What do you listen to in your free time?

I honestly love all different kinds of music. I listen to a lot of classical music, and I also love Jay Z. I love a lot of R&B artists; I love Beyoncé and Mary J. Blige. A younger band that came up recently called the Belle Brigade, I love them. Patty Griffin rereleased an old record called Silver Bell, I think. Amos Lee, just bought his new record. But I really like, I like house music, R&B, rap, folk. Just about anything, except for smooth jazz. I have an iPad set up on my counter, so I can look up recipes and play music at the same time.

What's your impression of music festivals today? Do they have the same impact they did before?

I think it's one of the best ways to listen to live music. Typically, it's cheaper than going to buy all tickets for every artist that you could see at a festival. And, to me, it's just grand being outside, just with a bunch of other people who are totally into music — festivals are awesome. We just came from a couple of festivals in Canada, and those are really cool too. They're just different from American festivals. Their audiences are quiet; they're really intent on listening, but they're very exuberant in their response and passionate about listening to music, and I enjoy that experience — both as a concertgoer and as a musician.

What should we look forward to most about your show at Lauderdale Live in December?

We heard Lyle Lovett is playing, and we're big fans of his. But also there's Shovels & Rope, Amy's a huge fan of theirs, so that's cool. We have an artist that's more well-known and then an artist that's more up-and-coming. It's our first time playing this festival, which is always fun. And then, we're gonna be playing with our band, and we won't have played with them in several months. We're excited to be reunited with them. I'm psyched; I'm really looking forward to it.
