What the artist had to say:
What first got you into music? I started singing at age 6 and it was my secret talent that I kept hidden from everyone. I would sing to myself for hours and hours every day.
Who inspired you to make music? I think seeing my Mom struggle with her health (she passed from cancer when I was 15), it really inspired me to cultivate my gifts and find a way to communicate with the world.
How would you describe the music that you typically create? My own songs I would classify as Folk / Americana / Singer/Songwriter stuff. When I write songs for other artists and projects, I sometimes write country, pop and r&b.
What is your creative process like? Very random! I typically get ideas when I am jogging, driving, walking, hiking - always on the move lol. With my main collaborator, we tend to write very quickly. I think of a song like a photograph - it is to capture a moment in time.
Who would you most like to collaborate with? I have a few people on my collaboration wish list! At the top would absolutely be Babyface, Mary Chapin Carpenter, James Taylor and India.Arie.
what is one message you would give to your fans? Be You.
What is the most useless talent you have? I am so happy someone finally asked me this! lol Turns out, I am gifted in Mathematics. Ever since I was a kid, I can add, subtract and multiply any numbers in my head. I was nicknamed Calculator as a kid! This "talent" does not come in handy ever, unless I was out at a restaurant and I would tell each person what amount they should pay.
