Personal Quotes (2)

I was always obsessed with the thought that there was nothing special about me. I don't have a great voice. I'm not a great pianist. I play the accordion, which is kind of weird. I spent most of my time locked inside my home writing songs. I needed someone from the outside world to validate my efforts. When a label signed me and bankrolled my first album, I just couldn't believe it.
I think the industry knows more what to do with a sexy girl than a geeky-looking girl.
