NPR Segment and Writing

During our segment on NPR yesterday, they were very curious about 2 songs on our album Qe2 and Main Street venting blues. This is funny because when Kyle and I recorded the album in Montreal, those were the 2 songs that we were considering cutting but ultimately decided otherwise. I think this is an experience that many artists go through which is that you do your best with your work but ultimately we don´t know what people will find interesting.

I am reminded of this quote by Melanie:

“My idea about songs is that once you write them, you have very little say in their life afterward. It’s a lot like having a baby. You conceive a song, deliver it, and then give it as good a start as you can. After that, it’s on its own. People will take it any way they want to take it.”
