I have always enjoyed spending time in New York, of course, but had never considered moving there. But then something happened -- it was like a calling, clear and undeniable. As if the stars were aligning and the spirits conspiring to get me there! I am still traveling constantly, but [the more time] I spend in New York I just fall more and more in love!
You toured in Europe last year with your last album, Time Never Dies. Can you tell us which countries you were in?
This time we had performances in Russia, Greece, Italy, Bulgaria, Poland, and Austria. We had a ball, as always. The Time Never Dies Tour marked my 15th international headlining tour. It blows my mind to think about that!
