What do you want fans to take from your music?
When people hear my songs, I want people to pay close attention to the lyrics and the emotion behind the lyrics. I feel that these are the most important aspects of any song. I sing with a lot of emotion and I want people to be able to feel what I am feeling by listening to the emotion in my voice.
How’s the music scene in your locale?
The music scene in Nashville is full of life. I love the music scene in Nashville because you can go to numerous places and listen to live music. I could listen to live music all day. There are musical events that happen everyday in Nashville and I think that is fantastic.
What is the best concert you have been to? What do you like most about playing live?
The best concert I have ever been to was Shania Twain. Since I grew up listening to her nonstop, it made the concert that much more enjoyable and fun. Her songs are extremely catchy and iconic. She also is a great entertainer and she gets the crowd excited. My favorite thing about performing live is getting to show my talent to the audience and having fun interacting with them.
Is there a song on your latest CD release here that stands out as your personal favorite, and why?
The song I am most excited about is my new single “We Are Us.” I am beyond excited about this song because it portrays a strong message to the world and I was able to connect with the lyrics on a personal level. I also love this song because “We Are Us” has various definitions and I think that it will touch the lives of many individuals’.
How have you evolved as an artist over the last year?
Over the past year, I think I have definitely grown as an artist. First, I have learned to go out of my comfort zone. I have started to challenge myself vocally and not always “playing it safe.” I also have branched out genre wise and enjoy listening/singing to multiple genres instead of simply just one. Lastly, I believe my confidence has grown tremendously. Through being in Nashville and starting to do music on a daily basis, I have grown to be more confident in myself as an artist and to not be afraid of things that come my way.
If you could meet, play a gig, co-write a song, have dinner, have a drink with any band or artist (dead or alive) who would it be?
The artist that I would love to meet would be Celine Dion. I think everything about her is incredible. I am in awe of her so much because I am drawn to her vocals and the intense emotion she puts behind all the lyrics of her songs. She is an artist that I look up too and I will always try to follow in her footsteps.
What’s next for you?
I will be releasing my new single on February 28, 2020. Until then and from now on, I hope to continue to grow as an artist and shoot for the stars. I am very excited to see where my music will take me and I can’t wait to for everyone to hear my new music.
