Personal Quote:

I think EPs are the future of rock'n'roll. It makes you fine-tune and hone down your craft. Five songs for five bucks to me is the new math. I think people would be more willing and excited to spend five bucks, and a lot of people don't make ten grand songs. Five will really give you a chance to shine brighter. And maybe I'll do five twice a year.

Trivia:

Ex-son-in-law of Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd. See more »
