I've been feeling very thankful lately for the team of people I have around me. When I first moved to LA, I didn't know a single person and now roughly 5 years later, I have a badass music squad that pushes me to be the best songwriter and artist I can be. I believe collaboration is so key when it comes to making great music. Whether it's working with other artists, songwriters, or producers, we learn so much from the people around us. I much prefer being in a room with a couple of other people writing and recording a song. I love feeding off of other people's energy, ideas, and throwing out my ideas also to see if they stick. If my idea isn't cool enough, I want my collaborators to tell me so we can find a better one! It's not about ego; it's about coming up with the best material possible. It's great to have a circle of people you can trust to bounce ideas off of, send demos to and talk about strategy. Whether you're an artist, producer, or songwriter, I encourage anyone to find their team. You know what they say:, 'Team work makes the dream work"!
