  1. Awesome interview! It’s funny how you mentioned writing stories when you were in 5th grade. That’s when I got into writing stories too! I would write my friends into the stories.
    By the way, I love your song! I just downloaded “Shoot Me Down” from iTunes. Very catchy, and you have an awesome voice!

    • Thank you so much! Yeah, I would write ghost stories that one day, maybe when I’m old, I’ll get to publish them. Haha. Thanks for downloading the song & your feedback! Glad you enjoyed it 🙂 Next year more music will be coming out 🙂

      • I wrote my stories in a notebook. I’m pretty sure my mom threw it out. She loved throwing things out if they weren’t glued down! One of my stories was called The Killer. The Killer was named Robby and he had knives for fingers. This was in 1980. Nightmare on Elm Street came out in 1984. Hmmmm.

        Anyway, I love your song and your voice. I will definitely support you and buy all your music that comes out!
