Why do you dream of being a singer/songwriter?
I love music. The only time I feel completely at peace and at ease is when I’m singing, writing, performing or playing soccer. Songs just kind of come to me.
What inspires you to write?
Everything I read about in the news, everything that I see out in the world around me. I’m a pretty emotional and sensitive person so there are many things that just motivate me to want to speak out… either for the sake of my own heart or for the emotions and experiences of other people.
What are your songs about?
Trials I’ve personally experienced or people I’m closed to have experienced. Often I write songs for people I really care about to help them feel better about their current situation. Or I write songs for my friends who are getting married. Some of the most beautiful songs I’ve written have been for my friends who have recently tied-the-knot.
What is your musical style?
Soul-pop is probably the best way to describe it, but I want to incorporate some rock influences in as well, such as drums and electric guitar. I find Rock n’ Rollers to really have their heart in the right place when it comes to the music. If I had my dream I would be a female Ed Sheeran mixed with Sara Bareilles and my band would sound like a mix of The Script and The Cranberries.
Why should people care about me as an artist?
I’m extremely passionate and motivated in what I do and why I do it. Someday, I want to create a fund to help low-income children so they can follow their dreams too.
