5 PEOPLE I’D MOST LIKE TO HAVE DINNER WITH: Frank Sinatra, Britney Spears, John Lennon, James Taylor & Sara Bareilles

MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: This is a tough question. The last person I saw in concert was Sara Bareilles. I’ve seen her live about 5 times now and in a sense I feel like I’ve watched her career grow. The first time I saw her in concert, she played a tiny show at a local university for about 30 people. When I saw her a few months ago, she was playing for hundreds. It’s very inspiring to watch your favorite artists evolve right before your eyes.

I WROTE THIS SONG: About a brief romance that moved very quickly and ended very quickly. The “Red Line” is a train that runs throughout the city of Boston and during the time of this relationship, I was taking this train every day. I came up with the line Red Line Love and wrote this song comparing the relationship to the movements of the train.
