A closer look into JNNA
Q: How does it feel to know your song Closer to You is being shared to hundreds of thousands of people?
A: I got the chills just thinking about it now! Seriously, it's the most insane feeling I've ever had! It just makes me so happy to know that people are jamming out to that song at home, in their cars, or at parties. It's unreal.
Q: What was the story behind Closer to You?
A: Casey wanted this track to be about chasing after something you want, whether it's a person or an ambition in life.
Q: If you could perform with anyone and anywhere, who would it be and where?
A: Flume. Any festival of any year.
Q: What is your earliest memory of music?
A: Driving around with my older sisters listening to D'Angelos, "One Mo Gin" and "Devils Pie"
Q: If you weren't a singer/songwriter, what would you be doing?
A: I'd either be working with animals (for instance being one of the people to take care of baby pandas) or an Entertainment Reporter!
Q: Was there someone who influenced you to sing and/or get involved with music?
A: Well when I was really little my parents let me take lessons with a coach just because I loved to sing. But more recently, I think my biggest influence is my dad. He passed away three years ago and he always just wanted to me pursue whatever made me happiest. I know he'd be proud to know I'm singing and working towards my dreams.
Q: Is there someone you'd like to thank or acknowledge over the course of your journey so far?
A: I'd love to thank my love Doug, he has been my biggest means of support and given me more confidence than I've ever had. He really is the reason I'm where I am today.
Q: Whats in store for us from JNNA--short term & long term?
A: Short term, I'm going to continue going into the studio with more Producers and not only work on collaborations but continue to work on and release my own music as well. Long term, I plan on performing and touring festivals and venues across the world! All in all, I plan on working hard to show you all JNNA!
