For me, music is one of the most important things in my life. It is a creative outlet which allows me to release emotions that disrupt my calm if held inside. It is my ability to tell a story about things that are happening in my life but also a way of recognising what is happening in my life and dealing with it.
Blindspott had many successes because people could relate to our stories. People who listen to us have said “That’s exactly what is going on for me.”
Music is like a photograph for me. A still that can take me to a place in time. The first time I heard Deftones and Kyuss I was with my friends sharing some great moments. When I listen to Brothers in Arms it reminds me of my brother who passed away. I hear Boys to Men and I think back to my A Capella group when I was 11. I hear the cure and it reminds me of a break up.
Music has a powerful effect on us. A translation of vibration I call it.
