What was the first record you ever bought with your own money? 
I can’t remember if it was the very first, but I vividly remember buying Pete Yorn's musicforthemorningafter at Jack's in Red Bank, New Jersey, very early on, and it's part of the reason I'm here now.

How many unread emails or texts currently fill your inbox?
0. Obsessive compulsions require me to maintain a clean inbox at all times. If you've got thousands of bold emails in your inbox, just give me a call and I'll come over and delete them all. It'll be therapeutic for both of us. 

If your life were a movie, which songs would be on the soundtrack?
Ryan Adams has done a pretty good job of having a song for every occasion and mood I've ever encountered. He knocks out albums so quickly maybe we could even get him to score my biopic — 90 minutes of me anxiously trying to decide where to stop for lunch on tour and then realizing it's now dinner time.

What brand of jeans do you wear?
Topman had a clearance rack in my size one day, and I’ve been set ever since.

What's your favorite word? 
Nap. I find out there’s time for a nap before/after any event and my whole face lights up.

If you were a liquor, what would you be? 
Hard to say, but it would definitely be a brand for sale at the Bunghole Liquors shop, which Stephen Kellogg and I recently discovered is a real place on tour in Massachusetts.

Fate or free will?
Free will when things are going well, fate when they’re not.

Cake or pie? 
Cake when things are going well, pie when they’re not. 

Sunrise or sunset? 
I've heard nice things about the sunrise, but until I wake up early enough to actually see it with my own eyes I'm going to stick with sunsets.
