MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: My favorite concert experience was seeing Tom Petty perform live at the Greek Theater in Berkley, CA when I was fifteen. Stevie Nicks came onstage for “Dont Come Around Here No More,” and “Stop Dragging My Heart Around ” and it was a stunning, life changing concert that I will never forget!
I WROTE THIS SONG: I wrote the song “California” about the journey that so many people take to come here and make their dreams a reality. The song speaks of my inability to be happy because the passionate dreams that I once had were “chasing me” and eventually allowed me to become something I wasn’t just because I thought it was the only way. My intentions were always good, but I still couldn’t find the sunshine in California.
