Go into details on what have changed in your life for choosing music as a career. 
To begin with… everything.

I’ve never been happier and even though some days are harder than the next I really don’t mind the struggle because it’s for something I love. It has brought me such a great sense of pride. It makes me want to dress better and get out there play every piano at every house party and bar I go to and sing “Love is Dead” from the top of my lungs.

Tell us the benefits and drawbacks of choosing music as a career. 
The feeling of knowing someone is out there listening to “Love Is Dead” while stuck in traffic is everything for me.

The only drawback is my lack of patience for good things to happen to me.

Elaborate on the story line of this song. 

I wrote the first half of the song after a long whisky soaked night a while back. I was sitting at the piano feeling hung-over with a side of melancholy. I was sad because I felt awful and didn’t know why I stayed out so late! What was I looking for? The answer was LOVE…in any form. Feeling like I had missed out on a time that people use to dress beautifully on a Friday night and slow dance with a band behind them like they would in the 50s. I felt like our generation really missed out on the elegance and the art of romance. That is where the lyric “I was born too late” came from. The words just seemed pouring right out of me. I put the song down not wanting to come to term with the truthfulness of those lyrics. After having my heart torn to pieces this year…it was time to finish it.

Discuss your good and bad experience in life. 

The best and worst year of my life was last year. I had my heart broken, lost some friends, designing clothes no longer inspired me and I had a yearning to sing again. I saved up enough money to just focus on my music and record some songs. My whole life changed when I decided to pursue something I loved.

Once I was told I could learn how to sing better… that hurt a little so I got singing lessons; fixed that shit immediately.

Tell us how you plan to make an impact on the society. 

My lyrics are sincere. It is for the modern time love drought. Everyone is so focused on themselves these days…we’ve

forgotten what it means to feel anything exciting for others let alone compassion. When I sing I want to wake you up and inspire you to experience life, love and pain. To embrace all your emotions and be self-aware. To give hope to people who want to pursue scary career paths and conquer it.

Elaborate on the recording process of this song. 
I recorded this song at route 2 Recordings in Eagle Rock California in August 2017. I initially came to the studio having ZERO musicians with the exception of me singing and playing piano. I met Torin Wright at the studio who is a very talented cellist and bassist. He also plays in a band called the Inverse Effect and so I asked if I could borrow him and his awesome drummer Matt wheeler. The recording process was a bit rocky in the beginning because I had never really produced a song before however my engineer Zak Mouton was very patient haha. We tracked all the instruments live. Once we laid down piano, bass, drums and vocals…I messaged singer/songwriter Sarah Ault on Facebook asking if she would be interested in singing backup vocals. So she came in to the studio with her friend Devon lee to sing along. When I heard that angelic sound that came out of the vocal booth I almost fell to the floor. The way those two harmonize is out of this world. That same day saxophone player Matt Brown from the synth pop band Dream Machines came by to lay down some alto and baritone sax. I really wanted a sax solo and all I did was try to evoke a very emotional feeling out of Matt…so I told matt “I want you to imagine that there is no beer left in the whole world” and that is how we got that epic solo. We really felt like something was still missing so Zak the engineer brought in his awesome guitarist friend Jacques Mouledoux and that that was the cherry on top.

I really wanted to keep the recording process as organic as possible. It was very experimental for me but I just trusted the talent of each person I brought in and allowed them to do their thing. Once I heard a take I loved, that was that.

My vocals were recorded last and I had the help of my singing teacher Weba Garretson to come in and help me warm my vocals up and guide me to execution.

Once we cut the song and arranged it with Zak. I knew we needed someone who could understand the vision to really bring out that 1950s zest. I looked up who mixed Nick Waterhouse’s last album “Holly” so I reached out and was lucky enough to have Gavin Paddock and he really brought the song to completion giving the song a more hauntingly vintage effect.
