Long Form Interviews
Since 2012, Minneapolis-based journalist Pamela Espeland and I have met regularly for a series of long-form interviews. These times have yielded discussions about music, personal life lessons, my faith, my upbringing, disappointments I've had as an emerging artist, the music business, reflections on fatherhood and much more. These conversations offer unique snapshots into each phase of my career, and I am indebted to Pamela for her interest in my trajectory as an artist and a person.
