– When I wrote the song ‘Silver Moon,’ my inspirations came from musicians and singers like Leadbelly, Ella Jenkins, Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith and more. You can feel their soul and the pain in their voices, pure and honest. They had something to say and it meant something. That’s why I wanted to name my EP “Silver Moon.” I want to give back what music has given me so if I could to that it would make me very happy.
