Tell us what your fans are saying about your music.
My fans have called my latest music, “beautiful and poetic.” Words like these are such incredible compliments to receive and I am so thankful for everyone’s positive feedback.
Tell us the factors you consider in choosing a song as your favorite.
Lyrics are a huge factor when choosing a song as my favorite. I love hearing an artist’s story put to music.
Tell us the names of producers you will collaborate with if you have the chance.
I currently love working with my producer, Buddy Hyatt, in Nashville. I would love to also work with people like Jay Joyce, Maren Morris, and Chris Stapleton.
Tell us the names of the songwriters you will collaborate with if you have the chance.
I would love to work and write with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.
Tell us your favorite TV show and state your reason.
‘Friends’ is by far my favorite television show because it always keeps me in a good mood and laughing.
Tell us your best mood to create a song.
I think I am most creative when I’m confused or conflicted. I always find the answers to my problems when I’m forming them into a song.
Tell us your interpretation of fame or success.
I think fame and success are very different things. Fame is when people know your name, but success is when you leave a lasting, positive impact on those people.
Tell us the names of artists you will collaborate with if you have the chance.
I would love to collaborate with Bruce Springsteen, Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris, Gavin DeGraw, Keith Urban, and Carrie Underwood.
Tell us about your experience performing on stage for the first time or recording in the studio for the first time.
The first time I ever recorded in a recording studio was a life-changing moment for me. I was 17 and recording my first ever single. I remember hearing my music come alive over my headphones and I was overcome with joy and awe. The experience has motivated me to keep creating music for people to enjoy.
Tell us how you approach songwriting.
I approach songwriting like I would if I was writing a story about my life. I put my experiences onto paper and organize them to fit a melody.
Tell us your opinion on blending genres or experimenting with sound.
I love the idea of blending genres and experimenting with sound. Artists should feel free to create music even if it doesn’t fit their current genre.
Tell us how you deal with rejection.
I see rejection as an opportunity to grow. Taking people’s constructive criticism is the only way to grow as a writer and person.
Elaborate on what compels you to sing.
I sing because music is a way to unite people. I think to be a part of something that influential is really beautiful.
Tell us the comparison between digital recording and analog recording.
Digital recordings are great because they can be archived forever on a computer or device. Analog is a great option because you’re receiving your music in its physical form.
Tell us how you record your vocals.
I record my vocals in the studio.
Tell us the software you used mostly for recording.
I use ProTools when recording for the most part.
Discuss the selling of CDs and the selling of digital files through digital stores.
The selling of CDs and digital files both have their benefits. Selling CDs gives the artist a reasonable profit while selling digital files reaches a larger audience.
Elaborate on the song.
‘July’ is a song about finding love in the heat of the summer. It is soft, sweet, and melodic as the music takes the listener through a story of falling in love.
