What informs your music and songwriting?
This answer has changed over the years, but I find that my recent inspiration comes from travel. There’s something about experiencing a new beautiful place that makes me want to sit down immediately and write a song.

How have you evolved as an artist over the years?
I’ve completely transformed in the last several years. I feel like I’m who I want to be at the moment in my musical journey. Of course that is ever changing, but it feels really good in the soul. I have been on the other side where I was still figuring out what I was about and those years are important too! It all leads to sweet spots if you keep searching.

What are you up to at the moment artistically?
I’ve just recorded some new music with an amazing Nashville producer Mark Bright. I’m so truly proud of these tracks we’ve recorded and it’s so hard not to just release them out to the world now! I feel like there’s so much me that comes through on the production and lyrics. My new single Wasted is out now.

What’s on your rider?
What if I said only pink M&Ms? Only joking, of course! I’m pretty chill on the rider, but I do love a good bottle of wine and some chocolates. I’m loving the new snacks of the UK I get to try.

Tell us your most embarrassing or surreal experience.
One of the most embarrassing moments ever was starting one of my songs off in the wrong key at a show. It was a funny train wreck that the band still laughs about to this day because I’m a super stickler for being in tune.

What song do you wish you’d written?
I’m in love with Landslide by Fleetwood Mac. It’s stunningly gorgeous and one of my favorite covers to throw into a show.

What’s your worst lyric?
I wrote a song one time called Love Child and that’s all you need to know.
