What three genres of music have inspired you?
  • Metal: This was the first music I really got into, when my brother showed me Metallica when I was in first grade. I was blown away by it!
  • Pop Punk: I also grew up on pop punk because it's what was super popular in the early 2000s.
  • Late 90s Pop: My older sister was really into 90s pop music and would play it all the time growing up. It is something that definitely brings back memories of my younger years when I hear it.
