hi was nice was great to be here this is amazing came here think about five years ago i was sixteen and just about to release first single tim mcgraw and so were traveling up west coast in a rental car in taurus and was i was doing homework backseat was like home schooled tenth grade so that was when we made this trip to san jose and came guys first time its wonderful to be back here and have so many come out of this time around its amazing yes we started year going on tour and uh start up asia and then we were europe two months so was like three months of major worldwide touring so singapore was first place that we went on tour always always just yeah always thatll do it i think that you just said it thats the essential ingredient cat think weve all seen effects of social media and how that can connect people and for me i grew up when that was just about to set fire world you know i was i think in seventh eighth grade when everybody started having profile online and everybody was all about whos your friend whos commenting on page and then it became the youtube generation where everybodys looking at videos everybodys making a video blogs and you know makeup tutorials or this that or back to school outfit shopping you know everybody is catching on to communicating by making videos and learning how edit them and its i think its fantastic because its just new skill set for this new generation yes i this like three times this week makes me so happy and its like five six lion cubs and theres lion trainer and youre like oh the lion cubs cute theyre walking around and then they they jump up on lion trainer and start hugging him and then theyre like making all these sounds that you dont know you you wouldnt know what sounds are lion make but its amazing its its like like like hugging him and hes like keep going my hair and hes like stories its amazing its hes like scottish and no like hugging him and love so much and know know think its so cute they came up with that curious think me it it more comes as a general idea and my favorite thing about song writing is its so spontaneous and unpredictable whats gonna hit me first whether its be general thought like for example you know ill be going through something when wrote song love story thats song wrote sitting bedroom floor because i like my parents didnt want date him and so got this idea my head it just popped into head you romeo youre throwing pebbles daddy said stay away from juliet and i didnt know where song that was gonna fit just started there and built out from there and its crazy how fastest songs write and my favorites ones that just happened in just surge of idea surge inspiration and its usually something im going through at time its very hard for me to come up with just some random metaphor situation if not going through havent recently just gone through it but i think when growing up my mom was mom talks metaphor lot and so think i grew up just understanding metaphor and just kind of loving that how you could take something youre going through and speak about in different way that applies how youre feeling to something completely different but connect it so i think for me it a idea and feeling an emotion there are there are several moments in song and i wont finish song dont have these moments you go like act line and its always that same feeling like thats the exactly what meant you know if youre writing session im always the one who will like be like sitting there for second and then i'll say and if its that moment where youre just like that thats one thats i have have about four five of those lines song for me to put on record like lines just like yes so thats my favorite part is then when the song goes into its phase of being recorded and then being put on album and when youre playing people first time when comes across those lines that you really feel like zingers or like say it really well i love watching peoples reactions if they if they if comes across like if they get those lines yes it well me i never really the the writing switch off its always on because i kind have always felt like to make album that i proud enough of to gives fans and and say here you know allow this your life it has to be like has two half years of writing and that way you know you have your best stuff because im so tough on myself drive myself insane writing records and albums because its like alright like forty fifty songs and then thirteen fourteen make it thats lot of it down and making sure youre getting best stuff so for me it it it takes awhile and ive been writing ever since i stopped writing last album theres lot thats happened and i never really talk about personal life but write about it so thats basically what the album is about as always well im very im im obsessed with the latest song that ive written very guilty of that because like my favorite thing is always newest thing that ive written but lately ive become little more self aware because had this song that wrote when was sixteen and spark and i played it on in few shows this these little bar shows when you know when was playing tic crowds like forty and fifty people and being psyched about that many people showing up and played few times it got the internet and when was putting together fans just kept saying over over again sparks fly want this to be on record and so went back revisited it and i kind of re wrote some things and updated it and put out as single its its been one fastest rising songs weve had record so its kind taught me lesson about the old stuff maybe possibly being good enough to put on new projects i i think that its song sparks fly fact that it technically was started when was sixteen and ended up on album in sort different form in two thousand ten thats while for it to turn into what was be so id say that was probably the longest developing song that ive ever put out because most them and especially having written this entire new record without any co writers it all happened really fast some very impatient like if dont have song finished ill obsess over it wont sleep that night and ill just edit constantly to point cant focus on conversation and everyone around annoyed because like clearly youre working on something just finish it so that that one was a long time to kind of get where needed be well there bunch different circumstances that could bring about co write if if im writing somebody elses project thats always exciting for me like i love put myself somebody elses shoes and you know think about their style of music incorporating their story live what theyre feeling its really fun for me do that so love writing for other people and then you know if im working idea but theres like a stopping point where cant really figure out like where this course is going or if im if my hunch is right about hook or things like that if theres definite stopping point ill bring it to that trust or writer admire and just ask them what think lot times co writing i write really well people who dont even play instruments or because know lot times best co writers are really great at giving advice like course too long yes like thank you yes you know for me since i write so much dont whats gonna end up on record its i never want say well you know with this person because then doesnt