#Quote
1I was kind of an outcast in school 'cause I always kept to myself and was writing poetry and then going on tour with my brother band all the time, so kids didn't know what to make of me.
2I'm a total protein shake junkie nerd. I get creative every morning - you never know what you're gonna get in my shake... fruit? Peanut butter? Ice-cream?
3It felt very natural to me to write a Christmas song, but at the same time I had to really put all sorts of pressure aside and just let the creativity flow and see what came out.
4Yes, my first memory of singing, in general, was of a Christmas song. And then listening to Christmas music was really the first music I was ever connected to.
5I took time off from school and traveled to Italy when I was 19, living with my extended family members. I must have slept in 30 different houses those months, taken in by people who'd never even met me.
6You need to love yourself and be yourself one hundred percent before you can actually love someone else.
7My earliest memories as a child are listening to Beatles records, and they are a big part of how I've learned to write pop songs.
8Everything around me inspires and influences me. Mainly love - falling in it, losing it, loving it and hating it.
9Music has been my everything since day one. It's been my shoulder to cry on, my rock and my best friend.
