How excited are you to release these new tracks?

CR: I am beyond excited to be releasing these two songs. I don’t know how to describe it other than a mix of fear and freedom. These songs are everything that I am. That’s what music is. It’s just little pieces of us, glimmers of our souls that we put out into the world. I hope people will listen, because that means they’re listening to me. I’ve poured my heart and soul into these tracks, and I am so ready for them to finally be out. 

When people listen to your music, what are you hoping they get out of it?

CR: All I can ever hope for when someone listens to my music is that they feel understood. I hope they find that gentle nod of understanding that only the right lyrics and melody can provide at times. I hope it makes them feel whatever they’re trying to feel in the moment, and I hope they feel it passionately.

How would you describe the sound of your music?

CR: I would describe my sound as punk pop-meets-rock. I think it’s also somewhat of a combination of punk rock instrumentation, pop melodies, and folk-inspired lyrics. 

Who would you say are some of your musical influences?

CR: Some of my biggest musical influences include Queen, YUNGBLUD, Taylor Swift, Noah Kahan, Machine Gun Kelly, and 5SOS.

Did you always know that music was something you wanted to pursue?

CR: Music has always been calling my name. I pretty much always knew I wanted to pursue music as a career, a lifestyle, an art form, and everything in between. Music is the only thing that makes sense to me. I’m not a natural at anything in life, but music seems to be the closest I get to being one. I don’t think there was a moment in time that I knew. I’ve just always known.
