Your house is burning down and you can grab only one thing — what would you save?
I'd save my acoustic guitar. It's a 1930s Hensel parlor … I'd be devastated to lose it.

If you weren't a musician, what would you be?
I'd be a hermit/carpenter and I would be living in the woods somewhere alone. If I could be an Olympic tree climber, that would be neat, too.

If a song started playing every time you entered the room, what would you want it to be? 
"Gangsters Paradise"

What is the one thing you can’t survive without on tour? 
Coffee. Very important in the mornings, and keeping me energized. Touring can be very tiring.

If you were a car, what car would you be? 
I'd be a dark green '70s Mercedes Benz.  

Who is your favorite superhero?

Vinyl or digital?

Dylan or Townes? 

Summer or winter?
