Twelve Songs that Have Impacted My Life and Career…

“American Idiot” – Green Day

This song is not only the biggest “F you, Government” anthem ever, it was one of the first songs I listened to when getting into them.

“21 Guns” – Green Day

This was mine and my brother’s go-to carpool karaoke song. I still belt out it on when I miss him.

“Still Breathing” – Green Day

This was my “rehab song” in 2017-2018. Since I was 14, I was hanging around people who weren’t good for me and doing things I wasn’t proud of. I’d been in and out of rehab and hospitals when I’d taken it too far, but always ended up back at rock bottom. When I lost my younger brother, who had similar struggles, I vowed to get sober. This song kept me pushing and whenever I feel I’m gonna slip, I put it on to remind myself not to give up.

“Cartier” – Caroline Dare

I met Caroline at a writer’s round in East Nashville and her song “Cartier” struck a chord with me. I had just gone through a pretty messy breakup and the song is a huge reminder of the bar I should set for myself when it comes to finding the one.

“Black and White” – The Band CAMINO

This song, every single time I get into a relationship, seems to be the forefont theme-song. I scream it to my partner whenever I can.

“2/14” – The Band CAMINO

This was the first song I listened to from The Band Camino. From there, they’ve been huge influence on my songwriting style and my motivation for getting back into music.

“Lifeline” – Kingston Hythe

This was the first song I’d heard that perfectly described how I felt when I had a traumatic death in my family (my little brother). Despite relating to other songs and writing my own, this one has stuck with me the most.

Everything on Taylor Swift’s “Folklore” and “Evermore” albums. Every song.

These collections are her best songwriting, her best composition, her best EVERYTHING. It’s all inspired me and my songwriting. It’s inspired my upcoming album (coming this fall).

“Chapstick” – Hastings

This song has an addicting beat that gets you hooked by the first line. An amazing metaphor for love addiction.

“Blank Me” – Hastings

This is the ultimate breakup song if you wanna forget about the person, but still love them. Like, why do you have to be such a good person when leaving me? Just make it easier and be an a**hole or something.

“Y.O.U” – The Break Plans

The ultimate breakup song if it’s the complete opposite. Your partner treated you badly? This song is GREAT for that.

“Parked Out by the Lake” – Dean Summerwind

There aren’t many country songs I genuinely like, but this one’s definitely one that sticks with you. It’s really easy to sing along to. The lyrics are serene, a bit repetitive, but beautiful and full of deep meaning. I think a lot of best songs are written by the lake, as cliche as it sounds.
