Pretty soon, I’d write a new song for a particular gig.
Then I’d demo it on a computer, and I’d burn a copy of this really sparse, minimal, just vocals-and-guitar arrangement for the show.
And I think that I like her, 'cuz she tells me things I don't want to hear, Medicinal tongue in my ear. I have also thought of the lyrics to Masochist along those lines as well.
However, you could just as easily speculate that she sings the song "Masochist" from a male's point of view, or that she is singing a quote said by someone else, and the audience doesn't get to know the inside story.
I’m not a radio artist so it’s not like any of my songs are being shoved down people’s throats for 50 rotations a day on pop stations. I feel like every one of my fans feels a little bit of ownership when it comes to me and my music, because they had to work a little bit more to find me.
I think for almost every song I’ve ever written someone’s called and asked me, “Can we use that?
(Example: in the Dixie Chicks song "Top of the World", the lead singer sings from the point of view of first her "father" and ultimately the point of view of all parents who have neglected to love their children.
But that’s all just icing on the cake for Radin, whose unexpected career didn’t even begin until he first picked up the guitar at age 30(! He’s come a long way since then – he’s about to release his seventh album , which drops on January 27, and he’s currently doing what he does best: delivering stirring live sets of his heart-rending tunes. I guess I fall into using metaphors for my relationships with what I’m seeing around me, whether it’s the weather or objects in front of me or what a room feels like that I’m in, you know, something like that.
And people would just seek me out and say, “Where can I get your music? And then pretty quickly the hobby became a career, very fortunately.
” And I’d just write them back and say, “Well, I don’t really have any other music. I never thought I had the confidence or the talent to do something like this for a living, and people just started writing me and saying, “You’re wrong.” That’s what I mean, like, who starts learning a few chords on the guitar at age 30 and then thinks they’re going to be a professional musician. With “Winter” I had learned six chords on the guitar and I thought, I wonder if I can write a song that uses these six chords.
” And I’d just say, “Okay.” One of those weird serendipitous kind of things and I got really lucky to be in the right time at the right place.
Well that immediate thing that happened right away made me decide to throw all my energy into writing songs.
