What are your musical influences? N: Jazz, broadway, folk, pop, R&B, classical... Very broad. What are your musical inspirations? N: To be truthful.

If given the chance, what musician would you like to collaborate with? Rather this is to either write a song or be featured on a track. N: Taylor Swift.

What’s your brand new single about? N: The song "Show You My Love" is about gaining the bravery to show love in a world where it is often shunned or might be rejected... finding the right time, the right place.

What’s something you hope people take away from "Show You My Love?" N: I hope people take love away from it... and make more love!

Which songs on the new album were the most fun to write and which were the most challenging to write? N: Well, since the album is called Songs For Sorrow, I'm sure you can imagine that none of the songs are particularly "fun." They were cathartic to write and challenging to record. But the song "Oh, Emmanuel" was a bit of fun to record, searching for the best guitar solo, and the lyrics are a bit tongue-in-cheek.

Do you have any favourite tracks off of Songs For Sorrow? N: "Mountain Man is a "favourite of mine, and I love to perform it live as well. I also love "Balm In Gilead."

What are the new album's songs about? N: Songs For Sorrow has twelve songs exploring love, loss, and redemption. Do you have any favourite songs to perform live? Could be your own music or even a

cover. Any reason why? N: I love to perform "Mountain Man" live because it is so meditative but also groovy and can go so many places.

If you could perform a show this very second anywhere in the world, where would it be?

N: Montreux, Switzerland.

Are there any particular venues or cities that come to mind at all? N: Montreux, Paris, Berlin, Tokyo, Athens, London, Toronto, New York City... Should I go on? What do you currently have planned for the remainder of the year? N: To keep healthy and write and record new material, and finish up some older projects I've already started. And to do a lot more live performances in the coming year. Thanks for the time today, Natalie. Is there anything else you may want to add before you go? N: Thank you for the interview!
