“I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain
I’ve seen sunny days that I thought would never end”

Running On Empty, (1988) - Sidney Lumet

“When I was five years old and my brother River was seven, we were about to fry eggs for breakfast when it dawned on us that they were baby chickens. My family had been vegetarian for a short while and so we asked our parents what was the difference between eggs and meat? Weren’t they in fact baby chickens just as a burger had once been a cow? They couldn’t find a good argument to the contrary and so after my dad spread the last of his beloved butter on a piece of toast, the decision was made to go vegan”

“Of course there is a sadness with not seeing him in the physical world but everything I do, he is a part of. Through my music I am forever able to stay connected to my brother. We are always infinitely collaborating in spirit.


River was a bit of a guitar prodigy. He would play and I would just start singing. It was clear to my parents that I had the gift of voice and they encouraged me to pursue it. Me and my brother spent a lot of time singing round the fire at home after dinner, making little four-track demos in our room, or when we would be round at people’s houses, we’d just break out the guitar and start singing. There was definitely a connection musically.’’
