And people would just seek me out and say, “Where can I get your music? And then pretty quickly the hobby became a career, very fortunately.” And I’d just write them back and say, “Well, I don’t really have any other music. I never thought I had the confidence or the talent to do something like this for a living, and people just started writing me and saying, “You’re wrong.” That’s what I mean, like, who starts learning a few chords on the guitar at age 30 and then thinks they’re going to be a professional musician. With “Winter” I had learned six chords on the guitar and I thought, I wonder if I can write a song that uses these six chords.The songs "Today", "Closer", "Don't Look Away" and "These Photographs" were also used on the show.
I think for almost every song I’ve ever written someone’s called and asked me, “Can we use that?And three weeks later Bill Lawrence called me and was like, “Do you mind if I use that song in this episode?” And I told him, “No, I wouldn’t mind at all.” Then the show airs, and I’m watching it at home in my apartment in New York with my girlfriend at the time, and we were pretty much screaming because they played the whole song over this really sad montage.Pretty soon, I’d write a new song for a particular gig.Then I’d demo it on a computer, and I’d burn a copy of this really sparse, minimal, just vocals-and-guitar arrangement for the show.
