Favorite Song Of All Time: “There There” by Radiohead
“Obviously that is such a difficult question to answer, but that song is just so hauntingly beautiful. I love the layers, the consistent drum beat, the build up to the end, the chorus. The song reminds me of fall leaves, the smell of fire, and mischievous adolescence.”
Song That Raises Your Spirits: “Cattails” by Big Thief
“It reminds me of riding my bike in the spring. It reminds me of the smell of Jasmine. In LA, spring is my favorite time of year. Everywhere you go, the smell of Jasmine permeates through the air and it just makes me feel good. I listened to this song on repeat when it came out last year. “
Song You’re Most Proud of Working On: “Home” by Vita and the Woolf
“There’s a song called ‘Home’ off my new album which is set to come out this summer. I feel like the chorus of that song is well crafted and catchy. I of course am always super critical of my stuff once it’s done, and ‘Home’ isn’t exempt from that, however I am proud of that song.”
