From LasVegasWeekly.com :
On opening for Katy Perry: I had no idea I’d get to do this, but I’m more than thrilled. I’ve known Katy throughout the years just casually here and there ,and she’s always been really warm and someone who as a performer is just a powerhouse and someone I look up to in a lot of ways. Her show is fantastic; it’s very Cirque du Soleil, and I find myself going out there every night to watch it even though I’ve seen it a couple times. It’s such eye candy.
On playing Las Vegas: This is a place for escape and celebration and party, and that energy is felt in the audience, too. When I’ve played there before, it feels like people show up ready to dance with you, and that’s the best feeling.
On indie music versus pop: I have no idea how we’ve been lucky to have a footing in both genres. I think pop itself has changed a lot, and there’s a lot less boundaries as to what it specifically has to be. I’m attracted to more indie-style production, but I really still love a great, strong pop top line. That was always a challenge for me, to find my flavor of pop that felt really authentic.
