Q: Talk about your childhood, where you grew up, etc

I was born and raised in  Lawrenceville, New Jersey. I was constantly going back to New York and Philly..I hated the suburbs. My parents made me start taking piano lessons around eight years old. Thank God!


Q: When did you know you for sure you wanted to be a musician?

Right away. I knew it before I actually started playing one. I think it had to do with being on stage. Piano was a great tool to get me up there.


Q: If you could do a duet with anyone living or dead, who would it be and why?

Gram Parsons. Our vocals would’ve been swell together.


Q: What is your favorite part about being on the road? 

I just love performing. There’s a lot of moving parts all the time, but it’s all worth it in the end. I’ve always enjoyed having a new home each night, in a new city. However, I would say the actual performance would be my favorite part.


Q: How have you grown from your first EP to this new album?

The writing and songs have evolved for sure. I’ve certainly become more confident as well.


Q: What was it like spending two years in Europe?

It’s much different than the states.I think it’s easier for people to break out there. It’s much more artsy. It was a great place to ‘break.’ ::laughs:: I had a great time.


Q: Are you excited about your show here in Baltimore?

I am! I’ve never been to Baltimore, I’m looking forward to get the band flown over there, and get rocking.