make on record but arm and then writing for some other peoples projects in which case i feel we talking about because its like their project so yes but yeah yeah actually i kind of have become adapt yourself to it million different places to write when youre always on road because i just i dont have the luxury of saying well i have be in this certain room at this certain part town and has to be you know all one color tone and there has to be smart water in there know like its just youre never ever anywhere from more than two half seconds so you know ive written songs in airport bathrooms on paper towels ive written songs it hasnt come out yet you know in bus bunk wake up night have this idea and then so you write it and youre up four a. m. or you know i get awakened by song ideas all time and its just like i wake up like oh great because know wont forget i wont remember it morning have record it and then its this whole thing you check phone and its like mumbling dont you thought was great time yeah the idea is always end up in my phone because has great recording in there and you know for me its like you just write where ever whenever you can and thats been really fun for because sometimes walk into hotel room i been here i go back to december here like its its fun because you have these memories of writing songs all over the world not at that point in relationship because at that point theyre thinking that you know i would never have any reasons about song about them and then its when you know it when they start to you know treat me way that wouldn't reflect well on them song if were be ive had guy your write about this are you yeah i am well and think that they would decide that before asking me on date or before we become couple or before all this stuff happens but it only occurs to it only it well him that only occurred him when when it when he it occurred him good song yeah because feel like song i love it when song story and story develops and i my favorite stories have really beautiful characters and feel like you can most accurately describe character if you know them one favorite songs that ever put out is called fifteen and its about my freshman year high school and it kind chronicles my best friend abigail and and me and way that we went through our freshman year high school lessons we learned and it thats kinda how like tell stories from point view of really knowing what youre talking about and knowing where youre coming from because you were there pretty uhm i im really in it when im on stage and you know i go through roller coaster emotions performing my show because these all songs about people who have been my life lot them some them arent in my life anymore and you know sometimes itll hit you in just right way and when emotion hits you strongly doesnt matter youre front twenty thousand people it hits you and you me im im in those songs fully feeling all of it until hear crowd starts screaming at song at which point just like like cant stop smiling because my favorite world is the sound of thousands people screaming all at once its its really amazing sound and so im completely feeling all sadness and frustration and anger and hurt and then crowd starts screaming everything is world yeah think really has think that you can only hope that as writer you start trying different things in each try different chords different structures songs different beats that youve never really explored that path before you know and i think having always been writer first im obsessed with syncopation of of way words sound when theyre said certain way and once ive kind done something once i always want go to different direction and and never repeat myself so as writer i think that i always hope that my music would constantly be changing because you never want make same album twice same song twice and you know my greatest hope has been that as they grow my fans will grow up with me and as i change my life changes my musical change as well so wish me luck there well theres lot of that lately because we have this thing called tea party room and you know have like four five meet greets before the show but after show theres a meet and greet for surprise people who did not know that because they were picked tea party room which means that they were like going crazy dancing whole time dressing some absurd crazy costume from music videos or just knew every single word and just screaming whole time like people get picked for different reasons but its its been crazy lately because lot people have been going costume route so look out and like my guitar player like lean dressed like chicken and i like im trying find meaning dont know but you know look out like santa claus duck tape their entire body in neon duct tape or people who have just like made giant cupcakes around and theyre like theyre this big or people who have like dressed up from mean video something like that but then theres just these ones were like the girls dressed as like theres like clown starfish like i dont know why but i love it like and so theres theres lot costume stuff going on lately look around you see someone dressed up as giant cow and dont know why we dont why either but its its welcome yeah you for me like its never okay matter how many times i see little kids with cancer like theres theres at no point ever become accustomed to it no point ever just brush off say oh well theres another kid whos dying you know and i over the years ive toured these places and you see like little girl who come through and shes like so full of life but shes lost hair and come through year later and like hey lexie how you doing just like im doing good the your parents update you in and then you come by like half later and shes not there so yeah mean ever since was little kid ever since i was like eight years old my dad has been telling save my money or investing utilities and because my dad stockbroker and he lives and breathes it mean hes like my dad so passionate about what does in way passionate about music this guy lives being stockbroker that is his thing like and anybody who talks him like hell talk about me first five minutes like investing in and mean its just like he loves it and so i thought the like i didnt know what stockbroker was when was eight but i would just tell everybody thats be like like know first of school and like some guys be grow up and dont know i love my dad so much because hes his job and i just saw happy it made him i just thought like i can broke stocks like favorite music video make okay well i love i loved making video from mine because it dealt with this whole story line and it its like got flashbacks and flash forwards and there also bunch of little kids on set and theyre so fun they make it so much fun because theres lot sitting around and waiting on sets and we were in maine so were sitting around waiting on beach and so all sudden youre just playing with like ten kids in there like wrestling with each other and throwing sand in like playing catch and just makes whole thing much more fun is so i think that was favorite make we yeah we kennebunkport maine which was this little town that always dreamed going to and so shooting video there was amazing its coastal town in it was it was really awesome loved it well i am