Has your art been affected by issues you’ve concerned about?
Well, this sort of goes back to my podcast and the theme of my show.
Music is something that has always been so therapeutic for me. Like for example, “Let Down” by Radiohead is one of those songs I could listen to over and over again and I’ll always be transfixed and feel comforted by the melodies. As far as my podcast, I want people, especially artists, to value their free time more.
I finished reading this book called “Bored and Brilliant,” and it’s about how we as artists need those moments of solitude and boredom to create and come up with unique ideas. All these devices can certainly make our lives easier, but they’re getting in the way of our free time, and they’re clouding our brain with so much useless information, which in turn makes it difficult to quiet the mind and think deeply and create.
I also think writing a book over the last year has made me realize how important it is to remain focused and clear-headed when you’re deeply in the process of creation.
What responsibility, if any, do you think artists have to use their art to help alleviate problems faced by others?
I have found myself singing and writing music again so I guess I’m just doing what I can to stay open and find time to create in as many different ways as possible.Staying curious and not limiting my desire for expression and it seems the older I get, I am even more open to different creative outlets in my life.From singing and songwriting, DJing, teaching Yoga, hosting a podcast or writing a book, these creative tools are allowing me to satisfy all my creative pursuits.I wish I could say I’m immune to the effects of cell phones, but I’ve become much more aware of how much these devices are merely distractions from what’s really most important.So I created a podcast/interview show where I get to speak with other musicians and artists about what we can all do to stay more present and creative.
