5 QUESTIONS FOR SABINE COLLEEN
Congrats to my friend and collaborator for releasing some new music just last month. You can enjoy "Three Words" over at Sabine's Bandcamp site. Much gratitude to them for the chance to conduct the world's shortest interview. I've been fortunate to play some lovely music with this person; looking forward to more happenings in the not-so-distant future. Seek out this soothing songsmith in the virtual realm as well as in the physical realms. In celebration of "Three Words", here are five questions... Cheers!
1. How would you describe the arch of your song in colors & shapes?
deep blue and seaweed green,
the shape ink takes when dropped into a glass of water
then that water gets poured into a rippling tidal inlet
2. Which songwriters would you say have most influenced your musical journey?
Buffy Sainte-Marie, Nick Drake, Linda Perhacs for oldies.
Some contemporary songwriter I admire are Jessica Pratt, Shana Cleveland and Lael Neale.
3. For the sake of creating new genre names, what would you describe yours as?
4. Are there perhaps any films or filmmakers that have also influenced your style of storytelling?
The Secret of Roan Inish has been my favorite film since I was 4.
It’s about selkies and the sea so it must have influenced this song.
5. What are words?
At best, words are crystals of fleeting and numinous energies of the heart
held to the light in attempt to cast prisms into the fleeting and numinous energies in another.
