Meraki was an experimental project in many ways because it was full of firsts. These are the first songs I wrote on guitar. And I think it’s safe to say this was my first time going in this direction musically. I was inspired by artists who write more unconventionally, like Fiona Apple and Joni Mitchell. I was also inspired by folk style artists, like Middle Brother, Bob Dylan, and Sara Watkins. Things always take a different shape in the room, but that’s where my brain started!

Stay tuned for more backstory behind each song on Meraki :)
