Dream Venue to Perform at: Massey Hall in Toronto is my favourite venue of all time. Arenas are cool, but playing Massey Hall is the one I’d like to check off my bucket list.
Dream Collaboration: I’d love the opportunity to write and play with Eric Church. His music has been a heavy inspiration for me.
Dream Mentor: I’ve already got them with Dallas Smith and Scott Cooke! Having Dallas and Scotty as part of my team has been amazing; they’re a huge support system and they know how to light a fire under me when I need it!
Dream Venue to Perform at: Playing at Wembley Stadium would be pretty amazing!
Dream Collaboration: A collaboration with Willie Nelson would be unreal, he’s one of the very few living legends.
Dream Mentor: Swedish producer Max Martin – I’d love to learn about his Jedi-like relentless hit making ways!
