What is your connection to the South?
I moved to Nashville, Tennessee at the beginning of 2010 after I flipped a penny against Tampa, Florida, which was tails. The coin landed on tails and I chose Nashville anyway because Florida really scares me in an arcane, Tropicana orange juice sort of way. Nashville is just an arm of the American South so it is difficult for me to speak about my relationship to the entire region; however, Middle Tennessee has a very transcendental energy about it that stuck honey to my bones and cemented who I am as an artist today. There are magnificently creative people there in Nashville who are willing to collaborate on things other than music, though there is plenty of that. There is always somebody receptive to discussions that peel on and on and sort of ash away into little butterflies of tail end thought. I’ve never had these sort of conversations or relationships anywhere else.
