"Tweety is new and older books and to preorder. George saunders new joint joining me from the windy city to help set up this episode. None other than the man. The myth the legend. Jeff tweet no no no way. No john modell. Elliot how are you. Hey executive editor on the line. Thank you very much. That kind intro If it makes you feel better. I did set up my equipment right outside. Jeff's house so. I'm just kind of sitting in the streets returning. Well all jokes aside. You actually have set up equipment with jeff. You worked on one of his videos. I did i worked on the video. For wilko's everyone hides which came out. You know what seems like twenty years ago but in fact their last full length album ode to joy yes it was. That was a beautiful in man. I i'm sure our listeners know quite a bit about jeff tweedy. He's grace talk house before and is Is it safe to say talk. House core josh. If we're inventing new genres absolutely. He is a grammy award winning musician. Famous for leading his experimental rock group wilco and before that the country legends uncle tupelo. He is also now a bestselling author. Just been staying super busy during the pandemic. He's been hosting nightly instagram show with his family and in october released both a new solo album. Called love is the king and his brand new book yeah. His new book is called how to write one song. And it's literally jeff tweedy advice on how to write one song. You gotta start somewhere. Tweety has written not one but a number of songs with norah jones in fact to on her last record. Tell us about nora. Josh i think a lot of people probably know who norah jones is considering she has sold a fifty million records worldwide and one nine gram. It's amazing not fifty million i. It's hard to fathom. isn't it a lot of people. Were probably introduced to her through her. Two thousand debut album. Come away with me which featured the massive hit don't know why but she's done a ton of stuff since then. She's made a handful of country. She's made more kind of soft jazzy records. She's got a trio called puss and boots. That released an album back in february and then her last proper record. Pick me up. A floor just came out this year and it features two songs as you said co written with jeff one called. i'm alive and the other is heaven above something else. That happened this year. She was nominated for a twenty twenty one. Grammy award for her duet with mavis staples. She's probably getting bored of all. These grammys at this point. I'll tell you what she is. Not getting bored of. She has a special coming up a christmas extravaganza with her band. Puss and boots. That livestream is set for december twelve. Do miss this. This should be awesome. Now josh nora and jeff are various potty. Go and get into quite a bit here through the idea of him teaching others about songwriting. We get some beautiful insight into tweets. Songwriting process yeah. I love how he talks about his routine. How he's writing every day and he gets a kind of into the nuts and bolts and county mystifies the the process of writing songs right. He definitely does he definitely does. He brings a very workman-like approach to it. Mid western you know midwest yeah verbs over nouns right exact- that's the lesson we learn here. We allister's you'll get that later. Yep one thing. That i thought was fun. Josh is that jeff is really devised quite a few strategies for example how to get out of your day to day conversation and into writing lyrics. There's so much great inside both in the book and in this conversation about the book to rotate man. Let's hear how are you. Oh my gosh. Great book by the way. thank you. it's good to see you. Thanks for doing this and fix writing this book. Thank you for doing this as as crazy. Well i'm going to ask a lot of favors of you at a later date. That's fine okay. By the way this book is really awesome. Thank you and i wish. I had it when i was twenty me two. Yeah i bet you do. Is this really to turn back time in like it yourself. There's so many little profound things in it and also tips and everything. Anyway i'm gonna ask you a bunch of questions about it. That's what i'm here for. I'll do my best to answer them. Do my best to ask questions. So how are you. Are you okay in the family. Everybody's good we are reasonably okay. Yeah yeah i get yeah were. We're keeping ourselves busy and spending a lotta time together. Unfortunately we we tend to enjoy our time together. So that's pretty nice. It's a nice little silver lining to this craziness is the togetherness. That's nice okay. So i'm an. I try to ask you mostly songwriting questions since the book is how to write one song. So have you found during this time that you've been extra inspired particularly or a little extra lazy or extra ansi or all of the above or day to day or or what. I mean for a pretty long time now. I've been relatively disciplined about like songwriting. Yeah i don't really think of it as being discipline. Though i mean i it sounds like it when you describe it to somebody else. It's just something. I feel better if i do every day. Yeah like most people have a routine that they better they do. Yeah yeah so. It's just one of those things that i i. It's a box. I like to check off. And feel. Like i touched base with that part of who i am and i think that it becomes more necessary as a consolation when things are scary like when We went through my wife's cancer diagnoses. There seemed to be a similar type of need for it personally as a constellation or is a little bit of a respite from the stress and anxiety so i tend to get a little bit more focused but for the most part. It's it's very similar. I mean a a road all of the songs on the record that are coming out in a couple of weeks since march. Yeah okay so you know. It's it's been a pretty provocative time. But it's hard to say that it's more productive. I just feel like i need it more. I think it must be nice to have a routine like that.

