You know, for most of its life bluegrass has had this stigma of being all straw hats and hay bales and not necessarily the most sophisticated form of music. Yet you can't help responding to its honesty. It's music that finds its way deep into your soul because it's strings vibrating against wood and nothing else.
I need to listen to chill music when I'm driving. It prevents road rage.
Listen to them, the children of the night. What music they make!

There just is exponentially more money in the movie business than in the music business. As a result there are more people involved in the creative process.
I can sometimes hear her music now, after thirty years -- and remember the leaves falling on some smoky autumn afternoon, the air crisp and the sounds of dogs barking, and train whistles far away.
When I write in Hebrew, I don't look for sophistication in music; it's just pure emotion that comes out.
Music used to be a lot more about angst for me. Now it's the only form of meditation I do.
