How do you usually write the lyrics of your songs?
There isn’t really a usual! Lyrics come from unexpected places and no two songs take the same amount of time to write.
In your opinion, what is the most important thing in songwriting?
Honesty! “Writer’s block” happens when you’re not saying anything you need to say.
Are you ever scared of revealing aspects of your personal life/experience to strangers through your music?
All I do is reveal aspects of my personal life to strangers through music. I learned how from listening to people like Patty Griffin, Jason Isbell, Phoebe Bridgers, Noah Gundersen. They taught me it’s the best way to make someone feel less alone.
What is the best lyric that you ever wrote (the most meaningful for you)?
I can’t just choose one of my children! But off the top of my head today: “Lately I’ve been caught between / Not seeming needy / And needing to feel like she needs me” (from the song Until We Both Get Bored)
What inspired “Forest Fire”, your latest single?
Loneliness and Coachella pictures.
Do you remember the day you wrote “When You See My Heart”?
I remember the day I wrote the first verse and the day I wrote the rest of the song. Those days were 3-4 months apart.
When you will release a new album?
What is the best suggestion your producer gave you?
“Let me go clap in the bathroom for this outro.”
What are your plans for 2019?
I want to take some time to break my routines.
