What are your favorite lyrics from your latest single? I love this phrase in the bridge that says, "I'm a bad bitch but only I can say it, I'll just be myself everybody quit complaining." Feels authentic and real, like something I've needed to say to a few people lol. What kind of pull did you feel about making the single? When I finally decided to release new music and choose a way to essentially reintroduce myself to the world, it was no question that this was the song. I meet so many women who feel they've been counted out or underestimated. I wanted to speak for them, like screw everyone else, be you, be proud, be a BAD BITCH! Are all your writing sessions collaborative or do you go off on your own? Do you have a preference? I do both collaborating and on my own. I love both equally to be honest. I wrote Bad Bitches Like Me with my friend Megan Linnville. It's one of those songs that was born out of a conversation and just generally being a fan of each other and I love that. Do you ever compare the work you bring to the table? It's natural to compare yourself. I definitely can do that sometimes but I try to say what this artist has going on, celebrate it and let it inspire me. What is standard practice when it comes to if the song is really finished? I feel like I could rewrite forever and sometimes when I sing a song live, there is always a new life to it. There just comes a point where you go ok this is the best it can be, and go create a new song. What was the goal for making the latest track? When Megan and I wrote it I was honestly just talking about how in the music industry I'm considered really old. I had someone say to me, "Oh you're so good, why don't you have a record deal?" When they asked how old I was their response was "Oh that's why." When talking about that we both were like call me old, or gay, or whatever else you want I'm still a Bad Bitch and so is anyone who picks herself up and keeps chasing their dreams. Challenges to the new music that no one would know about? The hardest part for me has been holding on to it. I've written so much these past 2 years but some of these songs still felt like the most authentic to release. So taking the time to go back, do some re-writes and produce it in a way that sounded like me was hard. I want to move fast and create more and more. It was great to process slowly and try and find exactly what felt right for these songs. Favorite memory in the making of this music? Probably being in the studio with my friend Sully Erna of Godsmack. He is an incredible drummer and producer. He also is a friend and knows me well, so having him pull out my own ideas was exciting and new. When he recorded the live drums over a few of the songs, that was killer too and really brought a special element to the tracks. Is there anything off the table when it comes to bringing yourselves into your music? I haven't found that yet but never say never, lol. I am an open book and being true and genuine as an artist is really important to me. Leave us on a high note! And share some good news! I'm so proud of the music my collaborators and I have created. We are having a killer release party to celebrate August 19th and are gearing up to release another track mid September!
