LA has a diverse cast of characters. Whether it's the characters with stirring stories or interesting occupations or the people who are just simply characters, this town has them all. In an effort to get to know some of those characters a little better, we've created "Seven Questions with..." If you have a suggestion for a future Seven Questions subject send us an email.

Today's subject is William Faith.

Faith alongside Monica Richards are Faith and the Muse, an innovative highly regarded and well-respected band in the Underground community. Since the duo formed in 1993, they have released six albums, including their most recent, ankoku butoh, which was released in October 2009 and have been touring all over the globe winning over fans with their incredible stage presence and theatrical performances. On Saturday, the icons of the Underground kick off their 40 cities in 40 nights tour in Los Angeles at Bar Sinister.

LAist had the chance to chat with William, a native of Los Angeles, about their upcoming tour, musical influences, interest in permaculture and much more.
