I like to sing at a comfortable pitch where you can sing from a low key to a high key or vice versa. I like the keys to be a bit warm up before you go into the lead section. It is all about getting it just right. I like a light touch. I try to do everything with just the right amount of subtlety. I like to put my foot down a bit but also be subtle with my voice and not over make everything. Try to be on the edge and have a good feeling. My music has some of my most emotional stuff in it at lower keys, but I try to bring that stuff up the high range. With this album, a lot of my more intimate moments are at lower keys. My songs have more of an introspective, vulnerable vibe to them. I’m interested in being able to make music to express and experience these emotions that I have. It is a lot more complicated than just going from one key to another just because I have a certain way of singing and feel. I know it’s a challenge to express my ideas in a way that people can relate to and relate to like that. I try and do it with a touch of mystery. The way I think is the way I sing. Not a lot of people can relate to the way I sing because I have this idea of singing from high to low. I try and make it all the same but a little bit more delicate from high to low. I like to be in the moment and then when I get to the end, I take away from it the way it is intended. That is why my voice is so powerful and so honest. You never know where it’s going to land and sometimes you want to sing with a little bit of mystery in the voice but don’t wanna be too far left or right. I think those can be tricky parts to find in the voice.
What is it that you have that makes you so much fun to work with? Well… I think the thing that makes me work with him the best is his confidence in the work that he puts out. What we do is kind of a joke but it’s not a joke. It’s kind of a thing we do with each other. We go out and do a performance and he makes me come out of it with the same kind of joy that he brought out. It’s an honor that I get to listen to him sing because he brings out so much emotion. In a lot of his songs the emotion is in the singing. That
