Music should move you.

Whether that’s in the feels or on a physical level, the music that’s made the most impact in my life has always moved me. I grew up listening to a lot of Pop, R&B, and alternative. Dad loved Toni Braxton, Brian McKnight, and Baby Face; Mom idolized Madonna, Prince, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

My own personal tastes developed with artists like Mariah Carey, No Doubt and Britney Spears. And today, I believe that there is a time and space for all types of music, but as a writer, I always gravitate to writing with soul, no matter the genre.
