Creatively, it's just fun, to get together with people that I would otherwise be drinking beer with, and just write a song. And it's really nice to just be part of a group of people and not have to carry the whole thing.

I've always written [music]. I've always played the piano. And until recently-- with Metric being a touring band-- that's what I did. I'd be at home, usually hiding in some room playing the piano. It just made sense that I would finally release some of this music. Friends sort of encouraged me to do so.
