What do you listen to on you iPod?
I actually don't have an iPod.
What does "Chicago music" mean to you?
I grew up in the Chicago area so maybe I am a bit bias, but I think we are incredibly lucky to have a city that offers music, art, food, etc. on the highest level. I lived in New York for five years and I can say that I prefer Chicago in every way, plus, the people are a lot friendlier!
What is your concert day routine?
I sleep a lot the day of any concert.
If you weren't a musician, what profession would you like to try?
If I weren't a musician, I would be a psychologist.
What's your favorite moment of any day?
My favorite moment is time alone, after the sun goes down.
