For fans who have never heard your music, can you pick three words to describe it?! If three words just aren't enough then tell us more!!
Inspiring, uplifting, and powerful.
What is your favorite part about being an artist? Is it songwriting, performing, recording, something else?) Tell us why.
The best part about being an artist is having the power to change people's lives and to put a smile on their faces whenever they are having a bad day and to make their heartbreak feel less isolating and make their insecurities shrink.
Can you tell us what being in the recording studio is like for you?
Being in the recording studio is my safe space. I feel the most inspired and creative when I'm in the studio because I can record new lyrics over and over again in different ways and there is no judgement on what sounds good or bad because my producer and I have a great relationship and we support each other.
Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing?
That's hard to say because I'm working on new music all the time! But when I'm not, I like to go on runs in the park, go to restaurants with my friends, and play with my dog.
Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why?
There are so many, but right now it's Taylor Swift. She is an advocate for making sure artists are compensated fairly and she shows compassion and generosity to other artists and her fans.
Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it?
Definitely "Where You Goin'?" with my old band 'Nigel & Evan'. It was a time of heartbreak for me and the lyrics came from my own personal experiences and feelings and it helped me get over it quicker and made me move on.
Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year?
There is always time for new material and there will be plenty of it in the upcoming year.
