"Sometimes you come across an Artist who can move you with their voice and take you places with their songwriting. The kind of Artist that gives you goosebumps when you get the chance to see them live. I have always strived to be that kind of Artist, and take it as the highest compliment when someone tells me I moved them to tears - or it felt like I was singing their story. That's everything." - BMA
