Questions & Answers with Gary Marks

 

>> Back to Q & A with GARY

 

How do you reconcile your family life with your writing?

“It’s not exactly reconcilable. I’d probably write a lot more songs if I were living alone. But I don’t like the trade-off because I also love my wife and kids! Besides, writing is about recording the changes in your life, not changing your life so that you can write.

So instead, I try to get to the piano and the guitar most every day and keep growing on some level, then one day I go into this ‘other space’ for reasons unknown and write a bunch of songs in 48 hours with no sleep, or something like that – a whirlwind thing where it seems like nothing can go wrong and I’m just kind of plugged in. Then I call the band, and during the rehearsals I’m back to being a full-time musician again instead of just a rock ‘n roll dad. I learn and re-learn not to force things to happen. Everything has its cycle.”
