I don't think you have to have experienced things to understand them.
I've heard that Bon Iver liked my cover of 'Skinny Love.'
I read the three 'Hunger Games' books in a week and because I liked them so much I wrote 'Just a Game.'
I wanted to give people a taste of my own music through the sound and style of my covers.
I love Adele and Lykke Li. I also listen to classical music as well.
