How long have you been a Twin Peaks fan? What was your first experiences with the show?
I probably started watching it about 6 years ago. I tried to do a Twin Peaks night with some friends but we would always just get drunk and it would turn into a dance party (this was before I quit drinking). So I decided to just watch it myself. It was actually right after I first moved to Seattle and I was living in my bass player’s basement. He had a big screen tv and surround sound so that was pretty awesome.
What are some similarities with the characters we styled you as? Biggest Differences?
Audrey is almost the exact opposite as me. I am really drawn to her for that reason. She is sexy and careless and dangerous and also very ladylike in the way she dresses and composes herself. She has a very devil-may-care attitude and she knows how to use her sexuality to her advantage. I, on the other hand, tend to look like one of the teenage boys from the movie Detroit Rock City on any given day, and I only know how to flirt if you count nervous eating and fart jokes as flirting.
What past projects are you associated with?
When I first moved to Seattle I was in a band called Star Anna and The Laughing Dogs. For the past two years I’ve been pursuing a solo career. I’ve had a few different band line-ups, as well as my first solo album, Go To Hell, come out. I used to play drums in a punk band in high school. We were No Continuous Standing. We always took third place in the talent shows.
What do you have in store for 2015? What can we look forward to?
I’m currently working on a few different recording projects. I’m also hoping to get the ball rolling on a band I’ve been working on for years, The Soft Offs. I’ve been writing songs for that band and I’ve finally got the players for it!
I put together a spring tour with Jason Dodson (The Maldives), it’s almost two months long. It’ll head down the West Coast, through the South, up to the Midwest and back to Seattle. I’ll have official dates up on my website soon. It’s just gonna be us and my dog, Forest. A lot of the tour has ended up being house parties, which to me seems like the best way to do it. It’s such a wonderful, intimate feeling and the people really want you to be there. I’m also hoping to get two EPs out this year. One of which I’m working on with Troy Nelson (The Young Evils) as producer. My biggest goal this year is to take as much into my own hands as I can. See how far I can get myself. So far, so good!