"Person like out here you know. So it was easier for whatever reason it was just a really great connection. Good connections are kind of sometimes hard to find. It's where people go in. It's like if you're on a diving board right and you don't know what you're. Doing on your triple dismount or whatever they call it in the high dive, you're going to do a complete bellyflop in the water. So it's really the onset before these guys or you get on these apps it's like what is the purpose? What is the intention? If the intention is You know shoot for the moon you might land on a star I might be looking for the love of my life, but I might end up meeting of really cool friend. If that intention is there more, people will be open to it. I do want to caution you most guys if they're attracted to they don't know how to kind of. Immediately. Downshift into Habe my buddy. Right. So if you're losing people in that way, please don't worry about that because it's just their own intention. It has nothing to do with you. One of the biggest things setting up dates for twenty years. One of my biggest frustrations is I only put people together that have really good core components of compatibility. I actually don't care if people get married or have sex or find love when I care. About is the connection and I'm always kind of bummed when I come into my office on a Monday morning and get yeah, you know awesome person there should be more people like her in the world. You know we don't have that sexual chemistry next it's like Oh what you know are you kidding there's so much value knowing this. What if she has a best friend that could be good for you Or what have you guys end up being business partners or friends or whatever. So I look at the massive opportunity that's in front of you and using the dating apps as just not necessarily saying you're looking for friends. It's just about it's going to naturally happen if you take your eye off the target and don't worry what these people do you know clean up your own yard do not worry about. The reactions of these guys stick to the plan no. Why you're confident write it down understand what you bring to the table understand that you're not being rejected right just overwhelm and to start fresh here embraced the unknown and all of these new connections you're about to make because I see amazing things for you while Jenny I do too. I see amazing things for me as well with April my life. Seaney did we help you? Oh yeah definitely I got like so much out of this like a lot more than like just going out and trying to things experiencing. Failing. This'll be great help that makes me really relieved and really happy truly yeah Ginny you're awesome. Thank you. Thank you. Bye. Bye Fi. April I cannot thank you enough for being here with us today you are just magnificent and brilliance and truly so. Helpful to myself and to our listeners. Thank you again I. Appreciate that..

"That have felt like maybe you had a slight connection, but it didn't build into a friendship is there anybody that you can reach back out to now a couple of them but? I know they've moved far away. Okay. Can I make a recommendation for you? Okay. Those gals that moved can you get on the line with them today because you know I'm not seeing a lot of on it but I'm not seeing a lot of people right now either so it doesn't even really matter that somebody is out of town. Because I think what you need is the practice of building relationships. So reach back out to those two people today and just say, Hey, I was thinking about you. We didn't get to really develop friendship because he moved away and I'm just really on the need of some great. You know connection with other like minded women, and then when you put that out there a promise you you will get something. So beautiful right back start there because then you're gonNA Kinda get in the rhythm don't worry if they're here or elsewhere just get in the rhythm of making date with those people like do it like, Hey, can we do like Wednesday? Meet Up Sunday morning tea. I. Remember One time I was in college. I had been kind of rejected by a sorority that sounds more dramatic than it was I certainly did not belong in a Sorority, which is why lived in the dorms at least that's how I self identified. So that was stinging my feelings for a minute and this girl came up to me in my creative writing. Class is she basically said, I really liked the piece the wrote I wanna be your friend and she was a quiet girl like I was in this class it was a small class and then we stayed friends for four or five years after I moved to Los. Angeles but remember I was in a very lonely time in my life and I remember being so. Honored by her and feeling very safe in her directive like I like you. You seem interesting and odd. But. That felt like a little bit of a lesson to me like I was impressed by her courage to come up to me and start engaging with me I know that we're obviously now in different times but I really appreciated that but Jimmy I only use that anecdote to talk about myself. No I agree and it's so hard. You know my husband is an introvert as well and I look at our group of friends and they're mostly mind you know that I introduced to our life. You know I actually have a lot of shyness nobody knows that but I worked through it. I really made it like my business because I didn't want people to think differently of me I didn't. Want people to think that I wasn't kind that I wasn't warm. It was like a muscle I had to consistently work that. But just like you were saying on a having somebody, come up and say I wanNA know you was because you probably wrote something that was revealing and and it was cool. It said something about you. So sparked interest in her it doesn't matter if it's friends or. That same thing exists the only differences were either having sex with our partners or we're just hanging out their friends but the warmth and the love and the companionship. It's always I think the same and I've noticed that whenever I'm kind of out there in the world being real I get more bees with honey, right? So I think on his right on that journey if I were you I. Wish we could look at her profile right now on. I remember like trying to experiment like, okay. Maybe I'm just blind to us off just see like truthful about my sexual experience 'cause you know let's face it. That's where all guys are out there for, and then I noticed that when I said Okay Hey I'm a virgin I got less likes that way. Okay. So the there's a difference on your online dating profile. You want to be personable without being personal bright 'cause it's too scary. You can't just open up the door and let everybody into the house like you have to guard yourself more with that. I'm talking about sharing your personality traits. So a lot of people on their dating APPs, they do the I m I m I m I suggest talking about him like you speak directly into his listening so you're writing like. Maybe like a couple of traits about yourself like, Hey I'm you know I come from Michigan and I had this kind of background and I'm now out here after college. Blah Blah Blah looking for great connections and then immediately go to him and describe him like you're somebody I wanNA know because you are and then list three traits that you want in somebody you're talking about what he does or what he looks like you're saying because you're compassionate and you're kind and you're curious. Like I want to know you, right. April. I love what you say about curiosity because I do think we all WanNa talk about ourselves and we all want people to know us and so when you speak about the broad spectrum of curiosity, what did you personable but not personal? Yes. That is something that I would have a really hard time with. I also want to make sure that you know when you've been holding out sexually for awhile you make this really big thing and you put a lot of pressure. I heard it in your voice earlier when you said like, I need to trust somebody in advance. Before I go there Ya trust isn't in that person because people will make mistakes and you cannot control the behaviors of others, but you can definitely really like sit with yourself and go do I trust me. Like do I trust my own instincts when I'm in this person's world. So when I met my husband things kind of progress quickly on the physical plane, my kind of broke all of my own rules quickly and it wasn't because he did or said anything to gain my trust it's because I learned how to trust my gut like woo, this is a safe guy. This is a good guy I could tell, right so make sure you're not putting too much pressure on yourself or some new guy that you're just getting to know because you're waiting for him to really show up. Big. In order to go there physically because you might be thinking that these guys are leaving because you don't have sexual experience, they could be leaving because a maybe they are looking for one thing and you know what they exist but there's plenty of guys exist out there that are looking for a relationship. We hear from them every day. It could also be that he doesn't know how to handle it or that maybe he's feeling the pressure of being something for you. It's like a big mountain right? You want it to be easy to get to know you and fluid, and then when you feel trust yeah. Great. DECIDE IF YOU'RE GONNA go there sexually. But don't make that his responsibility just get to know these people. Yeah April, you are why is Because, I'm all on. Those but. I. Think earlier April you said that sometimes you would find friends through the dating APPs. That actually happened to me. 'CAUSE I met my best friend when I was back in Michigan this little guy I met on. Okay. Tooth at of all places. and. So obviously completely ron dating. We had these expectations that'd be something more than like we kept talking to each other and we just became friends every expense even if I've moved all the way to California. So as long as we maintain that online friendship like it's always GonNa be there. So it's like if that was simple wise it so hard to do it in.

