Audio / Luke Grimes talks about the difference between his two jobs -- acting and music.


Luke Grimes (difference between acting and music) OC: …someone else’s. 1:16

“The one big way that they’re different is that, you know, there’s nothing to hide behind with the music.  I feel like, you know, with the other job getting to know me was never part of the job.  The point was that you didn’t get to know me, that you could believe me as something else and the more you get to know me maybe the less believable that is.  So I think a lot of – you know a lot of mystery is a good thing for people who play characters versus the music is way more personal and it’s my words coming out of my mouth most of the time versus someone else’s.  And the job here really is to let people in to the point where maybe they can relate and realize that it’s not – you know it’s not just them.  We’re all human and we all go through things.  And that’s the kind of music that I’ve always liked and the stuff that has always been important to me has been stuff that made me feel like we’re all kind of in this together and music is such a human thing and a shared experience.  And any kind of story can be that but the actual, the voice is my own rather than someone else’s.”
