Blood on the Tracks | Bitch Media

31.8.15

Blood on the Tracks | Bitch Media: In my last album, Running for the Drum, [I had a song] called “No No Keshagesh,” which means “greedy guts.” It’s the name of a puppy we used to have who ate all his food and then wanted to eat everyone else’s food too. The song focuses on the issue of environmental greed from all points of view and is about contemporary issues from a Native perspective. So it does come naturally to me. I’m lucky enough to retain a kind of kindergarten sense of play when it comes to music and the arts. I learned early that in music you can say things you want to and that there are a lot of things you can do in music. I never had the misfortune of going to music school and being told, “No, you can’t do that.” In fact, I’m dyslexic in music and cannot read music on the page. It would be like writing with my left hand. I mean, I can write for an orchestra, but I can’t read it back the next day. So I do it by ear, like many other musicians.
