1. Don't Speak - No Doubt
The first song that made me fall in love with music, the first song that I picked for myself, I heard it on the radio and decided I wanted the album. I asked my dad to go to the record store so I could get the album.
2. Lauryn Hill - The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill
This is the song that made me want to write my own songs. I thought the lyrics and melodies for this song were incredible. To me it's one of the best songs ever!
3. Sixpence None The Richer - Kiss Me
The first song I learned on the guitar.
4. The Beatles - Strawberry Fields
My favourite song from the Beatles, I was in high school and everyone was listening to Hip Hop and pop and I was kind of an outcast, I listened to all of dad's tapes.
5. Feist - Secret Heart
I remember watching a video of Feist performing Secret Heart and thought...yup, this is what I wanna do...on a stage, playing the guitar, playing my song! I started performing at shows after that.
