1. When did you first decide you wanted to get involved with music?

I’ve wanted to sing/play music for as long as I can remember, but it wasn’t until I saw this band with a female singer open for panic at the disco when i was 14 that I thought “ok, if she can do this, so can I”. That’s when it became a real possibility to me.  

2. What city are you most excited to visit during your tour?

Atlanta! It's my hometown and i've played a full band show there before.

3. We see that you're not only a singer but an aspiring actress as well, tell us about that!

Basically one day my agents were like, “hey, here’s a self tape, deadlines tomorrow if you wanna do it”, and it happened to be during a week that I wasn’t feeling particularly inspired musically so I was like “why not”? I ended up having so much fun doing it because the storytelling element of it goes hand and hand with my favorite part of being a songwriter. I also direct most of my music videos, which end up being more like short films and act in those, so it’s been really cool to approach the challenge of being the vessel for someone else’s story for once. learning another art form has also given me even more appreciation and respect for actors, and it’s something I hope I can continue to get better at and do more of over time.
