Congratulations on the single “Nostalgic Candy”. What can you tell us about this song? What prompted you to write it?
I wanted to write a song with a pop sensibility that set an empowering tone. Songwriting is a huge part of my life, so I had a few poems that fit the concept, and I just paced around my house, and played around on keys and guitar until it came together.
What do you think is the most stand-out lyric in “Nostalgic Candy”?
“We burn the bridge at both ends for a distance between us that was already there from the start. Up from too deep, too fast, I got the bends, stopped the vessels, cut off all of the blood to my heart” This lyric is a metaphor that compares the decompression sickness that scuba divers can experience when they come up to the surface too quickly, to really being in deep with another person and then before you know it, you’re out of the water reflecting on it all.
What inspired the fun new music video?
I wanted to create a contrast between where the lyrics were coming from and this video. So we went for something silly and colorful.
What are some of the key values you aim to represent with your music?
I want my music to represent honesty. Songwriting and performing are my outlets, so I aim to express my truths and hopefully help somebody in the process.
What can we expect from you going through to the end of 2019!?
I’ve got some releases on the horizon.
