About the time he and his future wife Cherry Seaborn had a surprise dinner with Beyoncé and Jay-Z the night after their first date:
“I had learned ‘Empire State Of Mind’ for a Live Lounge. And then Jay-Z and Beyoncé came to a concert I did in Brooklyn. And they said to me: “Come to this restaurant with us later”. So I went to this restaurant and then my friends were in town. Actually my current wife was there too. It was the day after our first date. And she was there with my friend Martha and this guy, Foy Vance. So we went for dinner and then we went to this bar and I remember a guitar passed between me and Foy. And I remember playing ‘Empire State of Mind’. Five of us in a room with Jay-Z and Beyoncé. I gave Beyoncé a Jägerbomb“
What is a Jägerbomb? An explosive cocktail made by dropping a shot of Jägermeister into an energy drink, typically Red Bull: D
On the engagement night:
“My wife and I have a date. It’s a strict date night every single week. And it doesn’t matter who’s in town or who wants to see us, it’s always this one night of the week and we go out and our rule is we can’t talk about our baby. We need to talk about each other and catch up because if you spend … as a parent, you spend so much time arguing about being a parent that you forget who you were before. So we have one night a week where we are what we were before“.
On why he doesn’t use the phone:
“I always come back to reality when I go out with friends and you are having a conversation with them, and then all of a sudden they start texting someone else and having another conversation. And the reason I got rid of it was that I did too. And I feel it’s good to be in touch with people, and especially nowadays when you can’t see people and you’re in isolation and blah, blah, blah, blah. Things like FaceTime and Zoom are really important, but they shouldn’t detract from everyday interaction. If we were having a conversation right now and I’m still talking to you, but I start texting … I just think it’s rude, right? You are not in the moment. And I find that every time I think I should pick up a phone, I find myself in such a situation. The other day I played my album to a friend of mine and he texted the whole time. And I felt like he wasn’t actually listening to the record and was engaged in another conversation“.
