"Looking back, I realize now that I shouldn’t have recorded those first few albums, I wasn’t ready, writing-wise I didn’t know what I was doing, I didn’t have a style or a direction and when that happens ,you get pushed in a direction that quite often isn’t you. My advice to any new artist is to take your time, undertake and endeavor to learn about the craft of songwriting. It is so important to know what you are doing. It was crazy and yet a fantastic learning experience. I got to interact with the killer LA 'session cats' but the project went long time-wise and way over budget. I was still experimenting, trying to find myself as a songwriter."
"I had three years to find myself. I was able to put sounds in my head down on tape and that’s what Mick (Ronson) heard. He said `I wouldn’t change a thing’ and that was the validation I was looking for. With Whomanfoursays, I was fighting to establish my fingerprint as an artist, I felt completely comfortable in my own skin. For the first time, I was actually confident about my musical direction. Musically, the album was a natural evolution of the three years of finding myself and exploring what I was really all about and finally developing my own direction, Mick was all about pushing the envelope and developing these new sounds even more, he kept urging me to dig deeper."
