When did you start playing music and why?
I've been singing since third grade and I just started guitar this year. I started choir because I saw my sister, Marlo in choir and just wanted to be like my sister. I also really enjoyed Hannah Montana and the thought of being a rock star was so cool to me.
What is your favorite song you ever played?
My favorite song I've done was ‘Working Man’ by Rush, ‘Sweet Leaf’ by Black Sabbath and ‘Foreplay/Longtime’ by Boston.
What do you like about RiverCity?
I love the creative energy that RiverCity has - everyone seems to have so much talent and skills when they are playing. It always makes me smile just watching the songs fall into place.
What is your favorite band right now?
I love Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against the Machine and Modern Baseball.
What other music projects are you working on?
I am not working on any side music products for the time being. Right now I’m focused on high school.
