Even with the info on Powers's personality that's been made public (to add to the pile, his favorite movie is Cast Away), he's wary about people thinking that they know him well after only using interviews and songs as guides. "I would say music is the most powerful thing to try to relate to someone with, but it's only a small portion of who someone is. Those songs are a big part of them, but there's still so much stuff that goes deeper. I don't know if we ever fully know people."

The drummer of the Lumineers, the folk trio who experienced an outrageously fruitful 2012, is talking to me two days before appearing on the January 19 Saturday Night Live, but he doesn't sound convinced that his band have crossed the fame threshold.
