Any advice for aspiring musicians?
Be authentic, confident, and genuine in every move you make...whether it be on stage or just meeting fellow musicians or people that work at venues and what not. I think being kind is the most valuable trait one can have when beginning to work in the music industry because people will remember you for that. Be open to all different kinds of music and bands when playing with others, you can learn a lot about other genres that you're not specifically involved in.
What's next for you?
Writing with Justin Raisen (producer for Ariel Pink, Angel Olsen, Charli XCX, Lawrence Rothman, The Garden, Sky Ferreira etc.) and Aaron Bruno (singer for Awolnation) and playing a ton of shows all over the U.S..
