Monika: Today it is my pleasure and honour to interview Mina Caputo, an American singer, the lead singer and a founding member of the New York heavy metal band Life of Agony. Please redraft the introduction if I missed or twisted something. Hello Mina!
To me spirit has no gender. I truly identify with spirit, or consciousness, which is all energies, all knowing, and all not knowing. So to place myself inside of a boxed word(s) or language doesn't really sit well with me.
Monika: In “Runaway Girl” you run away from hatred, violence and murder but you admit that “the future seems brighter”. Do you mean transphobia? Do you think that the future will be brighter soon for transwomen?

If you don't sound like Pepsi or Starbucks they're not interested. Besides, I make music because I have to. Not because I’m chasing fame. Or riches. Been there, done that. And turned my back on it all in 1996.
My ego has eroded down to a grain of sand. I just want folks to love themselves. And spread love. And give with no expectation for a return trade.
