If I could build out my dream tour, it would probably be a bit of a chaotic masterpiece. My dad was in the music industry in Memphis, TN my whole life so I grew up listening to everything from Hip-Hop & R&B, to Rock, Reggae, and Pop. I’m not sure if it was this kind of upbringing or the fact that I’m a Libra that makes me wonder if I even have a singular favorite artist or song, but when thinking about who I would want to see perform on the same tour together I somehow was able to narrow it down to just a few people.
For starters, I would have to have Norah Jones on the bill, because, in so few words, she is the reason why I sing. My mom played her constantly when I was growing up and I couldn’t help but fall in love with her sultry voice and poetic lyrics. Several years later I was able to surprise my mom with concert tickets to her show at The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, and I’m not exaggerating when I say that we both cried the entire time. It was such a dreamy performance.
My second band would be The Flaming Lips. I first got to know their music in my early 20’s when they played Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis and then again in Centennial Park in Nashville. It was a show unlike anything I had ever seen before and it was in that moment that I realized what being an entertainer truly meant. I mean sure, it all looks like one big acid trip is happening on stage, but not a single person in the audience is bored while watching it all unfold. From the lights to the balloons and bubbles and the human hamster wheel, it truly is a show that I could watch again and again.
My last artist, but most certainly not least, would be Dua Lipa. The disco/dance flare that she is bringing back in music is unmatched, making her the new ‘Pop Princess’ that I cannot wait to see perform live for the first time very soon. I love how she effortlessly blends brutally honest stories to catchy melodies over a beat that you can’t help but dance to. Even when she’s talking about falling out of love, she finds a way to make it fun, and that’s exactly the kind of music that I want to create. She really is a massive inspiration for me at the moment.

Keep up with her on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
