The albums ‘Heaven On Earth‘ and ‘Runaway Horses‘ and ‘Live Your Life Be Free‘ were harking back to when I was a young girl and listening to Californian radio – lush productions, complicated melodies, harmonies like the Beach Boys and the Mamas and Papas. That’s what those albums remind me of.

Harmonies are nice.
Growing up, it was just me and my mom, so we would play games where we’d listen to the radio and sing harmonies to each other.
It takes a lot to put a 5-piece band on, even though we need it. We need those harmonies; I need those four background singers – not because I can’t sing but because I need to relay the message of what the song is emotionally, or the feeling, period.
