When did you start making music?
I was a wee one. Started playing guitar and singing at 5 years old. I think I wrote my first song when I was like 12. I don’t remember how it goes but it was totally about my crush on a camp counselor.
Who inspires you most?

What scares you most?
Letting fear lead me, or anyone, or all of us forward.
