  • Stevie Wonder - Innervisions

    Fantastic music, very organic. I really like the synthesizers he uses on most of the songs ("Visions" is my favorite). And his voice transports me where no other artist can.

  • Stevie Wonder - Music of my Mind

    I love this cover with his sunglasses. There's always those synthesizers and that's when I first discovered the Moog. But he experimented with so many things... I think "Girl Blue" is my favorite song on the record, I actually used it as inspiration for "Say You'll Go" on "The ArchAndroid".

  • Stevie Wonder - Songs in the Key of Life

    "Love's in Need of Love Today" continues to make me cry. Everything is extraordinarily rich, spiritually. We have eighteen songs on "The ArchAndroid", there are twenty-one on "Songs In The Key Of Life", and we've done a lot of research into how Stevie Wonder has organized such complex material to pace the album.

  • David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars

    I did a cover of "Moonage Draydream". This record was totally on point and Bowie's voice touches me. It's also a great concept album: the story, the sixteen tracks, the diversity of the instruments assembled... I'm an author and I don't conceive of music without a form of theatricalization.

  • Lauryn Hill - The Miseduction Of Lauryn Hill

    When I got my first cheque 'The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill' had just come out so I bought two of those CDs. I had a feeling I would wear out one and I wanted a back-up
