I think some people record songs and make records a certain way to cater to radio. If you're born to make commercial music that's cool. But if you're born to not make commercial records, maybe you're meant to cater to another market.
I'm real comfortable and content with the direction my music's taken. I'm happy about the things that've gotten me here: a real strong knowledge of songs and determination, not ever giving up, just working as hard as you can.
There are peaks and valleys in anything and that is especially true for the music business. It is very inconsistent. But if you are wise, you can let those downs really bring you to another level of your personality.
