Liner Notes: I’m a singer, so I have a pretty eclectic palette. In short, there are two things I look for in every song: 1. Can I sing to it? 2. Does it make me feel good? If the answer is yes, chances are, it ends up in my library. “Good” is relative and I consume music with all 5 senses – so the A Side transports me to moments spent cruising through Miami, tunes blasting, salty coastal air wafting, sun streaming in.

I’ve always been a fan of B sides, so for this mixtape, I chose to slow it down. These aren’t necessarily ballads – each one has a major hook – they’re more for those cozy Friday nights with a wine glass in hand and dim, intimate lighting. Hence the title, “High Good, Low Feel.”
