Yesterday I did 10 phone interviews with Australian media between 5PM and 8:20PM. Most of journalists were very nice and the interviews were quite enjoyable. Only one interviewer was clueless. When I hear questions like: please describe your music, what are your influences, and what inspires you, I know that the person has not listened to the music at all and is hoping to write the article simply using my words. My response: I am sorry, but I can’t help you. I am a musician. My job is to create music and it is your job to find words to describe/explain/critique it.
I did talk to most journos about “one guitar” and about doing a solo tour in the coming years.
Only 7 weeks to go… I am really looking forward to spending a little time in Australia and New Zealand again.
