On the state of the music industry, 2009

I really feel that, at this stage in life and where music is, live performances are again very vital. And that’s the one thing they can’t steal from you. They can’t replicate it, or download it for free, or anything else. So, live music is a crucial way for me to reach my audience. And the other thing is the internet, which has become an invaluable tool. Of course, you have to do it all yourself, so that puts the impetus on the artist. But I don’t mind that, I never felt the record companies knew what the heck to do either, so I might as well figure it out myself.
