I once had the great pleasure of interviewing Andy Cabic, folk-rock singer and lead member of the band Vetiver. Like so many of us on the other side of listening to beautiful music, I asked, What inspires you? His response was simple and concise. And to this day I still carry it with me. He replied: Inspiration isn’t limited or predictable, and it doesn’t feel the same each time it happens. Although it’s a familiar feeling, it catches me by surprise every time.
A champagne toast to being surprised every single time.
