An extraordinary year in many ways. How did it affect you specifically?
That’s a packed question. This year has obviously been an extraordinary one in the history of modern civilization and nobody has been untouched. For me personally, it has meant the loss of a major income stream in the form of live performances and the loss of some family members due to covid.
Where did music fit in during 2020? Does it seem important?
It feels more important than ever. Music has healing powers and so many are in need of healing.
What albums resonated this year? Can be old or new.
Bill Callahan’s Gold Record, Alain Johannes’ Hum.
If you had to pick one album to sum up this year, what would it be?
Duma – Duma
How have you got through the last 7 or 8 months?
