AAJ: Overall, when going through your discography, there's a distinctive lyrical approach, but the sound changes from album to album. How would you sum up your musical journey so far?

SV: The Beatles saw every song as an opportunity to do something unique. I'm still exploring my world of musical possibility and exploring the sounds that I hear inside. My unique 'feel' hopefully binds together the styles in my work.

AAJ: What are some of the most important lessons you have learned from music?

SV: Seems like the world is tearing itself apart these days. Music is a universal language that can bring us together. I'm living in service to that idea. And you gotta put in the time. Music takes lots of work.

AAJ: So far, you haven't recorded a solo guitar album, could you envision doing this or is the interplay with other instruments too important to you?

SV: There is more quiet, relaxing guitar music to come, as well as deeper harmonic explorations that I enjoy. A solo guitar album is definitely on the way.

AAJ: Will you be touring with the new record? Where is it possible to hear you live?

SV: I just moved back to New York and hope to set up performances later in the year. Last year I was busy playing at regional wineries and Festivals in the San Diego area where I lived.

AAJ: Do you have any other projects coming up?

SV: The 5th album is currently happening; I'm running through songs old and new and making studio demos.
