Keep Art Alive :: The 10 Questions Project :: Featuring Brendan James
1. What music (or other art form) inspires you when you create your art?
I’m a sucker for great movies… love a big drama or well done documentary. They usually steer me straight to the piano.
2. Long distance road trip: what three people do you invite along (fictional or non-fictional, dead or alive)?
Jack Kerouac, Mike Meyers, and Justin Timberlake.
3. What is your favorite breakfast cereal?
Boring answer but granola. Before I cared about nutrients it was Pops mixed with Apple Jacks.
4. What is one thing that is hanging on your bedroom wall?
A painting of boat, by my close friend, in bright but bodeful waters.
5. What smell/scent evokes strong memories for you?
Anything apple in the oven takes me back to fall days, messing around in NH, knowing my mom just made another apple crisp.
6. Coffee or tea?
Both are staples. Coffee off tour (Trader Joes french roast), and tea on tour (PG TIPS or ThroatCoat).
7. What has been the most impactful compliment, or criticism, you have ever received?
Probably from the mentor who started me on my songwriting path.. he said my first song was very special (it was not).
8. Three words that describe you?
pensive, snarky, hopeful.
9. What is/was your cartoon character crush?
Easy question, Ariel.
10. The world is ending in ten minutes and you get to listen to one, and only one, song: Which song?
Shelter From The Storm, Bob Dylan
