brothers, Kurt Vonnegut, Black Star, Jared McNeill, Gary Vaynerchuk, and inaccurately-attributed quotes on social media.
WHAT DO YOU FIND INSPIRING?
Good theatre, more than anything. It's the one art form where I always walk out wanting to create something immediately (If it's good, that is.)
TELL US A FUNNY STORY ABOUT YOURSELF.
So this past Winter I was out for a very close friend's birthday, and at one point the entire party ended up in the subway station. While waiting for a transfer, I (drunkenly) notice a homeless dude playing guitar and singing some Motown oldies. I was raised on Motown, so I joined in. It should be noted that, again, I was drunk and can't really sing all that well. The two of us went at it for nearly half an hour, we missed at least 8 trains, and by the time we brought it home (with a reprise of our first number, "Sweet Mary") we had several dozen people crowded around us singing along. There's video of the whole thing.
