How has your army brat upbringing influenced your musical style?
Being able to be an Air Force brat has helped me in a lot of ways. One, I am able to see the world on a bigger scale than most…even when it comes to what people are wanting to hear. I think I have been culturally versed to see that music moves through all cultures. Listening to R&B, salsa, and pop music has helped mold my sound altogether growing up. Listening to German music, Hawaiian music… all have shaped me in some way.
You are a self-described geek. What are the benefits of merging technology with talent in today’s digital world?
Combining my musical and technical technology skills has helped me be able to think outside the box with my music, my style, and my communication with fans. I literally think what is for the future for music and how I can make it more interesting for fans to interact with me across the internet. To make people feel what I feel through technology and music. Like augmented reality: I see that Rihanna received like 25 million for that to entwine her fans with technology but I really don’t think they got it right. I feel I can do this in different ways that I can’t speak of at this time
but you will see soon.
