GGM: How did you get here? Did you always know you’d be a musician?
“I come from a family of performers, writers and artists. For as long as I can remember, music has been a central part of my life, however I did not always plan on pursuing it. My dad spent much of his life as a devoted songwriter, and I believe my exposure to his music opened my eyes to the power of song. Similarly, my moms angelic voice filled me with a desire to sing (like her). My aunt, both a vocal coach and an incredible mentor to me, helped me believe in myself. However, It was not until college that I decided to pursue music professionally.”
GGM: What has been your proudest moment so far in life?
“I am proudest when I do something that scares me, but I do it anyway! But, I don’t think I’ve had my proudest moment yet.”
GGM: What was the songwriting + production process behind “Lonely For You”? If you have any pictures, we’d love to see them.
“‘Lonely for You’ was unusual- it definitely emerged from an intense time in my life. The truth is, I was writing all day and I just couldn’t get it. Finally, at night, I was just laying in bed, and the whole song came to me. I didn’t have an instrument, I just wrote it in my head, and then later added the guitar. When it was time to record it, I turned to the multi-talented Johnny Hanson, having heard wonderful things about him. He turned it into something I never imagined, but hoped for.”
GGM: What interview question do you wish more people asked?
“Maybe… are you excited to get older?”
GGM: What’s one thing most people don’t know about you?
“I am definitely an introvert and have to really work at being social. Everyone thinks I am an extrovert because I’m have a strong personality and am engaged, but truthfully, socializing give me a lot of anxiety. One of my favorite things to do is go for long walks alone listening to music. I feel like I am doing something productive, going somewhere, yet I have time alone with my thoughts.”
GGM: Do you think being a woman in music has affected your career? If so, how?
“You know I’ve been lucky- there are a lot of strong female role models out there. I feel grateful to be alive in a time with such rising female strength and power.”
GGM: What’s your one piece of advice for women in the industry?
“Don’t think about yourself as a ‘women’ in the music industry, just think of yourself as an artist- a person in the industry.”
