Thanks for your time! So, how’s 2016 been treating you so far?
This year has been amazing! The middle of last year was really when everything in my life as a person and an artist just clicked, you know? So everything since then has been a gradual incline in the same categories of my life. So great.
What does a typical day look like for you lately?
Typical days in my life when I’m working are completely different than when I’m home, which is exactly how I like it. Work hard, chill hard. When I work, whether it’s touring or promoting its go go go. And when I go home I live a very modest and relaxed existence. I just love reading and watching Netflix!
Growing up, did you always know that you were going to be a musician? Can you recall your earliest musical memory?
I actually always wanted this. I got my first drum set on Christmas when I was 4. I always had wide eyes for music.
This past October, you released your EP, “Dreams”. Can you talk about the process of putting it together? I’ve read that you felt it was a journey for you and your fans. Can you explain all of that?
Amidst the hardest year I think a person could endure in my life–I was left with nothing. I was a complete shell of a human. I took the scraps and moved back to LA when my back was against a wall and my heart was like a shriveled little prune and tried one more time for it. My dream saved my life. I mean that. The journey back to music saved my life.
It’s been 3 years since you’ve put out new material. Why that long? Were you working on new music that whole time or doing other things?
It was just a series of unfortunate events for a few years in my life. I’m thankful for them now because now it makes everything I’ve worked for seem easy like Sunday mornin’…but to be a writer means you’re always writing. I’m always thinking.
You just wrapped a 30-day national tour. What was that like? What were some of your favorite shows and crowds?
Every show was so special. Every kid I got to hug changed me, pushed me further.
Are you excited to head back out on the road this spring? What venues are you most excited to perform at?
I’m excited to play for people again! When people care it means more than you can even know!
How do you feel about your recent LA showcase at YouTube Space LA? Can you talk about the scavenger hunt that you created for fans to get there?
The YouTube showcase was amazing!! I love my team at Vel Records and my team who puts together opportunities like this. It was so much fun.
Who are some of your favorite artists? Who would you love to work with in the future?
I love Cam right now!!! I would love to get in a room with her and write a record!
When you aren’t working being a fabulous pop singer, what do you like to do for fun?
I actually love talking to fans, cooking, reading, and googling the release date of Fuller House on Netflix. Because, John Stamos.
How do you hope to be a good role model your young fans?
I don’t think about being a role model. I just think about being the absolute best human being I can be at this point in my life. For me first. Then that will trickle over into my music and my fans will appreciate that I would hope.
At the end of the day, what do you hope is the message of your music? What do you hope fans take away from your songs?
I just hope that I can help them throughout the little or big pot holes they hit. I want to be the song they put in in the road trip of life. I want to have a song for when they drive through rain or break down on the side of the road. Or just when they roll the windows down and put their hand on the leg of the person they love next to them. All of that is so beautiful and I want to be in the background when they do it.