Can I ask how did you meet your husband will negate? Oh actually it's Kinda funny I think it's funny. I was singing a couple songs with this Bob Dylan tribute show. So I was just singing I wasn't playing piano. He was playing Oregon he was playing the cool part on just like a woman with organ Augusta and I kind of looked back and I guess I'm we got him and he's like Oh. Cool. She winked at me you know we'll hang out. But then the more he got to know me realize I like Britain Adalah have a little bit of a nurse. I think I would just blinky I just turned my head from the audience to blink. And they wouldn't see me. That's really sweet. I'm interpreting this as like extreme certification and I love her already. Now it's like what I'm the Chosen One now. So. Then what happens? Well, that was the first time I met him. I. Don't think. I saw like till the next tribute show in that time we clicked and we hung out all night that was it. That's romantic that you like clocked each other inland. There was some time. Yeah. All right. What is your favorite rainy day movie? You'RE GONNA laugh but it's just friends and you're in it. Really. Is Not it is because you you're awesome in it. You're hysterical enemy you crack me up so much. But I also, it makes me like WanNa, move to a small town in New Jersey and schoolteacher and live a simple life I love that movie. It makes it look so feeling and you crack me up. Gregory up. I. Dreamt of doing Samantha James I need to play her again really was just a fucking best in were. She's so funny. All you should do it album lura this is genius I will produce it. I'm not sure I'm the right type of musician to produce the Samantha James Alabama Way May. Exactly. Oh. We've got your. With the toothpaste. Here I. Made. My husband and we had two guy friends over Christmas. They stay over every Christmas we have like a little Christmas but I made them all watch that movie 'cause it none of them have seen it we we're trying to figure out a good movie to watch that the kids Kinda come in and out on and we all were like hungover and Lazio. God Watch. You Watch, they loved it was fun. You're giving me a so much joy. I was able to save a few key elements of that wardrobe because the wardrobe was just incredible and the character was atrocious. Nor I might not let us go though. I think that maybe this is the sequel somehow it's the spinoff there should definitely be a sequel. Will it involves you? So you have to agree to this right now live on air. I'm always down for. That would be incredible if Samantha is just totally adoring and demure, and in front of you, she's like I'm going to do a jazz album. Incredible. Okay. Well, hopefully, we can start it here. All right. What qualities do you look for in a friends I, don't know if it's a quality but the ability to just pick up where you left off we all have busy lives and I have friends. I don't talk to for a year or two sometimes. But then when I do, it's not like any time is poss- we play catchup still in the same connection level. There's no weird like you didn't call me because those kinds of people don't last we are too scattered. You know I know and as women we already are living with so much guilt wait. The I'm with you very much. But I struggled with my female friendships in general because I've always been very I have one best friend that I'm kind of in love with as I've gotten older, it's shifted but made me feel very alone in life. Like there was a secret code to a Sorority or something that I didn't understand and I wanted to be a part of him was envious of, but I didn't know how to social. There was another language that I just didn't know. I think it's interesting. I wonder why I mean I know growing up I didn't have a ton of girlfriends I would always have like one friend but as an adult I have a lot of very good girlfriends actually, I, was thinking about it recently. How many wonderful women on friends I WANNA be your friend, I. AM. What occasion do you Li- rural I read something recently, really don't ever lie to your kids on like really, but I try not to feel like this is a question that as I get older. I'm forty three I still have parents sometimes I lied to them. Yeah exactly. But for the most part, I feel like I'm going to get caught by press or something Oh. Yeah. Seth Rogan. Saying that he lies to press and I don't think I could get away with it. I don't think I'm great at it and the risk of getting caught. Yeah. chills much more embarrassing than Oh. Yeah. Actually telling an uncomfortable truth. Yeah lying seems so stressful and not worth it. When he says he likes the press is he just messing with them like that seems fun. Yeah, I think that's probably because I don't think that he has a lot to hide either. All right. What is your greatest extravagance? Taking Baths Nora that cannot be your greatest extravagance although as a mother to two young children I walk that back inside I. Loved it. I'm not saying it's the fanciest thing I do I think I'm just saying it's the thing I liked to do most. You know I've been a lot of time in hotels so I will say love a good. Hotel Hot Cubbon Steve and. That's just being on tour. Sisley I think to those moments of aloneness especially with young kids, I mean I used to dry my thin hair for like an hour and a half.

