As soon as I started writing the first batch, I had a vision. I saw me on stage playing a certain type of music. I want to take these blues melodies over aggressive guitars. I heard the sound I wanted to make. I knew what I wanted to do. It wasn't ever there before.
Even when I interviewed bands, it was about asking them about writing songs, so it was more for me than anybody else.
There are a lot of really good skills you get from doing journalism - it completely changed my world and how I interact with other people.
I guess I would call my music 'blues punk.' There's a lot of influences.
I don't think I ever wanted to be a journalist - I was more interested in what comes from being a journalist.
