"You are gone love”. The opening line on Our Violet Room newest track “Till Death” gives a glimpse of foreshadowing of he heart ache that encompasses these lyrics.

Hello! We loved your latest single “Till Death”. Can you tell us the meaning of this heartfelt song?
This song was birthed out of the loss of my marriage. A divorce I didn’t want and the pain that came form that. I’ve never been one for sugarcoating hard truths and this world is not only full of beauty but it’s full of pain and I’m tired of people felling like they have pretend that their lives are better then they are. I want my art to start a conversation. A conversation based in truth, pain, beauty and hope. Once we become more free to be vulnerable and realize we aren’t alone the more we can come along side each other, help one another and grow. This song, which I feel is beautiful, came from something ugly. We can make beauty from darkness in our art and out of our lives.
What does the creative process look like for you?
I start with a guitar picking pattern and chord progression. Once that’s down I start singing diffent melodies. Once I have a melody that sticks I start adding lyrics. That entire process maybe takes a week but the actual writing of my lyrics usually, on average, takes about 10 mins.
Who are you currently listening to your that brings you inspiration?
I’m always listening to the following musicians constantly for endless inspiration. Lyrically John Moreland, David Ramirez, Dylan and Cash. Sonically Danny Elfman, Hans Zimmer, John Williams and Thomas Newton. Melodically, old Coldplay, Sufjan, the National And Bon Iver.
Any big plans in the works for your this year for your music?
Working on a new ep. I’ll be touring the states and Europe with Sofar Sounds and on my own. And I just signed a licensing contract to score tv shows and movies and to have my own songs synced for tv and movies too.
What are you hoping that your music brings to audiences?
I want my music to make people feel, think and to be inspired. I want my music to bring truth and beauty into their lives and to inspire them all to create something beautiful.