"Was a little unsure as well. Let's go to STU couple days and see if we fit I'm not going to commit to. Anything like of him. Oh Yeah I. Am Not every day, but. It was like a cold call. Cold Call. Picked up. Guys what happens when you pick it? Now you've got commission. I don't remember I. Don't remember. It was a cold call, but Imagine back. There's other projects that have been pitchy that you were so like I'm not sure. Can you name one artist that you were supposed to work with her? I'll never tell orcas. There could be done is. Things that I regretted. Saying not though learn new. Warn no one. Now, I feel weird. What is research? You use regret. I got an email from alliance and I was just too busy or something I don't know. I spawned I didn't do it, but I don't know. If, it was something crazy or what, but I wanNA. Let you on a song that starts with four hits the beginning. Down Donna call me that I missed. I missed my chance. He's he's always creating so. Yeah, I mean. That's the thing. Is I think I went through a little period of kind of being overwhelmed by everything and just wanting to sort of. Chill so I, said notice some things that you had a little bit of A. Own Little mini nervous breakdown, but Yeah Billy. Joel called me and I said. Let's try a couple of days before we commit to doing it. Because he wanted to do this whole album. It wasn't just a song or two. And it was cool. He let me hire the band from New York. He came to New York to do it. and. I really love that record is beautiful. Surprising or I'm surprising because it is surprising. The thing is is that I was sort of like okay. But then it's like okay. You collaborate with everyone, so it's almost like. I'm not shocked. It wasn't that shocking, but. Okay so! Well, with others you could say. All Right, so are alto saxophone. Drum collaboration. Dusan Russell's. That'd be fun, so is picking the floor. That's going to be your eighth record correct. Now. Will your eight. North Avalon's or AIDS. I'm not sure okay. Besides the single I haven't heard. Be I'll you have it? I haven't heard the album yet, but oh, that's too bad. I really I think you'll be into it. Are you into? Brian, Blade yes more than that Jones Fan. I'm not I'm not. I'm not doing this 'cause. You're just next on the pike like. Well I think you'd like it because. It's a Lotta. This piano trio stuff I was talking about. I got really inspired a right for the piano trio setup winded ended up adding stuff adding some production to it, but it. All most of the records started sorta stripped down in the single is actually not even. What this is! The the two songs released so far are the two exceptions to this sort of piano trio. Base of this record, but it was the opposite of. A little bit, but that's gay but Who Him with production. I to which tweety. Those are awesome in the rest I just SORTA did it in New York. I've been doing these collaborations in China. Release singles lately just to stay inspired, and not have to do like a whole cycle in the process of doing all these. I got all these extra tracks that I loved and so. They all Kinda fit together. And that? One off singles in your have been doing. China dislike collaborate with people I. Love like like doing that. Billy Joel thing was so cool, but it was still commitment because it was a whole album, so I've been trying to do just one song with people. I did one with tank tank from bengals and Jeff tweedy. We did a couple in these two songs on this album from session to I. Just had all these extra songs from these sessions so. All right well I mean in in terms of. Do you still feel that the. The date will still get honored or. I think we pushed it to June. Yeah. You. Know it's funny. I feel like people are home.

"I mean that's the only way you describe it. You've yeah. How eager were you to do it? A super eager. I was just eager to make music. I was eager to play guitar and rate more songs. I was inspired. I was listening to a ton of like Bluegrass at the time. So my second album was a little bit more country inspired but I was definitely excited to get it over with as well. That's not to say I rushed the music at all or that. I was like hurrying in put out something. I wasn't proud but I was stoked to be inspired into just go ahead and plow through the second record and not not overthinking for feels like home correct. Yeah I think but that did like a million. Its first week which yeah which is great which is almost as like okay. I can live on now more than where did you out of out of your because you going through so many I won't even say phases because I don't feel like these are like drastic bowie or prince like changes in your music but you definitely had a personality to all your records might Akeso. My personal favorite of of of your canning is little broken hearts. But for you and don't give me the like all my own record to like my children and I guess some of them. I like more than kidding or bill is like what's your put my my ass in that one foot one. I think I also love that one. You're talking about of the danger mouse when it's just so different in love the sonics of it but it's funny because I've been playing on the last couple years. I've been playing here and there with a piano trio. Just me and Brian Blade on drums. Chris Thomas on Bass sometimes different bass players but I when I started playing with this group I thought. Oh cabinet pull out some of the more jazzy songs in my Cadillac. But truthfully my favorite songs to play with the setup. Is the songs from that album. Little broken hearts in there is not just not what I thought it would be there. Just I think they're great songs and I. I think I think that Brian Burton is incredible songwriter. And we had so much fun. Making that record yeah. I know it's it's it's definitely special. Do you feel What is your creative process like with songwriting? Because I know that. Collaboration is also a big thing for you. Do you tend to do birds of a feather as far as Flocked to people that 'cause I know that you work with Jeff Tweedy Jeff. Call them go every time you know like you work with tweety and but I'm just saying meant A. Do you often ever consider like totally like okay. Well Timeout. I totally forgot. Now that you were with Andre Three thousand so even when you're entering in what we would think your general audience would think like not familiar territory. Like how does the Hausa process start? I mean a lot of stuff. I've collaborated with people on stuff that they've already written it's already done and I'm just coming in and singing life with Andre. Three thousand thing the Cue Tips Song. I I went in. I just saying what he wanted me to sing but as far as collaborating songwriting. Why is at? It's been evolving over the years. It's completely changed. I mean I used to be a nervous songwriter now. I think after doing the record with Brian actually his process really open me up to no fear. Songwriting I'm just curious because We're supposed to eventually get with. Ryan what is his