How did your new album/single and overall concept for it come about?

I write songs about relationships whether it’s falling in love, falling out of love, fighting for love…and the list goes on.  My album, Point of View, is about the intricacies of relationships and includes the relationship I have with myself.

Who would you say has been the single biggest influence in your life in getting you to where you are now in your career?
That’s a hard one.  My parent’s pushed me during my childhood and my husband picked up where they left off.  My husband who’s known as my “husbandger” (husband/manager) supports and pushes me in a way that I will always be thankful for.
What would you define as the most life-changing event so far in your musical career?
I would have to say the release of my EP, Beautiful Moments.  That was the first time I’d released music and I wasn’t sure how people would receive my voice and pen.  I wouldn’t have the courage to release any other music, if I hadn’t taken that first initial step.
What are some of the most important goals you have for yourself in the next five to ten years?
I am looking forward to creating more music and collaborating with other artists. I’m also looking forward to performing.
On a scale of 1-10, how much do you enjoy composing music?
I love composing music.  Composing gives me the opportunity to explore the many aspects of emotions and put them to music.
What's your favorite non-music activity?
That’s an easy one!  I love to watch movies. Watching movies gives me a mental break.  I can go to another place in time and see other situations I may or may not have experienced.
