1. How would you classify your music?
Hahaha of course this is the first question! I have always had a hard time pinning myself into one genre, or even a few, as I draw my inspiration from many artists across many genres, and think my music can fall into a number of different categories depending on which song you listen to. However, if I have to narrow it down, I’d say Americana Folk Pop.
2. Who are some of your top 5 musical influences?
My top 5 musical influences definitely have to be Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes), Joni Mitchell, Brandi Carlile, Lisa Fischer, and Jeff Tweedy (Wilco).
3. What do you want fans to take from your music?
It’s always my hope that people will be able to listen to my music and find some truth that speaks to them and their personal life experience. Some songs definitely have more of an existential, pensive tone of self-realization, and others speak more to universal experiences of love or loss that are straight-forward in terms of my intended content. However, it is always my hope that people can find their own meaning in any of my songs and that I am not imposing my absolute narrative or where I was at when a song was written onto the listener. That’s the beauty of any art – people can take what works for them and leave the rest.
