Ear Candy


QUESTION: I read on a blog recently that music is a big influence on your work. What have you been listening to and how does it affect what you create? Jeff Zielinski, Los Angeles, CA.

ANSWER: Jeff, having spent a portion of my life as a touring musician, music indeed plays a huge part in not only my work but my life. Music has a way of seeping into your soul and then is released through the things we do and create in our everyday lives. I’ve been listening to a lot of Alt-Country/Roots/Americana music lately. The dirty, raw, honest music of bands like Son Volt, Wilco and Centro-Matic plays well into my design/style/decorating work.

I have absolutely no idea who those bands are cause I'm livin in the 70's and earlier musically but I think your work goes well with Lynard Skynard and Hank Williams Jr...

Those bands definitely mix well with the style of Urban Prairie too...Long live Lynard Skynard!
