I've been playing piano and writing silly little songs since I was five.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
My dad and Billy Joel were my biggest musical influences growing up. Dad would write songs about baked goods and playing with your face, and I wanted to be able to put something silly and fun into a song. Songwriting first became a solitary activity, which I used primarily for catharsis.
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
I played in a rock band in high school. We played mostly covers (Allman Bros, Grace Potter, Grateful Dead)
