How often do you do laundry?

Laundry? What is that? Once a month. If it’s lucky. 

What was the last movie that you really loved?

I hardly watch movies — Barbarella.

If you could re-live one year of your life, which would it be and why?

2007. The year before I moved to Nashville. Innocence, hookah, no job but to write songs and practice and a lot of family. No girlfriend.

What’s your go-to comfort food?

Mashed potatoes. No question.

Kombucha — love it or hate it?

Kombucha? Really? Like it. Love vinegar.

Mustard or mayo?

Mustard. But have learned to appreciate mayo. Fat baby!
