How long have you been songwriting/performing for?
I’ve been performing since I was a young child, that is…for as long as I can remember! Funnily enough though, I didn’t start writing songs until one of my first visits to Los Angeles and someone in the industry said if I was gonna sing I needed to write my own songs. I was so naive, I had no clue. I took their advice and actually ended up having quite a knack for it, in fact I loved it! So my songwriting ablitites definitely came later.
What was it in your childhood that made you so passionate about music?
My passion for music came from my mother. She was such a lover of music and her passion inspired me from my earliest childhood memories. Music truly was our special bond and something that I will cherish forever.
Who are your biggest musical influences?
Too many to count really, but I’ll give ya a short list. Stevie Nicks, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, The Eagles, Led Zepplin, Whitney Houston, Ed Sheeran, Queen, Elvis Presley, Adele just to name a few!! Great music and great talent always inspires and influences me.
When you write do the music or lyrics come first?
My song writing process goes both ways but generally the music comes before the lyrics. I feel I write my best songs like this because it’s as if the music is speaking to me telling me what to say. I’m so connected and in the moment that writing the songs usually comes very quickly. Everything I write is like a biography, my life’s experiences.
Has moving to LA given you a different perspective on music?
Moving to LA has definitely given me a whole knew perspective. I really have a much better understanding of the music business and what gives songs and music commercial viabilty. There’s also incredible talent performing constantly, so it keeps you hungry and energized seeing so much great music and diversity. I truly love the LA Music scene and some of my proudest achievements came from playing at venues that all the greats have played. Pretty awe struck really for this small town girl.
