"My music is a reflection of the artists that I grew up listening to. I love a lot of those 70s singer-songwriter artists and I try to stay true to the essence of that 70s sound in my own writing. I feel that was one of the best times for music; there was a lot of honesty in the lyrical writing of those songs, and all of my own songs have honest statements that I’m not afraid to talk about in song. I’m also a very authentic performer. My music is my communication of what I’m most passionately feeling at the moment, and that kind of expression is the best way of communication and creativity."
