Since settling back into your family home, how have your mornings been like?
Apart from enjoying a big silog-style breakfast, my mornings are made special with doses of early morning sunlight from walking my dog up and down the street.
Who were your pivotal influences growing up? And do they differ from now?
The Sound Of Music, Moulin Rouge, Adele, Sarah Vaughan, Jason Mraz, The Beatles and more. I come back to the same artists and musicals but the way I enjoy music has evolved with growing attention for certain details I didn’t always look out for. It was always a song’s vocal energy that would win me over – but these days my mind flies to chord progressions, honest songwriting, and artists that go against what’s familiar.
