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!!
This record is emotional, heartfelt, and moody.
What is your favorite part about being an artist? Is it songwriting, performing, recording, something else?) Tell us why.
My favorite part about writing this record was taking a part of my life and making it into a live, living piece of art to be admired by the world.
Can you tell us what being in the recording studio is like for you?
Being in the studio for this record was very challenging for me. I can remember when I first starting writing this song in my bedroom at 2 O'Clock in the morning. I still have tear stains on the original journal page because this was a piece where I had to really dig deep into my emotions. When I recorded the vocals in the studio is was hard not to get all choked up since the story has such a powerful message.
Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing?
I'm always writing and making music. I enjoy getting inspired by the world around me.
Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why?
Taylor Swift. I really admire that she is an advocate for artists rights to own their work and the fact that she is re-recording her first six albums to prove her point is very bad-ass, what can't she do?
Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it?
This one, "Pretend You Still Love Me". It's about losing that one person who you cared about very much and the damage that stays with you until this day.
Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year?
Let's just say, this is not the end. I'm gonna keep going no matter what, I don't need anybody's permission.
