Horowhenua Chronicle - - PUZZLES -

What les­son have you learned in your ca­reer that you would tell a young per­son want­ing to be a suc­cess­ful mu­si­cian?

I’d tell them make mu­sic that they love; mu­sic that lights them up, that makes them res­onate like a bell that’s been struck. I’d tell them never to try to guess what peo­ple might like, but al­ways fol­low their own in­stincts.

When can we ex­pect some new mu­sic from you, and will you play any on tour?

I’m hop­ing to make a new al­bum next year, and yes, there should be a few new songs in these up­com­ing shows.

You can only fit one al­bum by an­other artist is it?on your de­vice — what

Only one al­bum? Well, be­cause it’s so glo­ri­ously long, Mahler’s 3rd Sym­phony. Michael Til­son Thomas and the San Fran­cisco Sym­phony.

You’re cu­rat­ing a mu­sic fes­ti­val. Who’s on the bill, alive or dead?

Robert John­son, Prince Nico Mbarga, Aretha Franklyn, Judee Sill and Mu­latu As­tatke.

Af­ter all the tour­ing, what do you like to do most, when you come back home?

Go­ing out to a West Coast beach to watch the sea, with a hip flask of sin­gle malt, and Mu­latu As­tatke on the head­phones.
