I really think that that is a huge thing for a lot of listeners today. People need to feel that their musicians are right there, speaking to them, and that you’re that artist.
Jeff Buckley once said; “Music comes from a very primal twisted place. When a person sings, their body, their mouth, their eyes, their words, their voice says all these unspeakable things that you really can’t explain but that mean something anyway. People are completely transformed when they sing or when they make love. But it’s a weird thing; at the end of the night, I feel strange because I feel I’ve told everybody all of my secrets." -In Your Speakers.
