Tegan (Minus Sara) Answers Hard-Hitting Questions

Tegan, of the Canadian twin-sister duo we absolutely adore, Tegan & Sara, took over their fan site’s blog Wednesday. With tons of pressure weighing on her to produce a stellar post, Tegan looks to the fans for inspiration.

“I was trying to decide over the past few days how to approach this week’s blog,” she writes. “Sara did such a fine job all year, contributing funny, smart, witty blogs and I didn’t want to disappoint. Last night,… it hit me – Q+A!”

You speak the truth,Tegan. Sara’s posts have been very entertaining and informative, but giving your fans a voice and allowing yourself to be made vulnerable by such invasive questions – GENIUS!

So, today, we salute you Tegan (and Sarah) as we post a few snip-its of your intense fan-artist Q+A (no editing has been done so as to not compromise Tegan’s natural voice):

When you and Sara are not on tour, do you hang out together?

Good question! Yes! We do hang out! But not often. This is not because there is a secret feud going on, or because we don’t like each other. Sara loves New York and Montreal. I love Vancouver and Los Angeles. Sara likes crowds and museums and I love the ocean and the sound of silence around me. Sara’s favourite thing in the world is taxi cab confessional and Jersey Shore, while I prefer the ocean and the sound of silence. But when we are together – watch out!

Do you miss touring, the fans and your road family when you are at home?

I do! I miss the fans a lot. Playing live is an experience that trumps pretty much every other element of our job. But I love to write new songs. Being creative is such a huge part of what we do. The time we have at home is precious and it’s a privilege and we soak it up as much as we can! Soon enough our nomadic spirits will take over though and we’ll be back out there playing for you all and seeing the world!

When is your new record coming out?

Another fine question! We don’t really have an answer for that yet though. At the present time we are trying to finish up a DVD to be released later this year! I think some people imagine we get off tour and just ride our ponies and fly around in helicopters to fancy restaurants all day long. While they are correct in thinking that, we are also working a few minutes a day on new songs. So, I’d expect a record sometime next year!
