Q

do you record all your live shows? they are awe inspiring... thank you.

A

thank you for saying so :). i don't record them all, but i record some of them. there's nothing like being in the room though.

Q

I noticed you're a fan of Betty Carter.. did you know her/meet her.. get to see her live?
Betty is my favorite. Saw her in Chicago once. "This is Always" is my favorite recording of hers.. yours?

how lucky you are to have seen her live! i never had the pleasure of seeing her perform nor of meeting her. i do know people who have played in her band and gone through the jazz ahead program and love hearing their stories about her. she sounded like a character!

i first got up on her with the "inside betty carter" album, which i love love love. and i also dig the one with ray charles. but i think my absolute fave is "droppin things". ESPECIALLY the song, "30 years".

check this killin performance. she was SO FRICKIN DOPE!


Q

Love the song "Until it's done". In the beginning of the second verse.. do say "Riding high where feeling is, where exactly what we fear"?. Can't wait for the MDCL collab to come out!

thanks for listening to the lyrics. writing is probably my favorite part of the process of creating music.

the lyric is actually "riding high with failing gears/we're exactly what we feared/as long as it looks cool nothing else matters"

i use the word "we" very generally here, yet it's a commentary on style over substance really...and how things we used to make fun of and parody over the years gradually became our reality.

Q

What project are you currently working on?


nia andrews responded on 10/31/2011
A

i am currently recording material for my debut album :). been a bit of a long process but an exciting one no less!
