What are the best lessons you’ve learned so far, since you started your career and up to your solo career now?

What have been your brothers’ reactions to your single “Chains”?
“Really positive. They both really love the song and were supportive on Twitter and stuff, which felt great. I played them some more of the record now and they really love it. It feels good. I think we were a band for a long time, so there always is going to be a sensitivity there that I feel, but I’m thrilled to have brothers that support me and I support them in their solo ventures.”
Do you have a style icon?
“James Dean; he’s the best.”
One-word description of your personal style?
All-time favorite movie?

What about a comedy?
“Something’s Gotta Give.”
“Prince. For the stories and music.”
