You initially came to Texas for a two-month residency at the Continental Club, but ultimately decided to make the stay permanent.
I fell in love with Austin, the food, the people, the weather – really everything. The residency was going well and I had gained a little local following such that all of the signs pointed in the direction of staying – and I’m really glad that I did. Austin is such a supportive musical community; everyone is really rooting for one another to do well and that’s a beautiful thing.
The EP includes songs you wrote as well as a couple outside cuts including Brennen Leigh’s “Analog.” What drew you to that song?
I discovered and fell in love with her music a few months before I moved to Austin. Then when I moved, her show was one of the first I caught. We became friends and I asked her if she would mind if I included "Analog," which is such a great simple song very much in the vein of what I do and how I live, on the record and she was all for it. It’s pretty simple how it all came about.
