TC: What do you want fans to feel when they listen to ‘Wanderlust’?
AC: I want them to feel that rush of excitement when you get to an airport, train station or in your car – knowing you’re going somewhere new! I want them to want to explore new places and want to dance around and groove while feeling that. I want us to go on an adventure together while listening to the song. It’s a song about travel and freedom and longing to explore. I hope it inspires listeners to do just that. Explore.

TC: What’s one thing that people who are just discovering you and your music would be surprised to know? 
AC: That I am a city girl with a country heart. I am inspired and influenced by many different genres, not just country. My dad is a bass player and I come from a musical family and was raised on Soul, Classic Rock, and Motown. I hope listeners can hear that in my music.

TC: Your dreams would come true if…
AC: I could collaborate with Shania Twain. Or Justin Timberlake. Or Lady Antebellum. There’s a few people on that list.

TC: If you only had 3 words to describe ‘Wild Eyed Wanderer’, how would you describe the EP?
AC: Soulful, encouraging and honest.

TC: What song are you most proud of on ‘Wild Eyed Wanderer’?
AC: All of them! That may sound like a “cookie-cutter” answer – but I really am proud of each song, and for different reasons. Each song is a reflection of who I am as an artist and as a person. I love each one!
