MHB: Who were some of your biggest musical influences growing up?
LILAW: My musical taste was very scattered growing up. I went through phases. Pop/Contemporary-wise I've always loved Britney, Michelle Branch, Hilary Duff, Anna Nalick, Norah Jones, Kelly Clarkson, Maroon 5, and on the alternative side Paramore, Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco, Lana Del Rey, and Ryn Weaver. I also listened to a bunch of bluegrass/rock/and folk music from artists like Alison Krauss, Mumford & Sons, Don McLean, The Beatles, Queen, Jimi Hendrix, Peter, Paul, & Mary, Simon & Garfunkel, Gabrielle Aplin... I could talk about the musicians I love for hours, honestly, but this is the short list.