actual process. Because the thing is I know you know. He's youtube process yet. Might be different for everyone knows waiting for our no a another nine you to weigh like. How does he start will for us? I mean we just went in. We're pretty comfortable with each other. At this point we were already friends. We'd already hung out a bunch. I did. I say on the road album with him so I got to know him through all that but You know we both play. Whatever instruments sound good in the room and the song starts with a weird baseline or a weird chord progression or me strumming something on the guitar And it goes your store music. I I mean honestly I don't remember completely not always sometimes like it'll be a melody or he'll have a melody his head oil. He'll have uric animality in his head or I will Sort of built from there and usually we tried to get him out some kind of melody down whether he's hearing something or whether I am and then this is where I learned a lot from him because first of all this process was totally different than anything ever done. I never got in the studio with nothing or with bunch of instruments in just like adding stuff leering it. I've never done. I had never done that and so I would like sing some scratch lyrics. Things like school will get the lyrics later as a really. I'm so worried about it. Are we going to get him? You know and I would come in and look. I'm just worried about this. I really liked this but I don't know what to write. The what are the. He's like. Come don't worry about it. And you know what they always came and they were always in the moment heartfelt and you know we worked on them but that was a nice way for me to learn and lately. I've been doing more of that. I've been going in with people with nothing in just trying to like throw stuff at the wall and coming out with stuff that I'm totally in love with you know so you never go through because the one the one thing I have to commend you on at least is that you deliver and you push through because normally Whenever anyone gets into a position of something that Gargantuan or successful that's usually when they start sabotaging their creative process that's usually win. Writer's block sets in and decades go by before even hear another note from them. And so the fact that you push through it and also all your side projects with the the the little willies and with Pushing boots how many other side projects which is my favorite is Carlos with Roger? You really the only fan of that band fucking yes that project is called L. Madden. Oh and that was brief but We put out a record and we didn't put any of our names on it because at the time. I think it was right after my second album it come out and I think part of me staying creative enjoying music was to pull back a little bit from all the attention instead. This album was really fun. And then we put it out under these fake names and then nobody really knew about it. It's kind of like totally sabotaged it by doing that. But you're the only fan letter are still on my ipod. Just sort of the beginning play guitar and we went on like this huge stadium tour on the feels like home record. Basically my drummer. My backup singer at the time we started this band me and her learn how to play. Bass Guitar a little bit. And that was before pushing boots continued my sorta guitar education but speaking of collaborations habit you. Billie Joe Armstrong wind up doing the EVLI brothers album Billie Chou called me and he asked if I would be into doing this thing and I was a little unsure as well. Let's go to STU couple days and see if we fit. I'm not going to commit to anything like of him. Oh Yeah I am not every day but it was like a cold call. Cold call picked up guys. What happens when you pick it now? You've got a commission now. I don't remember I don't remember it was a cold call but Imagine back there's other projects that have been Pitchy that you were so like I'm not sure. Can you name one artist that you were supposed to work with her? I'll never tell orcas there could be done is things that I regretted saying. Not though learn new warn Marino no one now I feel weird. What is research you use regret? I got an email from for months and I was just too busy or something. I don't know I spawned. I didn't do it but I don't know if it was something crazy or what but I WanNa let you on a song that starts with four hits the beginning down. Call me that I missed. I missed my chance. He's he's always creating so yeah. I mean that's the thing is I think I went through a little period of kind of being overwhelmed by everything and just wanting to sort of chill So I said notice some things that you had a little bit of a own little mini nervous breakdown. But Yeah Billy. Joel called me and I said let's try a couple of days before we commit to doing it because he wanted to do this whole album. It wasn't just a song or two and it was cool. He let me hire the band from New York. He came to New York to do it and I really love. That record is beautiful surprising or I'm in surprising because it is surprising. The thing is is that I was sort of like okay. But then it's like okay. You collaborate with everyone so it's almost like I'm not shocked. It wasn't that shocking. But okay so well with others. You could say all right so are alto saxophone drum collaboration Dusan Russell. That'd Be Fun. So is picking the floor. That's going to be your eighth record. Correct now will your eight North Avalon's or AIDS. I'm not sure okay. Besides the single. I haven't heard be. Oh you have it. I haven't heard the album yet but oh that's too bad. I really. I think you'll be into it. Are you into Brian Blade? Yes than that Jones Fan. I'm not I'm not. I'm not doing this. 'cause you're just next on the pike like well. I think you'd like it because it's a Lotta this piano trio stuff I was talking about. I got really inspired a right for the piano. Trio setup winded ended up adding stuff adding some production to it but it all most of the records started SORTA stripped down in. The single is actually not even what this is.

"How did you come to be tension at Bruce at blue? was doing one of those jazz restaurant gigs at the garage on Seventh Avenue and my bass player's friend's wife. They all came for Brunch. It was like a Brench Gig. And she happened to work for EMI music. Publishing I was doing jazz at that Gig I had started. You know doing those songwriter gigs already, but this was adjusted gig. She said Hey. I know Bruce Lindbergh I met him at a company picnic would if I said when appointment for you I was like all right whatever? Yeah I'm like Okay I. mean sure I'll show up. That's for sure, but I didn't really know. If she was for real right and I had a demo that I had made to take around a club. Get Gigs so I brought. The Demo had to standards on it and had one song. My friend Harris who wrote. Don't know why we already friends and playing around together. And so I brought it in I was twenty. It was the GIG was my twenty first birthday.

