ZanaD: What type of music do you play?

JC: A concoction of soul/pop/blues/and singer-songwriter


ZanaD; What is the best advice you have for people who want to break into the music industry?

JC: Austin City Limits music festival post 9pm


ZanaD: What inspires you to write music?

JC: I’m not quite sure.   I really couldn’t tell you where it comes from.  All I know is that I can’t force it when it’s not there, and I can stop it when it is.


ZanaD: Whats the song you need to listen to when your feeling down?

JC: That depends.  Maybe some Eddie Vedder?  Hard Sun always makes me feel like a conquerer.


ZanaD: Whats your favorite band?

JC: The Raconteurs


ZanaD: Whats your favorite song?

JC: Piano Man by Billy Joel is one of my favorites.  Also Sweet Baby James by James Taylor because it reminds me of my Dad – The coolest guy I know 🙂


ZanaD: Who is your hero?

JC: A survival knife, a sleeping bag, and a pen & pad.


ZanaD: If you were trapped in a room what three people would you want to be with?
