1. Who are your top 5 favorite artists or bands in order?
Ed Schrader’s Music Beat
2. What made you want to move from New York City to Baltimore, MD?
New York didn’t allow me to live the lifestyle I need to be a full-time artist.
3. Where was your hangout spot in New York when you were attending SUNY Purchase?
I stayed on campus a lot. Didn’t go to the city much since I was broke. I lived in Washington Heights for a brief period and mainly just stayed at home. Later on, the Cake Shop was my main go to place. Oh maybe Alt Cafe or Alt Coffee. I can’t remember what it was called exactly.
4. If you could choose any album to be the soundtrack of your life, what would it be and why?
The score to ‘There Will Be Blood.’ Because it’s f*cking awesome.
5. How has touring with Miley Cyrus been, so far?
It was real chill. The lips crew were super inspirational.
6. If you could collaborate with any artist, dead or alive, who would it be?
I’d love to collaborate with my old composition teacher Joel Thome.
7. What food can’t you live without?
I’m pretty into peanut butter.
8. Tell us one thing on your bucket list.
A trip on the Trans-Siberian railway.
9. Where or what is your ideal performance setting?
Anywhere with a good PA and exited people.
10. Give us one juicy detail about your upcoming show at Brooklyn Bowl?
I’m probably playing a new song and I haven’t done that since Gliss Riffer material started getting workshopped.
