everything comes from me. from the set list to every song to what I write about to how I want my record to sound, I’m one hundred percent involved in it. it’s scary and it’s exciting and I feel like I owe that to myself and also to my fans. when people send me letters and they say that my music has touched them or made them feel a certain type of way, that makes me really happy. I want people to know that we all go through the same things in one way or another. it makes me feel that I’m in the right place and I’m doing what I should be doing.
