If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see that I spend a lot of time with my daughter. We kick it in the studio, go out to dinner and even skate together. I read with her all the time—well, now she mostly reads to me. Haha. Right now her favorite book series is Judy Moody. This is one of our top bedtime reads.
I enjoy reading, but I don’t really get a lot of time to sit down and read books. I tend to read magazines mainly when I’m in the studio, at the airport or traveling. Billboard is like the music industry’s bible. Lately, I’ve had to start paying attention to the charts more, to stay current on the business of music. Thankfully, there’s usually a copy laying around at every studio I record at.
I recently bought the Haim cover at the airport. They’re from Los Angeles and are tight as fuck! Y’all always have good articles.
