Where have you been staying in 2020?

I live in San Diego, CA … in the City Heights neighborhood to be more precise. That is where I have been the majority of this year.

What have you been doing during times of quarantine?

Well, after losing the ability to tour and play music and at the same time work at bars while I’m home I ended up jobless for the first half of the year. I sat at home like almost every other person on earth did. I spent all my time writing. Half way through the year a friend hired me as a driver for their dispensary so I’ve spent a good deal of time driving weed all over San Diego since then.

Have you found or re-found any hobbies?

I have been running this year, something I’ve done a ton throughout different times in my life. I really ran a lot this year, at least for me. I’ve already kind of fell off the good habit I made and need to get back on it. Maybe tomorrow.

What have you been listening to lately?

This year has been a lot of The Beach Boys, RTJ, Joe Jackson, Slow Draw, A Giant Dog, that new DFMK record.

Has your songwriting process changed this year?

Not so much really. Doing Palm Trees has been different because It’s a solo album and I had full control over everything which isn’t the case in Western Settings and Hey, Chels. But as far as how I write, it didn’t really change.

Is there any message that you would like to convey to fans or soon-to-be fans?

I’m not sure I really do. To quote Rick Froberg’s banter at a show in Hamburg we played in 2019 for Booze Cruise Festival… “I wish I had something profound to say”

What is something positive that has happened to you during 2020?

I released Palm Trees and Jax kissed me.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
