“My approach for songwriting isn’t necessarily formulaic. However, the inspiration for my songs tend to come from my day to day life — even though my songs are not always about my life. For example, I love being able to take a seemingly insignificant thought or comment from a random conversation and build a story around it. More recently, I have really enjoyed collaborative writing. I have had the chance to write with some of the best in the industry and this opportunity has allowed me to grow tremendously as a writer. As artists, we tend to want to hold our work closely to our chest and only share when it feels “perfect”, so working with other songwriters has pushed me outside of my comfort zone in addition to continuous learning.”
