Biggest musical influence?
I grew up listening to so many different artists spanning different genres. My parents listened to the Grateful Dead, the Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Dave Matthews Band, and more. So when I started developing my own music taste and writing style, it became an amalgamation of what I had known growing up and what I needed to say as a young female musician.
I love the fact that multiple genres and styles have influenced the way I create today. My music remains more unique this way. Plus, my job as an artist is to create something that’s never been said or heard before, so, I would never want to make music that sounds similar to any other artist.
If you are not an artist right now what would you be doing?
I would definitely want to be in the entertainment industry. I have a degree in communications, so I’ll say something involving marketing or advertising. I also did voice-over work as a kid, so it would be fun to pick that up again!
If you could give your fans one message what would it be?
Be who you are and spread love! I try to incorporate this theme throughout my music. My EP, “Fly Home” touches upon love and acceptance in each song. In fact, the lyrics of the title track, “Fly Home”, are, “They don’t see who you are, they see makeup I see your scars. Once they know what you need then they’ll see why you’re beautiful to me.”
What is the weirdest or funniest question you have ever been asked by a fan?
I’ve been asked to sign my business cards a couple times! That always makes me laugh.
