ARTIST: Chris Pickering
BIRTHDATE: January 3rd, 1979.
BIRTHPLACE: Warwick, Queensland, Australia.
AMBITIONS: To be the best at everything. And be President.
TURN-OFFS: The United States Postal Service.
DREAM GIG: An acoustic solo show with special guests at Carnegie Hall.
ALL-TIME FAVE MOVIE: The Third Man, a 1949 film noir directed by Carol Reed. It’s pretty much the perfect movie for me.
PETS: None. I’m on the road too much. I would like to have a Tiger though.
MY GO-TO FEEL GOOD RECIPE: Eggs on toast, in any variation. Simple yet always awesome. A nice spicy Veggie stir-fry always feels pretty good too.
5 THINGS EVERY MAN SHOULD OWN: A notebook, a record player, a copy of “Kind Of Blue” by Miles Davis, an adjustable wrench, and a good suit.
WORDS TO LIVE BY: “Don’t eat until you are full.”
I WROTE THIS SONG: playing a nylon string guitar that had been made especially for me by a luthier in Australia. It was the first thing I wrote on it, and it just sort of tumbled out. It’s the same guitar that appears on the recording.
