Getting on stage and performing and standing under lights is such an unsettling experience— in a good and bad way— but it’s the only place I can go to feel comfortable. It’s not hard to connect with the music on an emotional level and get inside the songs. It’s odd, very vulnerable, and slightly embarrassing to be standing and singing and playing music in front of a bunch of strangers. None of us are showbiz types, or entertainers or extroverts, so when we’re performing, we close our eyes, think about the songs, and just sink into the music.
