When I was 8 yrs old I wondered off from my parents at a botanical gardens and sat down on the rail of a bridge and I started singing while watching the ducks below. I didn't notice a crowd gathering behind me. When I stopped singing they all started applauding and it scared me so bad I almost jumped in with the ducks...
When I was 16, I was singing in a theater and the spot lights were so bright I couldn't see very well and walked off the stage into the band pit!
I feel instruments are simply an extension of my inner self. I have never named any of them.
