What piece of art changed your life? How did it affect you?
The melancholy and mystery of Leonard Cohen's "Famous Blue Raincoat" showed me a whole new way I could approach songwriting. I could really tell a story, use dramatic license, take it away from just my own experience. It kind of opened my eyes to the possibilities. Oh, and it's just a heartbreakingly great melody. "and Jane came by with a lock of your hair..."Heavenly!
