Say I go off and do this thing and no one really cares. If you are doing something and working your ass off and no one is paying attention, but you’re happy with it, can that be enough? It turned out the answer is “yes.” This is something I will continue to do for the rest of my life. It was cool to be a performer, but I realized I am a songwriter and there is something about performing that is different when you are sharing a song you have written. My vision of success involves the artistic aspect; the feeling of playing a festival is not the same as the feeling of writing a song.
