It's a really cool time for artists who want to strive for a little more depth in what they want to say to come forward. We live in a very fast world right now. We've got all this media and music which is so accessible to us, it's here one minute gone the next. ---->>>

People are consuming more than ever, but I think they want a bit of honesty and depth. Adele, Gotye, Janelle Monae - they're giving you a catchy song, but it's also a challenging song at the same time. ---->>>

I feel far more connected to the whole band if I can somehow physically respond... with my body. ---->>>

I like challenging people. I love pop music that can just throw you off. ---->>>

When you work on an album for three and a half years, you're kind of ready for it to get out there. To have your songs reach people. ---->>>

I do like the idea of pulling in different producers to get new perspectives. That's what I did with Vows and I feel it just gives variety and makes for a more exciting journey for the listener. ---->>>

I have times when I doubt what I'm doing. When those moments hit, I think about how grateful I am to be able to do what I do every day. It was harder when I started because I didn't see the response, but now I'm out there playing for people and seeing them happy, which makes it all worthwhile. ---->>>

There's a vulnerability in music but you've also got to protect your sacred place and have a place you can still retire to that no one else knows about. So that's a thing I just try to balance. ---->>>

I'm turning 22, so I want to start getting into work that reflects where I'm at in life now. ---->>>

Obviously I don't really go to church any more - no time. ---->>>

My process is to be by myself when I record. It's quite an emotional performance to pull off when someone else is in the room. I prefer to go away and have my own time with it, bring it in later. ---->>>

People like Jeff Buckley, the Mars Volta and Bjork made me listen to music differently. You learn the voice is an instrument you can do crazy things with. ---->>>
