Musicians can run this state better than politicians. We won't get a lot done in the mornings, but we'll work late and be honest.
Duke Ellington was famous for his very original harmonic patterns.
There's a persona that musicians carry with them. I like to find what's under the persona.
Hanson has rapid female fans, which I'm completely proud of, but a lot of fans are a contingent that have grown up with us really — our peers. There's younger fans. More and more guys are Hanson fans, musicians or kind of guys who were into a Beatles record.
My musicians are my friends.
I'm always going to get more of a charge playing Chicago than I will Duluth or some place like that. Just because of the history and the people there are way more knowledgeable than a lot of other cities. It's an amazing music scene with some great bands and great musicians.
I love musicians. I think artists are the most amazing people because they're constantly creating beauty for the world. With all the crazy stuff going on in the world, then there's artists reminding us of our humanity and reminding us of our heart and soul and what really matters.
