  • 1. What’s your perfect carry on or piece of luggage?

    Anything but four pieces of fragile musical equipment.

  • 2. What’s your go-to travel uniform?

    DUCKFEET BOOTS. They've often been my only shoes on month-long tours. I can play a show in them then go hiking the next day. Best paired with bamboo socks.

  • 3. Can’t travel without:

    NOISE CANCELLING HEADPHONES

  • 4. Oddest thing I’ve ever packed:

    I'm generally a minimalist, no-fuss packer (underwear, socks and t-shirts etc.). The oddest you might find would be a vintage microphone.

  • 5. Favorite thing to nick from the hotel room:

    A towel here and there always comes in handy on stage.
