[] So this festival brings together — it takes place at the convergence of music and spirituality and justice and the arts, and it seems to me that that convergence has been there for each of you for a long time. But music was a bigger draw, and I couldn’t pick one, to be honest with you. And I remember reading in the book that you wrote with your father — music that goes all the way through your body. So I can love a genre, but if I hear a song that has that content, I can’t separate it from the music. TIPPETT: I’ve also read you saying — talking about finding more of what you wanted in church sometimes in a smoky bar than you found in churches, which is a little bit different way to talk about sacred/secular. SALIERS: Well, that’s why we spend so much time in smoky bars, I think. But for me, I have to say that no matter what it’s called — and I’ll call it God — but to me, it’s a great benevolent spirit that’s much wiser than any of us, my belief, that is involved in the formation of things, the change of things, the evolution of things, is my whole — my life is in that spirit’s hands. I don’t believe in a puppet-master God or any of that stuff. It’s so funny because I feel like, in some ways, I wasn’t exposed to religion in that way. And I thought — I always ask this question at the beginning of my interviews, whoever I’m interviewing, quantum physicists or a musician, about the spiritual background of their childhood. Well, my dad is a Methodist minister and a theologian and he taught at Emory and Candler School of Theology. And I don’t think that any kind of music that is used to objectify or hurt any person or group of people, type of person, is a sacred practice. [] I think with the book that I wrote with my dad, we talk a lot about that, because he cut his teeth on jazz, which is deemed secular, but it really informed his musicality, which then he got the calling to faith. I just love — it’s interesting to me the spatial relationships between things, what people say, what kind of hymns they sing. I was exposed — like my great-uncle was a Methodist minister, and part of his sermon was to do magic tricks. TIPPETT: Well, I guess, one thing I mean is — I don’t know, maybe not five years from now, but 20 years from now, that might not even be a story that would be a big deal. But I think — so I want to ask that question, but also as you reflect on that, I kind of sense for each of you that music was always in there, and maybe even justice and the arts in that way. Then he focused on church music and hymnals and things like that. But in church sometimes, people pretend that they’re not, or the message is we’re not, or they’re too afraid. It was a very different exposure, and I loved that and it actually was good for me to see that.

That’s where I think all that fear of the body comes from. So once I heard African-American gospel music and was blown away — and the first time I heard it, I was scared. So anyway, we’re gonna get married, and then we’re gonna file that paperwork the next day, and then she'll get her green card if everything goes as we hope, and there you go.

I mean, I think it just goes back to control, especially controlling women. SALIERS: And the body takes you out of your head and connects you. You have to be wary of that which is different just to make sure you’re safe in your environment. And I was just thinking yesterday, my — I’m getting married next week. It’s fine, but we haven’t had the same privileges of chronology.

She liked music that was more alternative, she liked music that was more raw. And when I started to prepare to interview you, there are 100,000 articles online about you telling the story of how you came out to your parents, right?

I think she had an understanding of real pain than I did. But specifically about the power of — OK, I’ll give you an example. And I think I took what I think are good things from the church, and the gospel, and applied them to my life in a way that has worked for me. For me, it’s a cultural construct that works really well, you know? And that’s, if that’s not spiritual, I don’t know what is. TIPPETT: When you said a minute ago that Amy helped you see — helped you think differently about that relationship — can you say some more about that? SALIERS: Amy’s always just been like — I think I had ideas in my head about what was what, this is this, and this isn’t this. I really actually wish I went more, to be honest with you, ‘cause I really enjoy it. And also, as I read it, still before either of you had come out as lesbian to yourselves, much less to anyone else. Amy opened my — she was more alternative than I was, you know? RAY: I know there’s so many of them, but I know the one that works for me. And then I think you were two of the first real celebrities to be very open about your sexual orientation. She was just more evolved about all that stuff and just kind of was who she was. Because we were classically trained, and we listened to a lot of classical music and jazz and stuff like that, I had an early snobbery about... [] She didn’t say that, but — and now I feel that way more than I do the other way, you know? [] Now you really want to know what I’m gonna say, don’t you?
