In a noisy online world, the gift of someone’s attention is priceless.

Join me as I go deeper, past the headlines and the hearsay, to have the conversations I’ve always hoped for with the artists I admire the most.

How do the people vying for your attention balance the extreme highs and lows of a creative life: building and maintaining a fanbase, time for touring and family, artistic introspection and happiness? And what about the audience? Without you we’d all just be showoffs shouting into the void!