Shit was real. I mean I knew she could get me an appointment with them. I didn't know what was real for a while, but he he said will. Pop pops on your kind of his not really pop song, but whatever it was not a jazz standard. He's sued you WanNa, be adjusting her pop singer and I was a sitting there and blue. Note Office Gelsinger. And then he gave me some money to make some demos, and the demos ended up being a few of the songs from that I record. and. He decided that wasn't super jazz. It wasn't like. Wasn't what he thought. It wasn't jazz, but he's still liked it enough to sign it. So he went ahead and signed me. Or so in hindsight. Because no one can plan, no one can plan this phenomenon. But in hindsight.

That's the thing that people do now, but it's kind of weird to. Wait, are you a call before you? Are you a text before you call person? Yes, or least has everybody is or at least worn before you facetime? Yes, but I'm also not somebody who just picks up the phone. If somebody calls me, you seem to also be someone who just picks it up, no matter what. I saw her and I'm like okay. This must be about I work on her show so obviously.

I know influenced raised me and I'm like a combination of that, but who's your singing spirit? I think growing up. It was Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin Billie holiday. Are Skipping to the future. How was it working with Ray on the one is due. What's record? It was amazing. He was super sweet. We did three live tastes in any left and that was it. Just real quick in just real quick live takes with the band and billy, Preston was playing Oregon so. We was awesome. My mom came.

Same Song Got Wim Super Nice though yeah, like like warm in kind. But I. Mean I I love all these people but I think I've tried to keep. I Dunno, I learned. I think when it came to New York and I was singing jazz I got a little. Sort of disheartened. And I realize I'm seeing these old songs that Billie holiday saying. And I'm putting my own spin on. It is cool, but. I started going to the living room, writing songs and singing songs by my friends that they were writing. I felt a little more creative in that way when it kind of fell off the jazz scene. She didn't WanNa get typecast as like a sort of derivative. Billie Holiday Inn. I don't know if it was about wanting to get typecast I think he was just about couldn't get any gigs that were. Satisfying you know I played in restaurants. Small a lot and I watched people playing. It was awesome, but I couldn't get a Gig there yet and. I, did get a Gig at the living room now where the audience listen and I felt really connected to something I was going to say okay so at I've been in New York for ten years now and I'm out often. I got like a little before five in the cut jazz bots that I go to just A. Chilling, be anonymous or is anonymous as you can be six three with an Afro Anyway, but the one thing that really.

"I would think I was playing saxophone by that time in marching band and my saxophone teacher recommended this Jazz Piano Teacher in Dallas named Julie. Bonk shoes super cool and she was great teacher. She taught me how to record. Changes in improvised and tried to spark me in writing songs so it just totally took a different direction from the so this is out. You're discovering gesture ups. Yeah this is like eighth grade when I got into jazz And my mom. She checked out like you know the Smithsonian Jazz collection at the library in we dubbed it on a cassette That was my Bible for a few years So how did you hone those taps into like? Did you play in local bands? High school bands? Like did you bond with anybody your age in in jazz or yeah just keep it to yourself well being in marching band. I mean kids marching band already. Were sort of into stuff like that. Some of them there was like adjust band and then I went to interlocken for a summer was. It's like arts camp in Michigan. Yeah it's two months long and I got really into hanging with people who knew a lot about it. He you know and then I really wanted to go there. They had a. They have a school during the year. Art School. But you have to leave home is like a what you call it a school. Where lived there? My brain isn't working. Renner sweat My mom was like no way. You're not leaving only yeah I just loved it. It was great and I wanted to continue doing it and she was. She was like Hell No Check the school out. She found booker. T. Washington we moved to Dallas. Just so I could be in county to to audition and go there all the kids there. That's I mean I learned from the kids at my school other than so much so many of those kids new so much about music. So many genius you know probably are other notable. Choose at there at the time. That are like well. I think the people that I learned the most with were piano players who couple more year or two older like Arizona. Brain lacy was there. And Sean Martin on the keys or are see Williams. I learned so much from these guys. They grew up in church playing piano in the church bands and stuff and They knew I mean just geniuses anyway but it was a cool cool environment was an equally like a sort of accepting atmosphere. Did you feel like all right? I got to come with it in. Let the North speak the same language your now. I- such a Dork. I was just like high guys can ending our own. It was super accepting everybody. There was an odd ball. You know anyway so everyone's cool are CR I went to. I went to school with a Christian McBride. Enjoy Different Zesco and an Kurt Rosa Winkel and in I can see I. I always compare Going to that school I went to the Philadelphia version of that school kind of as I consider it sort of like A. It's like a gang experience like a bloods and crips experience. Any Jillian Chris like they wouldn't even they don't give you the time of day or respect like you instantly know that they're in the. Alpha's of band class that you had to. I'm the first day of school the first day of school. Miles Davis is giving a master class in now only takes Jillian Chris To do this thing with him on television but then later hires Jill at sack to replace Kirkland so that was like my first day at the school and so you know they just knew all traditional jazz. Meanwhile Kurt Roosen winkle who who's such a experimental avant-garde musician on records right now but