Live from Memphis: Balancing Music and Life: A Survey

Live from Memphis has a new blog post about balancing music and life. Here are my answers to the survey. Read the whole post at Live from Memphis.

1. What do you find difficult about balancing your passion for making music and spending time with your significant other?

The fact that music isn't always pretty.

2. What are the upsides of being in a relationship as it pertains to making music?

Always something to sing about.

3. Do you ever feel that your art is relegated to being a "hobby"? Why?

No. If you define it as a "hobby" then you'd rather be watching a DVD.

4. Do you have any type of scheduled creative time where you are not to be bothered?

Right when I get up.

5. If you travel, how does your spouse/girlfriend/boyfriend feel about you leaving town for gigs?

Webcams are cheap now.

6. Has your significant other ever found themselves in your music? How much do you write about him/her? What about your kids (if you have them)?

Yes. I name check them so it'd be hard to miss.

7. What are some of the difficulties you have found balancing your day job with making music?

Day job can follow you home.

8. Has a boss or coworker ever commented (negatively or otherwise) on your music or art?

Yes, but negative is the new positive.

9. Have your goals/ambitions/priorities changed as you have gotten older? In what way?

Don't care about fame. Just want to create what I want and for people that hear it to either really like it or really hate it.