i go online just kind google like what people famous musicians from certain area and i just picked my favorites because know ive ive loved so many different kinds music never really been genre specific as far as what listen so theres always like favorite song mine for from certain area and you know its really fun to do like few every night like you know in california do like god only knows beach boys and men sweet escape by gwen stefani its like its just been really really fun because its just me and my guitar during acoustic set and can just do whatever because its just you and your instrument its really spontaneous part show yeah know its kind unusual usual when rap know people really like i guess people dont see that coming but id i love lose yourself and so we were in area where like think were in michigan and i just started like i started playing acoustically lose yourself just start off like and everybodys just like what is happening really weird but i just i love great song dont care what genre its and dont care if its completely opposite from what people think is you know country music and i just i love great song i really liked better than revenge its song off of album speak now and its about a girl stole my boyfriend and got mad and wrote song about it and we do this like just just furious and angry and fun and like have this gigantic bridge that drops down from ceiling and me and my my two backup singers on bridge just like throwing our hair around and head banging and so thats really fun one to do and for me theyre all there i think dear john has fun payoffs if go see the show i really love singing out because the end its got this you know pyro filled payoff the end say know you come show because crowds are really kind of steadily ear piercing loud throughout whole show theyre amazing its really hard gauge like which is moment that they're loudest because theyre just really really loud all the time i do seem like that kind person but i i havent done it yet i kind of think back on situations when got them like one when i fell love with that particular guitar like theres one my guitars its acoustic and its blue and its got koi fish swimming up the neck and like inlays its just beautiful and was bob taylor sent eighteenth birthday remember first time like opened this guitar case and theres fish on the guitar its like this gorgeous guitar and so thats what remember about that and then theres sparkly guitar that i play that has hundreds of tiny little crystals on it and looks had made but really we just glued them on yeah and and sometimes little ones fall they fall off so have to with tweezers so thats always what cracks me about that because its like everyones like where did you have your guitar specially made im like super glue like o. k. well i was weird sound made those whered sorry the first one is electric second one is acoustic theres twelve string and theres the blue koi fish one and then theres four five and theres ukulele again joe i i watch lot tv like lot tv uhm and my favorites like crime shows where starts out and you know you cant miss the first scene arousing miss like the discovery of this crime scene and and then you know that like twists turns of all i love csi law order svu without trace and CIS lock up raw just trouble you have no idea mostly history im obsessed with other time periods and make i just im always looking up museums or like historical society or like historical landmarks go to in particular city are and recently reading lot books on like john adams and abraham lincoln and then read this like seven hundred fifty page book called kennedy women and it dates back to like the the lineage of first kennedy woman came across from ireland on boat and like eighteen sixties and its just this crazy interesting read thats been reading lately im sort of history i was no wait i was thirteen i think yeah but i did i was i was i have lot different im always have different ideas as like you know this would be good idea and one summer i was i was at shore we suspend summers in stone harbor jersey and all my friends back pennsylvania and nothing to do and so had this epiphany im gonna be novelist and im gonna write novels and thats gonna be my career path and so i would write different chapters of this book and send them back to my friends and id write them into into book under different names but totally describe personalities and it was really fun way to spend summer my parents so frustrated cause would never go outside just like locked this little study with my computer but ive always been writer first its its my favorite thing is how you can convey thought or story completely describe character or situation through words and right combination of words and process of editing and re editing and re thinking and imagining and you get these little mini just epiphany ideas that come to you and i think that thats what loved about writing novel and love about poetry its about song writing what love do im yeah i watch lot tv yeah crime shows thats pretty much hobby list absolutely i think that you have love it more than anything else and you have to love it for so many more reasons other than your idea what end result could be like dont make album so that you can get platinum record hang your wall and you dont go on tour so that you can hang sold out plaques up in know your bedroom its like so many little stepping stones and so many people have this idea that its like you get discovered get record deal and then you record song and song goes number one and then its like its never like that like it very rarely is like one thing leads to another which leads to another and results its its so many dead ends and switching directions and going back and re planning rethinking and so many interviews and strategy meetings and management meetings and pr meetings and so many things that are so outside of music that you have love music so much that just your hour and half two hours on stage every night is worth everything else that youre go through and also i would say player instrument cause its easier than dragging around like karaoke machine you know like when starting out you have to provide own background music and its just so much easier player instrument i think for me beauty is sincerity i think that there so many different ways someone can be beautiful someone so funny that there makes them beautiful how look because theyre sincere or somebodys like really emotional and like moody and thoughtful and stoic but that makes them beautiful because thats sincerely who they are or you look out crowd and see someone so happy that theyre smiling from ear ear and not sincerity comes through i think thats what makes somebody beautiful and ive never i felt like theres just one way to be beautiful you short straight hair curly or whatever some people have their definitions of their types you know for me i think that when meet someone and theres that magical thing about them that makes them unforgettable its that theyre sincere and honest whoever they are be that funny happy sad you know going through rough time sarcastic think that these personality traits come through when somebody is really sincere as make beautiful thank you sandals and those gonna so great will see you later thank you