back then. He was China. Unlearn me or UNE. Teach me all the traditional like the traditional stuff. He's like man. I want to listen to Frank. Zappa and captain beef heart. And you know Mina Vishu Orchestra John. The glass and so like China I was on both sides of the gang. That's great for you within left them both for a rap career so inform your informed by all of it and you become who you are you know but it was it was like it was literally like being like whatever side was winning. That was my side like okay. That's funny here you're the Ping Pong ball exactly is I didn't feel that. I know that attitude you're talking about It's like a young musician thing for sure I feel like I didn't feel that it makes school. Maybe I was too naive to see it but never I never felt it pretty pretty welcoming. I mean before. Your career took off Did you have a plan just for like okay? I'll do the college Dean Burke Lear Goto. Yeah I well we were in Dallas so I did. I wanted to go to like the new school or Manhattan school music but We stayed in state tuition cost. University of Texas has a great jazz program and so I went there for two years and took all my classes music classes and I failed my classical piano jury because I just didn't practice enough and then I came to New York for the summer and I had a real sort of moment of reckoning and thought well if I go back to finish college would have to take academics for two years because already took all the jazz classes. And I'm going to have to do classical two years of classical juries in really practice and I just didn't WanNa do any of that. Does it work? Does that entail? Would it entail like the classical part? It's not that it was so hard is that I really just didn't practice enough It was like scales in our peggie in one song. It wasn't that hard I I was really into the other stuff I was doing. I kind of let it slide understandable. I'm standpoint so once you came to New York. What was the paradigm shift? That really opened. Its doors as far as like okay. I can have a career in start singing woes that moment. Well I mean. I realized that I could play gigs and but I would have to start waiting tables. It was different because in college. I had weekly Gig where I made enough money to make my rent and Plus tips in food. I played this restaurant and learn how to sing and play at the same time. Which is sort of payed practice? So it was great right but then when I moved to New York I realized Oh shit I gotta wait. Tables can't make enough money playing gigs. Because they didn't pay very much at all And I got a little burnt out our came to New York singing jazz and playing the piano but I wasn't as good a piano players beyond players out there. Would I knew I could sing so I had that you know that going for me sort of you know trying to. I came to New York to do this thing in the We're having your is just went like Oh shit. You can't hear this Kenya as Zoe. I'm interviewing nor Jones right okay. This is a Flex Zoe. Kravitz is interrupted us. I'm interviewing Norah Jones right now for my i. Guess Are you K- over there in London. Thank you sir. I'm sorry okay I side note. It's twenty twenty. I'm the person that likes a person text first and then tell me that they're calling not me. That's the thing that people do now. But it's kind of weird to wait. Are you a call before you? Are you a text before you call person? Yes or least has everybody is or at least warn before you facetime. Yes but I'm also not somebody who just picks up the phone. If somebody calls me you seem to also be someone who just picks it up no matter what I saw her and I'm like okay. This must be I work on her show so obviously but at forgot to bring off so under that bills. Kill me over that too. Sorry attorneys. It's the thing you either you either nor the call if you don't want to be caught off guard or you take it anyway so I guess that says a lot about you even though you prefer the I didn't know how to turn it off sir. I'll I don't CARE ANYWAY. Yes so you you were saying that singing at least gave you an edge at I really. I Love Your Voice by the way which I don't think you get enough praise for like who's who's the person meant. Lose your your spirit animal when you're singing like you know because I'm not a singer can't say I know that when I'm drumming. There's for particularly drummers that I know influenced raised me and I'm like a combination of that. But who's your singing spirit? I think growing up it was ray Charles and Aretha Franklin Billie holiday are skipping to the future. How was it working with Ray on the one is do what's record? It was amazing. He was super sweet. We did three live tastes in any left. And that was it just real quick. Just real quick live takes with the band and Billy Preston was playing Oregon so we was awesome. My mom came. She saw him play when she was in high school so it's the first time I've ever seen her quiet is great. He was he was. He was pretty sick already so he he was nice though same. Song Got Wim Super Nice though. Yeah like like warm in kind but I mean I I love all these people but I think I've tried to keep I duNno. I learned I think when it came to New York and I was singing jazz. I got a little sort of disheartened and I realize. I'm seeing these old songs that Billie holiday saying and I'm putting my own spin on. It is cool but I started going to the living room writing songs and singing songs by my friends that they were writing and I felt a little more creative in that way when it kind of fell off the jazz scene. She didn't WanNa get typecast as like a sort of Derivative Billy Holiday Inn. I don't know if it was about wanting to get typecast. I think he was just about. Couldn't get any gigs. That were satisfying. You know. I played in restaurants smalls a lot and I watched people playing. It was awesome but I couldn't get a Gig there yet and I did get a Gig at the living room now where the audience listen and I felt really connected to something. I was going to say okay so at. I've been in New York for ten years now and I'm out often. I got like a little before five in the cut jazz bots that I go to just a chilling be anonymous or is anonymous as you can be six three with an Afro. Anyway but the one thing that really like it's disheartening for me when I'm in the jazz clubs is.

