I learnt from Armstrong on the early recordings that you never sang a song the same way twice.
I write songs. Then, I record them. And, later, maybe I perform them on stage. That's what I do. That's my job. Simple.
I never paid attention to what was contemporary or what was commercial, it didn't mean anything to me.
A lot of people who were writing when I came through originally as a singer-songwriter have disappeared.
Large audiences did not suit my low-key approach.
