I spent an hour on Google the other day trying to find photos of me and Britney Spears leaving a club in LA from the mid 2000s and came up empty handed.
19. HOW DOES IT FEEL TO DROP AN ALBUM?
It’s a great feeling – I’m super proud of this album – I wrote the songs between 2018 to 2020 in Stockholm, Sweden, Berlin, Germany and Nashville. It features many of my artist friends in Nashville – Luma, Miss Audrey, Blake Leider, Daisha McBride & Madeline Finn, as well as a gospel choir consisting of Timothy Myles (who plays with me on tour), Damian Malnar (lead singer of the pop band Lost Stars) and Violette LaVelle. Plus 2 DJs – Swiss DJ Fenox and Ukrainian DJ Depdramez. It’s definitely been a group effort, and I am so grateful for all of my collaborations.
20. WE KNOW YOU WRITE AND SHOOT VIDEOS ALL AROUND THE WORLD – WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SO FAR?
“RIP” is probably the most creative video I’ve made to date – displaying the “death of the old me” and my own funeral (but I don’t die). It was intended to symbolize my sobriety and the birth of this new chapter of my life. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6J08E5jhpSA

Exercise, yoga, workout at the gym with my best bud Dalton Ray (who is a fitness expert and a rising country singer in Nashville), travel the world, hang out with my friends, dance, and when at home – hang out with my sassy Himalayan cat.
22. CAN YOU TELL US ANY FUN OR FUNNY MOMENTS THAT HAPPEN IN THE RECORDING STUDIO?
I love to dance to the records as I write them, so you will usually see me goofing off to the beat.
23. WHAT WAS YOUR PRIZED POSSESSION IN HIGH SCHOOL?
Probably my wardrobe – Abercrombie and Fitch was cool – and my CD collection! (I’m dating myself now haha) I had a huge CD collection!
24. BEST COMPLIMENT YOU COULD GET:
That someone likes my music – someone wrote to me on Instagram this week that they loved my album – and told me their favorite songs – it was really rewarding to get unsolicited feedback like that.

I’ve been working on music videos in Miami with Russian award-winning cinematographer Dmitry Zhitov and will be releasing a video for “Sink or Swim” and “Forget You” off my album with him. The videos for “Can You Tell Me?” and “Say You Hate Me” were filmed in Nashville by Guys With Cameras. “Can You Tell Me?” is out now and “Say You Hate Me” will be out soon!
