Quotes from the Interviews

"I'm going to do what I want to do because I think that it's beautiful, and when I do things that are beautiful people will connect with it, and not really worry about, you know, what somebody from some newspaper that I don't read, and what they're going to say about it. It's silly to be beholding to critics but I think often as an artist, especially an artist in the public sphere, you can fall into that trap."
-- Tom Goss

JD: As an artist and performer you were out of the closet from the get-go, any thoughts about that now?

Josh: "It's still my ambition to just remain who I am, you don't want to change yourself, and at first you kind of put yourself in a corner as an out artist, but at the end of the day people are going to appreciate that about your honesty. And I have no regrets or anything other than to say that's who I am, and that's what I'm going to continue to do, and I'm not going to shove it in your face."
-- Josh Duffy

JD: I like that these are adult gay themes.

SD: "They are...that's one of the things when Matt and myself were writing these things was just about...not forcing a song, just writing about the experiences that we had, and that we knew. And if you're an adult, you're going to experience adult things, and I think that being completely open and honest in your music really sends out a message that people can access, and can understand, and can connect with." -- Samuel Damewood, of Fuzz Face

JD: How do you think being so lyrically gay in your songs has affected your music career?

ML: "I think it's actually catapulted it to a level where I don't think I would have been. Just for me being out has given me a huge fan base. If I wasn't out, or if I was just rapping about...whatever, the main stream stuff I don't think people would perceive me as a talented artist who could have that longevity. I can't say all my fans are gay, but the majority of them can relate to me, and I have that longevity with them. " -- Mélange Lavonne
