Brandi Carlile - “That Wasn’t Me”
AE:Are you bringing your girlfriend on the road with you?
AE:What is your fun when you’re bored on the road?
BC: Well it’s cool that she’ll be with me because she’ll get me up and off the bus, you know. She won’t tolerate sitting around. She’ll absolutely have me out going on walks and going to find a lake or a pond to fish in in something like that and on days off I go fishing. But I’m going to start getting up earlier and getting out in the towns that we’re staying in and just keep my head right. I don’t want to be in just band-tour-focus mode.
I don’t consider myself a very androgynous person, but I think [people] can sense a certain dissent or a difference in gender roles,” Carlile says. “They can sense that I’m not singing or talking about things in a traditional way. As a songwriter, it’s really important that that become a place for expression, because of what other songwriters did for me as a young gay teenager. Having those gender pronouns used in an ambiguous way made me feel like I could relate to songs that were sung by women or men. Those kinds of things being addressed creatively and politically made me feel like I could be successful and proud.
