"Life is serious, but I do think that God wants us to enjoy the things He's given us, like music."
"The way you get the Extreme's attention, is to be extremely passionate about whatever it is you are passionate about. I am passionate about God, about Jesus, and what His influences do to me. It's what accepting God's grace has done to me."
I know enough about the record business to know it takes a lot of people's hearts and a lot of people's efforts and it's by no means one person. It's about recognizing that even though there might be one artist up there whose picture is on the cover, who's receiving that Grammy or Dove, it takes a whole army of people to make something like that come about. It's about having people around you who will tell the truth.
Diverse is who I am. Every record I've made is sort of all over the place. It's just part of what I love to do. Diversity is like my favorite word right now because I just love the challenge of putting things together that people don't think should go together.
