TC: What do you want listeners to feel when they hear “Live for Love”?

MK: I think there’s no right or wrong way to feel listening to “Live For Love”. The spirit of the song speaks the truth that you’re free to feel sad, happy, strong or vulnerable and that you should never be afraid of those emotions. I hope the song can bring some light and a sense of safety to any listener.

MK: I could meet Dolly Parton in real life.

TC: Who are your musical influences?

MK: There are so many talented people I admire musically!! I definitely feel I really connect with Bryan Adams, Alison Krauss, Stevie Nicks and Dolly Parton. I pull inspiration from everywhere!
