A fansite for the Chicago garage-rock band, Empires.
"The transition from writer to singer is the point where I collide with resistance head on. It’s one hell of an impact because writing is my true passion, and I sometimes feel that singing is like a job. It takes a clash of the two for me to effectively do what I do. If I just wrote all day and I never sang the melodies, I’d be in my room the rest of my life. Unheard. It takes discipline to create a “space” for writing and performing to occupy. When the ring is only occupied by one, there’s no fight, and no song. So I win the battle just by fighting. I wouldn’t have it any other way."
