How To Be Loved
After witnessing the Women’s March on January 21 2017 and the people that are supporting and spreading love, inspired me to write this song. It’s about hope, and not giving up, and we will continue to find strength as long as we have each other. There’s more than one way to show love to people, we all just have to pick a way and spread love and not give in to defeat!
For my new album “This Instigator”…
it is important for me to bring new life into my experiences. Tackling the usual topics, “breakups”, “love” etc. But it is also important to me to explore other facets, for instance my song “Fuck Boy”, touches on the topic of just being someone’s play thing, with no guilt, and why should there be any guilt?! For my song “Indigo”, it is about terrorism and the weight that survivors carry after living through something so terrible (I was feet away from the terrorist in Nice, France in 2016 when the police shot him, so this topic is especially personal). All in all, “The Instigator” is meant to be provocative and is a way for me to share some opinions that are still taboo today.
I live in Seattle…
and the music scene is awesome, I just wish I could go to more shows!
I’m still developing an opinion regarding the music business. I have a lot of experience in it, like moving to LA after getting my tech degree for audio engineering. The thing about this business is that people feel shut out or unable to break into it and I think that’s dumb. As an artist I’m here to share my art, and if the way that I’m doing it can show other people how to do it, that’s great. I’m in it for the music.
I would love to have 5 minutes alone with…
so many people. Can we make this a council instead of a one on one? For a council I’d have Madonna, David Bowie and Jesus. But if I really had just 5 minutes with one of them, it would definitely be Madonna. She has been such an influence on my whole life. I love her sense of rebellion and her fortitude for not conforming and living an unconventional life as she ages. So much to talk about with her, that I don’t even know where to start!
