Cris Cohen: When artists do cover songs, no matter what, you end up putting your own spin on it. You can play the exact same notes, in the exact same time, but somehow it always comes out with a little bit of your own twist. It sounds like that's how you are describing your producing.
Dwight Baker of The Wind and The Wave: Yeah, totally. I always try to serve the song and just follow the song down the path to wherever it ends up. When we first started, we had kind of a different sound than, say, record three with The Wind and The Wave. I was a little worried about that. Even record two. It's easy to make a record when you don't have any fans. And when Patty and I started making that first record, we had minus 200 fans. We didn't even have a band name. And to be signed a couple of months later was weird. It's even weirder to go, "Do people expect this record from us (again)?" You know what I mean? My decision was, "I guess, but I don't think I can do that record again. I just have to do whatever's coming out at the time."
