What do you enjoy most about being a musician?

I love creating something from nothing and bringing deeper meaning to personal experiences. I also enjoy connecting with, entertaining, and empowering others through the shared experience of music. Live shows are where it's at!

Which musician would you like to collaborate with?

You know, I'm so lucky to get to collaborate with my close friends and current musical partners, but it would be an incredible honor to work with personal idols such as Taylor Swift, Kacey Musgraves, and John Mayer. All are great storytellers.

If you were the next Opening Act, what would you do with $10,000?

I've been an independent, self-funded artist for so long that I would be so grateful to invest the $10,000 back into an engaging Hollywood Bowl performance, a creative music video, and digital marketing for my upcoming record. Exciting to envision!
