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!!
Truthful, Insightful, Meaningful
When you are writing a song, where do you draw inspiration from? Or what topics do you like to sing about?
I love to write about love and social message issues. Social messages are truly important right now. I love to write songs that make people think.
Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing?
I love working out, dancing, reading, being with nature.
Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it?
The most emotional song that I have written is called "I Told You No." This is about my own personal sexual assault. It was very hard to write, but I believe that it can and will help others to speak out.
What was the first song or piece you ever wrote!?
It was called "Swept Away". All about love.
What is your dream gig? Is there a gig that you really want that would be the ultimate show for you?
I would love to perform at the Grammys, this would be a big accomplishment.
