I want to talk a little bit about the meaning behind my EP, Invisible Lines. Each song explores a different aspect of the title. Like You Do is about how we sell ourselves short by putting boundaries on our own potential. Keep Pretending explores the blurry line distinguishing a crush from true feelings. The Feeling’s Gone is about drawing the line and choosing to walk away from someone or a situation that is demanding way too much of you.

The past two weeks have been surreal. I just returned home from traveling to ten different cities, playing ten sold out concerts with the RAC live band. Throughout the entire process, from snuggling up in the van for hours while traveling into the next city, to loading into a venue and seeing it entirely empty, to pre-show butterflies, to stepping out on stage to absolutely electric crowds, to the adrenaline rush from playing that kept me up until the wee hours of the morning.. I loved and embraced it all. I had this strange, new feeling throughout the tour. It’s hard to describe, but I felt like I was exactly where I was supposed to be, completely in my element.
