ANOTHER SOLO ALBUM IN THE FUTURE? ANOTHER PASTA SAUCE FACTORY ALBUM FOR TLA? Certainly more albums from both places, though we (the Low Anthem) are looking at new spaces for our studio.

YOU HAVE PERFORMED EVERYWHERE FROM CHURCH BASEMENTS TO THE GLASTONBURY MAIN STAGE. DO THE NERVES STILL KICK IN REGARDLESS OF CROWD SIZE? Ha, yes of course. The nerves bite no matter where I am, though I certainly have calmed down a bit since I began playing in the Low Anthem. A few years ago, I would place a vomit bucket on the side of the stage just in case there was an unfortunate incident; the ghosts took hold of my hands and jiggled them around so it was at least twice as hard to play anything (I knew very little besides clarinet at the time). Having performed so many times, I have learned how to fend off the physical responses to my nervousness, but I am afraid the mental aspect still lingers. But, I always say, its better to be nervous than to be bored.
