Do you think being a woman and a musician is different from being a man and a musician? If so, how? Was there a moment that made a difference clear to you?

Yes, I do think that there is a difference. I remember a certain moment when I was the main vocalist in my band, and we had just finished playing our set at a show. The venue staff came up to us afterwards and started discussing business such as payment and equipment. I remember so well how they blatantly ignored me and only spoke to the males in my band, as if I could not understand the concepts that they were speaking of. I feel like it takes much more to be taken seriously as a female musician than being a male musician.

Why did you choose to play the instrument you play?

It's what I am most comfortable with. I've been singing since I was in grade school. Back in those days it was mostly Disney jams.
