“Pop music has been interpreted in many different ways and has taken on many forms over the years, but to me, it’s just that essence of what makes a great song appealing. I try to capture it and build on it. Sometimes that means adding lots of soul and energy, and sometimes it’s about capturing a quiet, simple melody that stands out all on its own. I will not be put in a box and defined as one thing or one sound. Good music is just that, and at the end of the day—and my life for that matter!—I just hope that I made some of it.”
