What do you enjoy most about being a musician?

Songwriting allows me to express myself in a deeply personal way that makes me feel whole. Knowing that a song I wrote resonates with someone in a way that makes them feel heard is the most rewarding aspect of creating music.

Which musician would you like to collaborate with?

Without a doubt Hayley Williams of Paramore. As a young pop/rock artist, also based in Nashville, it would be incredibly inspiring to hear her story and learn how she was able to break through genres to create a sustainable career.

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

Since I already have a solid catalog of music recorded and scheduled to come out through 2023, I would use this amount of money to help in amplifying my brand through traditional PR, tour promotion and creating killer marketing materials!
