How did you get such an amazing voice? I am just wondering because all my friends that i have told to watch you have been asking me the same question.Me and my friends are the same age as you... :)

I have my mom to thank for my voice. She has an amazing voice. I think practicing has improved my voice alot too. I am now getting instruction from a voice coach that I have never had before. So I am learning new things all the time and practicing more often.

Q

Do you want to become a musician later, or will you keep it just a hobby? I love your music by the way :)

I have always loved to write and sing. I actually can't help myself from doing those two things. Thoughts and feelings start getting bottled up inside me and I have to get them out somehow. I started to share those songs with family and friends and that is how my journey as a musician got started. I don't know where it will all lead. I would say writing is my first love.

Q

I love the videos of your sister- keep em coming! Is she musical? Do you have other siblings? Are you parents or other family members musical? Thanks for everything, from Miriam- your biggest fan!

my little sister is the comedian of the family. She keeps us all laughing. Today she told me that I am "Not the boss of of what she wears". She does play the guitar and sing too. I also have a brother. He plays the drums. My mom is very musical. I get my voice from her!

Q

Can you describe your process for writing a song? Also - do you take any voice lessons? Thanks so much for sharing so much!

For me a new song almost always begins with the piano, the melody and then the words.

Q

Do you ever get writers block and cant think of a song to write?

A

About every two weeks I am usually inspired by something that gives me enough material to write a new song. I do sometimes get stuck on a specific melody or piano piece.

Q

When you were younger, what did you want to grow up to be?

A

A writer. In some ways being a musician is my way of sharing my writing.

Q

Where do you go to find new music?

Most often new music is introduced to me through iTunes, the Radio and most importantly word of mouth. My mom or dad might say "hey you should really check this song out" because they know it might inspire me.
