"In my own life, music has been such a powerful force, and I know that's the case for a lot of people....I've seen how music can give people the strength to change. After years of witnessing that, it's become more of a focus for me to write songs that really count."
"It's been fun to try to get better at putting my feelings into words and having it work. It's very therapeutic being able to put your experiences into your art, especially if you can do it in a way that helps other people, where people can relate to it and feel like they're invested in it as well."
Signed to A&M Records in 1996.
