WHAT MAKES A WOMAN SEXY: If she can write a song, that’s all I need.

I NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT: a pen. I seriously have written lyrics all over my arms, the dashboard of my car, receipts, napkins… anything. When the idea comes, I have to write it down otherwise I’ll immediately forget. The best songs come quickly for me.
I WROTE THIS SONG: This song “5 Spot” is obviously about the 5 spot. I had a late night at one of the Monday night dance events where I saw all these wonderful people dancing and having the time of their lives. It inspired me to write about it. Dancing, drinking, and having fun!
