Below is a question-and-answer conducted by Highland Stage director Michael Gelfand

Q: Your life has changed a lot since your early achievements. How has success and maturity changed your approach to songwriting?

A: I’ve been doing this since I was a kid, and had my first hit in 1994, which is 23 years ago. Ten years ago I felt pressure to get my songs on radio, but it was a different climate for musicians back then. Now I’m on other side of that pressure. I have a good national following, and can play in nice theatres—which was always my goal. I wanted to be like Shawn Colvin, who’s a great singer-songwriter and storyteller, and someone with popular status who’s connected with people but still has her roots. I get to do that now.

Q: What do you hear now when you listen back to yourself and evaluate your songwriting compared what you’re writing now?

When I hear my earlier recordings, it was so important to me for everything to be perfect. But now when I write and record, there’s a very different passion and intensity then when I was writing about relationships in my twenties.

A: For me, it’s about finding the Zen of sitting down and writing. In your job as a creative person, you just have to set aside time, space, and materials to write and create things. But you have to have a lot of fun, too. I find a lot of purpose performing for kids and their families. I like playing songs that tell slightly whimsical stories.

I also think it’s fun to play kids songs in my grownup shows. It’s a sophisticated but slightly silly feeling to hear a whole crowd listening and laughing together. When I play songs from my early records it sometime feels like I’m making a presentation standing in front of a piece of art. But when people gather around to hear a new story about a disappointing pancake, that’s different. Summer camp songs are a part of who I am, and performing that music in small theaters is where I can make a magical connection.
