Tell us about the meaning of the title of your new EP (and track) Heart Vol .1 that just came out?
I named this EP “Heart Talk”, because it was the first time I could truly and authentically speak from the heart about love, heart break, and everything in-between.
You are influenced by films when you write your music. What are some of the films that inspired you?
Yes, I am extremely into films. By 50, I’m going to write and direct a movie! I’d say some of the movies that have most have inspired my writing so far are The Velvet Goldmine, Trainspotting, Crimes of Passion (for the cinematography of it mostly, I’m not a freak I swear), Virgin Suicides, Fandango, The Graduate, Dead Poets society, Lost in Translation, Perks of Being a Wallflower, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Dazed and Confused, Phantom of the Opera, Anna Karanina.... God, there are so many more. I don’t think I have even scratched the surface yet. I love movies! But anyway, I’m a very visual person, so when I write, I want to physically see the picture/moment move; I want to become a part of the scene as if I were the character. Film is like a sister to music. For me, I feel that if I have a better understanding of film and knowledge towards that I will become a better writer & therefore become a better artist/musician & songwriter. It’s all about telling stories.
