It seems that a lot of the artists these days are image without talent. What sets you apart from that crowd?
I write all my own music, write it all. I play piano, guitar, even trombone. I've played piano since I was six or seven, guitar since I was ten or eleven.
MSJ: I understand that you are going to be in a TV series this fall?
Yeah. We filmed the pilot about a year ago for CBS. It's called "Love Monkey." It's about a guy at one of the big labels who gets fed up with the big industry and forms his own label. The big label was talking to me, and he takes me with him.  

MSJ: I hear a lot of influences from older music in your sound. Who would you say your influences are?
Actually, I listen to all new music. I'd say my influences are Ben Folds, Jason Mraz and Dave Matthews.
MSJ: What was the last CD you bought and what have you been listening to lately?
I just bought the new Jason Mraz CD and Ben Folds. I've been listening to a lot of Radiohead.
MSJ: What was the last concert you attended as a fan?
The Shins
MSJ: What has been your biggest Spinal Tap moment?
Well, there was one time when we couldn't find the stage. It felt pretty Spinal Tapped at that moment.
MSJ: With the TV show will you find time to tour for your new album?
The show will be filming in fall and early winter. Valentine's Day is when the album comes out. So, then we'll have time to go out and tour.
