That’s no way to live at all. But you have to go through it to learn.”

“When I was really little I would sit in the back of my dad’s car when he’d be playing old-school music. He’d turn down the music and turn around and I’d be singing and know all of the words but I didn’t even know how to talk. From then on I’ve always wanted to be a singer.”

“I left school when I was 18 to pursue a career in music. Because I left school, I worried if singing would actually work out, but now I’m glad I did that. It was the right choice for me. Now I don’t really worry about stuff; if it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen.”

“I’m very strong creatively, in my music.”

“Sometimes you can get drowned out if you’re not out there and loud and aggressive.
