Which of your songs is your favorite and why?My favorite is "I'll Always Be Around." I'm really proud of all the harmonies. I still live in my hometown while nearly all my friends are at colleges in other places. Sometimes I wonder if they think about me as often as I think about them. I wrote this song about that feeling of loneliness and longing.
If you could open for any artist in the next year, who would it be? La Sera. She's my number one favorite artist.
What 3 artists have you listened to obsessively in the last month? In the last month, probably Blouse, La Sera, and my playlist of 60s girl groups that I love so much.
What is your favorite phrase? "The play is never done until we've all of us been burned a bit and burnished by the sun." It's from a musical called The Fantasticks. It means that, in life, obstacles may be painful but in the end you'll learn and mature from them.
Books or movies? My favorite book and movie is The Virgin Suicides.
What would most people be surprised to learn about you? I once was a contestant in the Miss Northern Virginia pageant, which is a preliminary for Miss America. I lost because I stopped smiling onstage.
