Dallas Examiner Interviews Justin Furstenfeld
Jeff Resta, the Dallas Concert Photography Examiner, interviewed Justin. They talked about the Open Book tour, the new album, Crazy Making and much more.
JEFF: I am a big fan of stripped down live music and combining different mediums, that makes it very unique. How has it been going so far?
JUSTIN: So far its been great. Its been selling out everywhere and people are showing up, I have been surprised. Its also been touching. People seeing that there is a good way to live, very different than previous tours. The point of this tour was to show there is a positive way to live. That I am not always having to be the victim. I am a survivor too. I am no longer looking for approval and there is light at the end of the tunnel.
JEFF: It’s got to be tough being in the hot seat like that. The center of attention without the band to help support. Are you enjoying it?
JUSTIN: I love it. Exactly, I love being in the hot seat. This tour is about being as honest as I can be. I am on the same level as everyone. Its different every time depending on the audience and the Q&A portion. Its just me, a couch, my guitar, my coffee and my book.
JEFF: I enjoyed reading your book. It added a lot of what your fans and I like to see with great insight into your life. It’s a huge accomplishment and shows an enormous catalog of music as well. What has this experience been like for you?
JUSTIN: It’s been challenging too. Its been hell and its been beautiful. I’ve learned how to be better.
