  • Quotes

    • k-os: After the last record, I would be walking down the street and people would come up to me as if they knew me. And it felt good to be popular, I guess.

    • k-os: To use your voice in the world is the greatest responsibility of an artist. As an expressionist, I get to cleanse my emotions and thoughts through music so they don't fester and become toxic. When an artist expresses their truth honestly and with a pure heart, they can end up speaking for a myriad of people. From a very specific experience can come a general understanding and healing.

    • k-os: I am trying to be unapologetic about rules I break. Most revolutionary art ends up provoking classic ideals and it is these same classic ideals that become prisons if they go unchallenged.
