ROGER ODONNELL QUOTES
I was born at home next to the piano and i´ve never been a far from one
I played with local bands and it went from there
It never seemed like a viable choice so I went to art school
It took a while. It was really difficult. I didn´t make much money
it ended up being a hard career choice. Eventually it paid off
Nice to work in a band and you build a relationships, they become like a family
I´ve always loved the chello. I like combination of piano and chello
chello is the closest instrument to the range of the human voice
I haven´t been that great at writing lyrics
I was introduced to Julia, an incredible chellist.
We only actually met once. We did everything through dropbox.
I use Vienna Symphonic Library, which allows me to vocalize and hear it all.
When I get the files back from Julia, it sounds real and live and amazing
That´s not a real piano on there btw. Its Ivory II
I love social media. I think of my fans as friends.
I say what I think so I stopped using Twitter as much
My website has sort of been overlooked.
My first solo album there were midi files on a floppy disk
The Cure publishing is always split equally with all of the members
The creative process is the same. It just depends on the instruments
I normally start with a piano
I don´t write as much in the summer because it´s nice out
Now I just have to turn it on. Just sit at the piano. I write quickly.
I don´t get writers block. If you approach it as a craft, you might run into that.
I like to challenge myself all the time. I don´t want to be comfortable.
I do love cars. I have 3 that I drive. Two Ferraris and a Porche.
I fly airplanes. I´m a pilot. It´s an incredibly relaxing sport.
When I started there was a chance to make money from it. Now there isn´t!
You gotta do it cause you love it
Do you think love is a tragedy? Yes especially right now 🙂
