"For me, I'm not really religious, I'd say I'm more spiritual. Music for me takes me to that spiritual level. It releases a lot of stress from work and makes me feel good. For me it's like religion, because I don't have that."
IS THERE ONE PARTICULAR STYLE OF MUSIC YOU LISTEN TO MOST AND WHAT DICTATES WHAT YOU LISTEN TO?
"My mood definitely dictates what I listen to. I love the Grateful Dead. I love jam bands. So I come to see Steal Your Face. After a show, I'm usually up and happy, so I'll go home and listen to Aretha Franklin or something... I love Sam Cook. I love all that old stuff. I just go home and rock out in my living room to top it off, that just kind of finishes it."
IS THAT YOUR HAPPY ENDING?
"That's my happy ending. Just dancing around in my living room and having a good time.
[At shows] I just close my eyes and get into my own world and I close everything out. I don't care if anyone else is dancing, I don't need to have drinks in me. I have to get right in there. I don't exercise, I don't run, this is my release, like the way people run or do yoga or whatever."
