was your group formed? Or
how did you get into the business?
initial step into the music business was actually taken for me by
Nemesis Records. A friend of mine had contacted Nemesis and told them to
have a look at my webpage. Minh-Dan Pham followed up on me and we talked
for a short while. As we talked more I guess I was just convinced!
Nemesis seemed very promising, and so I sent my demo and a song that I
had written ("I Never Knew".) After hearing that song, I was
signed and the rest is history.
are your ultimate goals and/or dreams?
ultimate goal is really to just reach people in an honest way. I want to
know that something I've written has somehow made a connection with
someone. That it is helping them heal in one way or another. It's always
nice to receive emails or messages on the Nemesis message board from
someone who has felt the same way I have. That's got to be the best
feeling because then I know that what I'm doing is worthwhile. Of course
my second most ultimate goal is to the have the coolest hair!
advice do you have for other upcoming artists?
believe. I believe we all create our reality. If your dream is strong
enough and you persevere, it's bound to happen sooner or later.
are your biggest influences? (Musical
influences me actually. I take in everything around me and so
consequently I am influenced by everything: from tv shows, to the
weather, to the short blonde guy that I always used to see on the bus
going to school. He definitely influenced my hair colour.
inspires me. Feelings inspire me. Anything overwhelming inspires me. I
admit now that I am a very dramatic person so if something has moved me
in some way or another, I am inspired to capture the moment.
are some of the biggest challenges that you have faced?
I've faced so many it's hard to pick just one. It was hard growing up,
it is still hard growing up. I faced a lot of discrimination when I was
younger as a different kind of individual. Now I am facing a whole new
world of independence and that's so hard as well. There was also a time
when I couldn't face being alone and I just couldn't live with myself.
Really, being so sensitive to everything, I find every challenge
enormous. It amplifies all my feelings. Though it does leave me in a lot
of pain sometimes, at the same time when I am content, it's twice as
much happiness. Sometimes I feel itís a curse, other times itís a
do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Hobbies and leisure activities?
take random pictures. I color my hair. I go have bubble tea. I karaoke.
I listen to Brittney. I write. I play dress-up. I clean. I surf the net.
I answer my mail. I play pool. I sit in a bookstore for half the day. I
take ridiculously long showers. I stare. I enjoy the free time.
you have a significant other?
are your favorite movies/TV shows?
used to be addicted to Dawson's Creek but ever since Joey and Pacee
"connected" I found closure and let go. I havenít watched
since. Plus, I don't have any time of follow up on it now. I am also a
chronic Friends fan. If I were a Friends character, I'd be Monica
because I organize like there's no tomorrow!
are your favorite foods?
onions, no chunks of garlic. Besides that I love everything! I love
food. Sadly, that might just turn out to be my downfall. LOL!
