    This is the first half of an extraordinary interview between Allie Farris, a fiercely talented young performer looking for the secrets of songwriting success, and one of my musical heroes, David Wilcox.

I feel privileged to have been at the right place and time to just put a microphone between these two. The interview transcript is available at thats.soundacious.com.
