Let’s go Beyond the Mic your dad had a strong influence on you becoming a musician. Talk about the things he taught you?
Were you ever able to see your dad play out on tour?
Every musician growing up wants to have a # 1 song, or go out on tour. All you wanted, since you were 12 was to have a Fender signature bass. How did it feel to have your name on one?
You went to the LA County High School for the Arts. What do you remember about your time there?
Since you brought up your all Catholic school band Entropy…
Are you still in contact with them.
You’ve played with a who’s who of stars, Cher, Veruca Salt, Moby, Pink… why was this time the right time to go out on your own?
So as you started to record in your hotel rooms, where did inspiration hit you, where did Chasing Ghosts come from?
On social media, you talked about finding a high school notebook talking about music theory. How did that one lesson from your high school bass teacher help you today?
My son is studying music at the conservatory of music at University of Cincinnati, where have you found your success originated from, your schooling or from life on the road?
Eva you’ve been a teacher at rock & roll fantasy camp, how does sharing your music and teaching help you as you help others?
