“I had serious performance stage fright. I kept my singing to the confines of my shower and car, while doing the dishes, and in my basement, but I would burst out crying if anyone asked me to sing.”
“I'm inspired by almost every artist I come across.”
“I don't think of myself as "a lesbian musician." It's not one and alone. I think of myself as a musician.”
