The Sound, It Resounds As a musician and writer I was wondering if there are any moments on that album that inspired you to make music eventually.
Tim Kingsbury: With that album, especially when I got it, there were certain songs I was obsessed with and then it kind of evolved over time and it was also around the same time I started playing guitar so that was a heavy influence on me. But I think there's still one song that I always pick up the guitar and play is 'Powderfinger,' just out of habit.
