I'm so glad to have found you. You're music and style inspire me like no other artist. You've helped me 'find myself' and made me feel far less alone. Do you have any advice for an aspiring performer?

Thank you, thank you! When I read words such as yours, it makes me realize I have achieved everything I have ever set out to do with my work. So honored to be there for you.

So, if i have helped you to "find yourself"--- that's the key. Don't lose yourself in the midst. Hold on to those reins with all your might because every frustrating step of the way the industry and naysayers are going to want to turn "myself" into "everybody else." That's my advice: Don't listen to them.
Cultivate your own inner world and inhabit it, honor it, unapologetically. Don't let them come in and make you second guess yourself. Don't change what you're doing to market to trends, fashions, or what others are doing.
If you choose to follow the crowd, you will eventually only get lost in it. And there's so much more to life than that. xox
