LA. Having songs placed in film and television. How does writing for a film or tv production differ from writing for radio?

Nashville. Writing with Grammy winning songwriters like Paul Overstreet. What’s the best advice another songwriter has shared with you?

“Still There”…the accidental version. Working on music as the quarantine began. Did these unique challenges lead to any new writes?

Live version with co-writer Issac Slutzky to connect with fans who were listening to “Still There”. How else have you been able to stay in touch with fans?

Traveling during the pandemic. Many artists go to Joshua Tree in California to write. Have any of your songs been written there?

“Good Time” co-written with Chris McKenna and Frank Legeay. You posted that it was written in person, before the pandemic. The song is about wanting a real connection, but settling for a good time, hoping it will turn into something more even knowing it’ll hurt you in the end. Can you describe the co-write session?

You posted that the new single’s lyrics seem even more relevant now. How so?
