What is your name and where are you currently?
Chase Cohl. I am in Laurel Canyon, in Los Angeles.
Are you where you normally live?
I normally split my time between Los Angeles, New York City & upstate New york.
What are you currently reading?
I usually have a few books on the go at once. Currently it’s Mating in captivity, by Esther Perel, which has been on my list forever, and a collection of Federico Garcia Lorca poems.
What are you currently watching?
I’m finding that I hardly have the attention span to watch much of much, honestly, but I binged the entire season of Normal People in one night like a lunatic. Also, Mrs. America is fantastic.
What are you currently listening to?
Depends on the day. Bobby Charles or Augustus Pablo in the morning, The Band, Dolly Parton or Alton Ellis at night.
I don’t like to listen to a lot of modern stuff while I’m working on my own music, either it influences me too much, or brings up feelings of defeat & inadequacy. Both are shit.
What have you been eating the most? Do you have a recipe to share?
A comical amount of fresh fruit, variations of oats, spicy pickles, labneh on everything, about 85 cups of Earl Grey per day.
I spent the first month or so adapting "healthy versions" of all my Mum’s baked goods recipes, but had to cool it on that before my trousers stopped doing up completely.
How are you moving your body/exercising?
I hike through the canyon every morning with my dog, Papa, & do zoom pilates classes with my favourite teacher here & a group of friends 5-6 days a week. It helps me to be held accountable.
If you’re buying anything, what is it?
Fancy cheeses, weird pottery from the craft section of Etsy, tiny slices of recording gear as I’ve been building a makeshift home studio.
