TURN-ONS: sense of humor, coffee, great music, kindness, and thunderstorms
DREAM GIG: touring with David Gray
FAVORITE LYRIC: There are way too many to choose from. One that I heard recently that I’ve always liked is this one from Ryan Adams:
There it is, we are only one push from the nest
There it is, we are only one moment from death
There it is, the sun rises
But the, the sun also sets

SONG I WISH I WROTE: ‘I’m Alive’ – Jackson Browne
5 PEOPLE I’D MOST LIKE TO HAVE DINNER WITH: My late Grandfather, Johnny Cash, Paul McCartney, Anthony Bourdain and Charlie Day
MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: Jackson Browne solo acoustic w/ Nanci Griffith at Denver Botanic Gardens has to be right up there. Glen Hansard w/ Lisa Hannigan at the Vic in Chicago was pretty great as well.
I WROTE THIS SONG: In the middle of the night, while looking out my window at a frozen Chicago skyline after a big storm a few years ago. Everything was so dark and cold. It felt like it would never go away. I finished the song in a couple of hours for the most part.
