Q: What songs are on your ipod at the moment?

I’d like to collaborate with Shad! I think he’s got some crazy good lyrics and a wicked style!

I won the Bell Media Emerging Artist Award for the month of August. I was really honored to win and this meant that I got national radio play for my single “Keep Moving On” so I was really stoked on that!

I think that they are both crazy important if you want a really strong song… Having good melodies that compliment great lyrics make for a killer track!

I’m big into sports so I do that whenever I can, whether it’s watching them on TV or actually playing.
