do you miss something?

In this Studio Talk, I'm talking about the questions I'm answering as I stand at my current gateway and exploring things like missing myself as a fiction writer, letting go of dreams and picking them back up again, time and energy management, compensation for work, the weirdness of money, pretending to be like other people, the advice I would give my younger self.

6 days in L.A.

I've been dreaming about L.A. since around about middle school, and Tracy, who has been several times to record music, already knew he loved it there.

When we started planning our trip, we decided to stay in Laurel Canyon. The history of this area, the people who lived here, the music that was made, the way culture and history was informed by it - that's what drew us in and I'm so glad we chose the Canyon as our home base. Nothing could have been more perfect for us.
