I caught two Kal Marks performances in the span of a couple of weeks and felt compelled to get Carl on Five Questions. He kindly obliged and we linked up at his apartment on a bitterly cold night in January. We talked about panic-attack-inducing anxiety, collaborative songwriting, regrets in the wake of lost love, being on tour with a drug addict, and how conversations with friends are so precious. And yup, he answered Five Questions. Meet Carl.
