Aimee Mann - June 2006

Aimee Mann

Busy writing new songs, recording a Christmas album and preparing for an acoustic tour that brings her to Madison’s Barrymore Theater on June 24th - singer-songwriter, independent label executive Aimee Mann found just enough time to participate in the following MAXIMUM INK interview.

MAX INK: Your songs typically carry strong narratives, suggesting you might be a voracious reader or avid movie buff.
Aimee Mann: I used to read a lot but not so much anymore...maybe because I live in L.A. and all the time I would ordinarily spend reading I find I'm stuck in the car on the freeway. I have more opportunities to read on the road, but I'm really too lazy to get out of the house to go to a movie. More often than not I just find myself watching endless Law and Order reruns...and hardly ever being able to keep up with the plot twists.

MI: You were born and educated on the East Coast but have lived on the West Coast for years.
AM: It can be tough living in L.A. because it's so spread out and there is very little public transportation. I really miss living in a town where you can run into people you know...that pretty much never happens here. You have to work really hard to spend time with friends, which doesn't allow for much spontaneity. Also, being that it's an industry town, and the industry is all about appearances, you are surrounded by a certain amount of narcissism that can be quite disquieting. But there are a lot of really great, creative people living here.
 
MI: You've played music professionally for over twenty years and in many ways have been a pioneer for women and independent musicians. What have been the biggest changes in the industry since you started?
AM: When I started out, female artists were considered a novelty and I don't see that attitude anymore. That has been a huge change. I think the business as a whole has really changed too...it almost seems to be collapsing at this point. The big labels have all merged into one giant label, but it seems like that is allowing smaller indie labels to come into their own. Certainly technology has led to enormous changes...record stores are disappearing, and CDs are becoming a thing of the past. Really, almost everything has changed radically.

MI: What sort of set list can we expect on this tour - new songs, old songs, Til Tuesday songs?
AM: This tour is more a chance to play my songs in a completely stripped-down form, to get away from the rock band and to play in a much more intimate setting. I usually play songs from all my solo records, but I don't play any Til Tuesday songs really...it's more a matter of choosing songs that I both think are good songs and will come off well in the acoustic set-up...most of the Til Tuesday songs I just don't think are as good as more recent ones.

MI: Last year’s Forgotten Arm revealed you to be a boxing fan. How did this interest develop?
AM: A friend got me interested, and once I started doing it, I was hooked. Now my bass player and I both box, and we sometimes work out together on the road.

MI: A lot of your music is reminiscent of the sixties and the seventies when melody and craftsmanship were at a premium. Why do you think music was so good back then and will we ever be able to do anything but reinvent the wheel?
AM: I don't know, I think there is some really good music out there...I'm very influenced by stuff from the 60's and 70's because that's probably the first music I heard when I was just starting to be aware of music...but there are always great, amazing and original musicians out there...it's just a matter of finding them

MI: What do you do to get away from it all?
AM: Boxing is pretty much my main love when I'm at home. I spend so much time on the road that I'm not that interested in traveling for fun, so I don't usually take vacations.

MI: You are married to songwriter Michael Penn who is the brother of actor Sean Penn who is married to actor Robin Wright. What Christmas is like at your house?
AM: A lot quieter than you'd think