"Choose at there at the time that are like well. I think the people that I learned. The most with were piano players who? Couple more year or two older like Arizona brain lacy was there and Sean? Martin on the keys or are see Williams I learned so much from these guys. They grew up in church, playing piano in the church, bands and stuff and They knew I mean. Just geniuses anyway but. It was a cool cool environment. Was An equally like a sort of accepting atmosphere? Did you feel like? All right I got to come with it in. Let the north. Speak the same language your. Now I- such a Dork I was just like. Hi, guys can ending our. Own it was super accepting everybody there was. An odd ball you know anyway, so everyone's cool are CR I went to. I went to school with a Christian McBride Enjoy Different Zesco. Wow and an Kurt Rosa Winkel, and in I can see I i. always compare going to that school. I went to the Philadelphia version of that school. Kind of as I I consider sort of like A. it's like a gang experience like a bloods and crips experience. Any. Jillian Chris like they wouldn't. Even they don't give you the time of day or respect like you instantly know that they're in the Alpha's of band class that you had to I'm the first day of school. The first day of School Miles Davis. Is giving a master class in. Now only takes Jillian. Chris to do this thing with him on television, but then later hires Jill at sack. To replace Kenny Kirkland. So that was like my first day at the school and so. You know they just knew all traditional jazz. Meanwhile, Kurt Roosen winkle who who's such a experimental avant-garde. On records right now, but. Back, then he was China. unlearn me or teach me. All the traditional like the traditional stuff. He's like man. I want to listen to Frank Zappa. And captain, beef heart, and you know Mina Vishu Orchestra. John the glass and so. Like China I was on both sides of the gang. That's great for you. Within left them both for a rap career so. Inform your informed by all of it and you become who you are you know. But it was, it was like literally like being like whatever side was winning. That was my side like okay. That's funny. Here you're the Ping Pong. Ball exactly is I didn't feel that I know that attitude. You're talking about It's like A. Young musician thing for sure I feel like. I didn't feel that it makes school maybe I was too naive to see it, but never I never felt it. PRETTY PRETTY WELCOMING I mean before your career took off at. Did you have a plan? Just for like okay I'll do the college dean. Burke Lear Goto yeah I well. We were in Dallas so. I did I wanted to go to like the new school or Manhattan School Music But we stayed in state tuition costs. University of Texas has a great jazz program.

My kids are almost four years old and six. Oh. I wish I could be more create. there isn't a ton of time. but have little snippets of ideas and. Yeah it's more about how do I get them to not yell at me? Okay so. In that way it's. Yes exactly fulltime entertainer mood okay, I, see! How would you like hot Dr Lynch Again Okay Cool? SORTA okay. It's a good distraction sat okay. The the prime purpose of the the podcast at least for me kind of. Seeing the the. The machinery inside the vehicle and Always the creative process, so I'm Anne. A billion times before, but you know I like to take this approach for our viewers or listeners Where were you born? I was born in New York. Actually yeah. I think her apartment was like twenty seven in Lexington. Okay Manhattan Yeah. Adversary do you know your first musical memory? Your first childhood musical number. Probably. My Mom's records I don't know the exact i. What I remember listening to Willie, Nelson and Ray Charles. And aretha Franklin. Was a promoter. Correct you know she she does. She met my dad. She worked for promoter for short time, but not really not like term. So, she wasn't the Bill Graham of her error that she definitely was. She she had many career. She was a dancer that she broke her ankle and she was a in the theater he she worked in commercials. Behind the scenes, and then she was a real estate agent than a nurse, so she's kind of all over the place. Okay so her. Collection sort of. Seeped into you. Would what types of records those? A lot of Gospel aretha Franklin. Gospel era stuff let early Ray Charles. Country Music She's from Oklahoma. Okay, so, that was sort of in the water to 'cause I grew up in Texas we moved to Texas when I was about three. Ruin. Yeah. So, how different was that from? Wall I mean not that you would have. I don't have that. New York Memories. I'd actually my first memory is a dream. I had of playing in the playground at Washington Square Park So. Bunkers us now. I don't really remember. So even in the beginning I mean what was there. For you know like a lot of musicians come through either an older siblings record. Or you know like a cousin or someone that puts them onto it but for you like. Did you also like the music of the day like. By the time you were five or six light Madonna was a thing so like you remember like your first actual purchase outside of. Your mother's record collection. Yeah, I mean I don't think I listened to the music of the day tiles about nine or ten in the nice sort of started listening to pop radio. Oh, so you were old soul from zero to nine. Well Kinda occur. Yeah, way, do seasoning I listened to like the radio. An oldies for us in that generation, it was like nineteen fifties and sixties pop music. You go not the Beatles like not as cool as that yet, but like before that pre that you know that that's my story, but. My Dad was do up singer so I thought. The thing was that he tricked me. I thought that was the music. Of the day that's so funny. And in first grade like Music Teachers Light No. I here, the BG's here. You know that sort of thing, but I thought like Frankie Lymon teenagers was like. I thought there was like a new record wider fool, small love like that sort of thing. That's pretty funny. Yeah, that was my staff until I was like nine in the. because. My mom didn't listen to pop radio. She listened to NPR. So I didn't know about that. Staff May I had like a babysitter. WHO's into Madonna? But they were has nine. It was full on whatever was out in popular. I was into. So, what were you like? How are you relating to your friends in the area like in school and whatnot. You didn't share the same music taste. That they did. I don't even know. I mean I was in choir and school and Church. I don't remember it being weird or being feeling different. And by the time, kids were more interested in that kind of stuff, I was already listening. I think the first cassette purchase was digital underground because I liked. The humpty! Yeah I loved it. It was best thing I've ever heard. Shaq do you heal Africa Shock G. Fiona! Apple also has a hilarious story where. She when she was making a title, I think she was like getting gas and she saw like shot Jebron digital underground like lost it like disraeli. That's amazing, frigging digital, okay? You've mentioned. Played Piano Church. What type of church was this? A Methodist Church in. Suburban. Texas, it was A Nice Church, but they had. A really actually I played is saying. didn't play piano in church or but which? She was a cool choir director I. Think she was a? Maybe a former Catholic. She taught us all these Latin hymns. So! It was cool, and then you know we did like our. God is an awesome God, and then I stopped going to church after that but. Not because of the song but. It's like a mix of. It was a mix of stuff as my point throws me, everyone has their church exit his booth exactly yeah. children require a split. Okay. What should be voted? You went to You went to Booker T.. Washington Yeah High School notables so at the time or Roy is way than you yeah. It was older, but he was like the hometown hero. So, we're you school.

I mean, it's never bad to be pretty think it might depend on the person in the kind of music they're making what they're trying to put out there.
