Check out her new song “Just Go” and find out a little more about this great single.
Why did you select this song as your current single?
While trying to narrow down the options, my producer and I decided on Just Go because of a few different reasons. Partially because the subject was something a lot of listeners could relate to (love, heartbreak, being afraid of losing someone), while staying true to my unique style. Beyond that, I love to show off my vocal range and the song gave itself completely to the strings and orchestral percussion – which is something I have always embraced, growing up around musical theatre.
How does this single relate to the rest of the Album, EP or Mix-tape?
I raised the money for Just Go through Kickstarter, as part of a project to record a single, order merchandise and put together a professional press kit. Since funds were limited, Just Go was released on it’s own, without a full album or EP. If it were on an album though (hypothetically, of course), I write about life – whether it’s love or heartbreak or having fun or dreaming big. When I do release a full length album, I just want it to be honest and real. I want to tell stories about my life, and hopefully create something that someone can relate to (and then sing along to at the top of their lungs).
What was the writing process for the song?
I have the habit (I think it’s great, but I’m sure the people I live with want to kill me) of singing in the shower. Sometimes a cover song that’s stuck in my head, and sometimes just random melodies that come to mind. Sometimes I end up belting out stuff that isn’t so pretty… But every now and then, I get out and write an awesome song. I probably look like a crazy person, sitting at piano with a towel still on my head, but that is how Just Go was born.
What does this song’s lyric mean to you?
I wrote this song at the beginning of a new relationship. Like a lot of people, I’ve had some bad luck, and in a new relationship, I was kind of expecting the worst. I figured everyone else has left, so I won’t be surprised if he does too (the chorus goes “I know things are gonna change, and when they do, when you wanna go, just go.”)… Thankfully, I’m still dating that guy, so I got some great inspiration for a song and an awesome boyfriend.

What would it be like to see you in person performing this song?
While I made sure that the full recording of Just Go had “me” in it (like the piano, and especially none of that auto-tune business – that voice is all me), seeing it in live performance is a totally different thing. I perform with just a keyboard and vocals, so the song is usually completely stripped down. Because I perform acoustically, my shows tend to be much more emotional. Plus, my total awkwardness on stage is part of my charm!

Could your fans summarize who you are as an artist by this song?
No way! I don’t think you could summarize who I am as an artist by any single song, or even by a few songs. So many eclectic styles and ideas go into my music, that I don’t even know if I can fully summarize myself as an artist. I write depending on the mood I’m in, or what kind of music I was listening to in my car, or even the weather. It’s ever-changing, and I don’t think it fits very well in any box. (Although I will admit that the big belt and my love for musical theatre, pop and classic rock will always show in my original tunes.) 
Is there a video planned and or completed and if so, what was the idea behind the video?

There is a video currently in the works (stay tuned for that release!)… For my first song, I decided to keep it simple. The goal was to put the focus on the music, and the emotions in it. In the video, I’m playing a piano on the beach. That’s it. Singing my heart out, and trying to show the feelings I felt when I first wrote it. I normally get stuck playing an electric keyboard, so I was adamant about using a real piano, especially on a song that is so dramatic. Playing on real keys changes the way songs feel to me, and I wanted all of the heart in it that I could get. Although I definitely do not recommend trying to move a piano on sand!
One last question, what is your motivation behind your music?
Not to sound dramatic, but music saved my life. If it wasn’t for Avril Lavigne’s first album that inspired me to start writing music, I would not be where I am right now. Musically, or in life in general. I love writing, and singing, and sharing music. Music was and is so important to me, I just want to make people feel that same way I felt about it. Even if it’s just one person who relates to a single song, that’s what counts.
