hudson river park, NY
"Having grown up down the road from Lake Geneva in Switzerland, I have always found a lot of solace being near large bodies of water. Some will say it's my double water sign (Pisces and Scorpio ... beware) and those some are me. Sitting by the water and watching the ripples forming and disappearing is the closest thing to meditation for me. It's my favorite place to journal. Something not a lot of people know is that I journal and write music in the same notebook which allows me to relive, capture, and express my most potent emotions in my music, as my immediate reaction and reflection of a situation are often just a page flip away. When I first started writing music, I was still a student at NYU and my dorm at the time was only steps from Hudson River Park. A pretty pivotal and painful romantic experience took place there which ended up being the inspiration behind my first single Dirty Little Secret. I would come back there to think and journal and the more I did the more I realized the power that that location had in helping me find the words I wanted to write and share with that song. If anyone knows any other secret and serene bodies of water in the tristate area please hit me up so I can finish up some projects!"
