And everything soul or funk
kind of starts with that.

new love quotes:
I think it just takes one little
snowflake to start a snowball
to go down the hill. My contribution

When I was young, I had an ‘aha’
moment in church. There was a
thing called testimony service,
and somebody would sing a song,
and everyone else would join in,
finding a note where they fit.
During one of those, a light went on
in my head. In that moment,
I heard everything – Parliament,
the Staple Singers, Curtis Mayfield,
Prince – in there.

Artists can choose to take on
the tremendous amount of
responsibility we have,
or choose to ignore it.

especially for somebody like me
who is really a purist about the art.
Trying to balance the pressures of
commercialism, it’s a tightrope.
It’s a fine line between sticking to
your guns and insanity.
