I always try to further educate myself about music, and musicians that have paved the way for artists today. Lately I've learned a lot about Joan Jett. Her voice is extremely unique and she pursued rock and roll at a time when it was unheard of to have women try and attempt. Lyrically she's very gifted and has impacted the way that I write music and lyrics. Her music tells a story and I love listening to her music.
