**********

'A lot of pop people out there are cool, but they overdo it.'


**********

'The pop world is cool, but I never really thought of myself as part of it or wanting to be a part of it because I'm on a label that's not really like that. They're not trying to dress me up, they're not trying to do things like that. I feel like I'm sort '


**********

'I could do without 'cool' publications calling me 'mom jazz.' But I laughed all the way to the bank, baby.'


**********

**********

'I hope there are some audiophiles still out there.'


**********

'My mom and I have always been very close. She is my best friend. She had to make a lot of sacrifices early on in my life to make sure I got to do what I wanted to do.'

'I could do without 'cool' publications calling me 'mom jazz.' But I laughed all the way to the bank, baby.'


**********

'I became a musician so I wouldn't have to get up at 6 in the morning.'


**********

'I think it's important for people who love music to retain physical CDs or even vinyl, because it sounds so great and so much warmer than music over the internet.'


**********

'Nobody was listening when I learned how to play music. But there's something about being on stage, talking to the audience, looking at them and smiling, that's always been difficult for me. I'm a lot more comfortable now, but there are still moments of aw'


**********

'What I was going for in the first two albums I didn't necessarily achieve. Because I was young and because it was my first time out. And the second album was such a 'quickie' sort of 'Let's just get it over with!' But the kind of music I make, there's a l'


**********

'When I moved to New York, I fell head over heels back into country music and probably 'cause I missed something about Texas.'

**********

'It's true, there's a lot of melancholy in my music. I don't know why, I'm not a melancholy person. I've always been drawn to it. Ever since I was a kid, if I had an album I would play the ballads on repeat.'


**********

'For me making music is part social, part interaction, part collaboration.'

**********

**********

'I try to just make music that I love, and if I believe in it that's all that matters.'


**********

'There are absolutely no problems between me, my dad and my sister. Obviously I grew up with just my mum, but my relationship with my dad is just fine.'
