In New Orleans, we celebrate everything. It's probably the only place you'll see people dancing in a funeral home.
When we're ready to do the dress rehearsal, we'll rehearse in the dark. No lights. The reason why I do that is because I don't want the band to rely on me for anything. 'Cause anything can happen - I might stop singing or unplug the mic, just so everybody knows: Keep going, no matter what.
Life would be pretty boring if I didn't explore. It's about letting my ears take me on an adventure to soak in everything I can.
