Thank you for this post and for your music. I’m really looking forward to hearing your new album as I’ve been a fan since I saw you on The Voice (and then found a Meg and Dia album in a record store after). I hope you keep doing it, as often as you can. You’ve inspired me through your music and writing to keep writing and making music myself.
As for “success”, you’ve never struck me as the type who’d be happy with mainstream success (I could be wrong, as I’m not you, obviously) but could and I hope will be able to make a living making your music. I don’t know if you know who Crystal Bowersox is, but she’s another musician I really like and admire and she’s often said that NOT winning American Idol was one of the best things that ever happened to her. She’s now making a living touring and making music but isn’t all over the charts. You two seem a lot alike; incredibly talented, wonderful people who aren’t necessarily made for the Top 40 but for something more authentic. I really hope you find something like that; I’ll be one of the many cheering for you!
