We’d like to know a little bit about you for our files, but we don’t like regurgitating press releases or asking the easy questions. At Tone Deaf we only ask the tough questions, so just hold still, grit your teeth, clench your buttocks and be still while we put on the rubber gloves, apply the thumbscrews, and pull out our thermometer while you open up and say ahhhhhhhhhhh… Truthful answers only or we drink your rider while you’re on stage.

Your film clips are renowned for their innovation. What are some of your favourites?
Lose You was an actual performance. For 4 days, people would come visit me in that apartment, two people were allowed in at a time and could stay for 5 minutes. from the minute the door opened i would perform my 5 minute musical. i performed that around 135 in 4 days.

I dont know the people who are in the video clip. i only saw them for that 5 minute period.
