I'm just myself. That's the best way to put it.
I'm hungry. I'm ready to grow.
You just got with the flow because life is just all about how you feel.
If you like something, rock it. If you want to rock a cape every day, go for it.
I like to be quiet and play guitar and just chill.
There's always gonna be setbacks; there's always gonna be knockdowns. There's always gonna be people telling you, 'Hey, you suck!'
In order to find yourself, who you really are, you got to be with yourself; you got to hang out with yourself.
I'm trying to bring a little bit of every type of sauce into one type of sound. Something that's really fresh.
I might wear skinny pants one day; I might wear thrift shop pants the next day.
You can't get tired in the studio. It's really tough. But you just gotta keep on going.
I'm trying to make music that I like, and I love hip-hop. At the same time, I love guitar. I love rock and everything.
There were some times when I just wanted to quit making music.
It's not normal for a white guy to get corn rows; a lot of people judged me. I like the way it looks, so you have to be confident.
I didn't have no friends or nothing; I was a nerdy kid.
I was a sad kid.
All my dance moves are improv. I just make them up on the spot.
Miami is always super, duper lit.
Bieber's like my brother at this point.
I don't know what people think of me.
I moved to Dallas, and I started making music.
I got FL studios; I looked up how to make beats and how to record myself, and then I just started making music from there.
It has been wild, you know? I started out just putting a song that I made out on the Internet without being sure if anyone was going to like it, and it took me on tour around the world with Justin Bieber. It's been amazing!
I started making music... I guess I was 12, and I started playing 'Guitar Hero.' And you know, it got to a point where on expert, you can only exceed to a certain point. And so, you know, I was like, 'Let's play real guitar. Let's not waste more time.' So, I got my mom, I told her to buy me a guitar for Christmas, and I started making music then.
Once you have an established song, you can really come out of your shell and experiment with the sound you want to make.
When I was up in New York, the first record my parents bought me was the Terror Squad record with 'Lean Back.'
There are times pop music is the end result when I'm in the studio, but I don't really go in and say, 'Today I am going to make a pop song,' but it can happen.
I'm not worried about making a certain type of music or sticking to one type of music.
I'm just a fun guy.
I'm just trying to make music everybody can get happy to and vibe to and turn up to. So long as I keep making good music, everything's going to be OK.
My dad was always playing music. Not, like, playing music but listening to music.
I am just creating the music I enjoy to make, and people seem to enjoy it.
I just want to keep making music and see where everything goes.
I'm a pretty happy guy.
I think a show is more of an interacting with fans than you just singing songs.
In New York, my dad raised me to listen to everything like hip-hop, rock and country music. When I moved to Dallas, I started listening to whatever I wanted to listen to.
Stevie Nicks is dope.
Hip-hop and country aren't too far different: They got shiny suits and the boots and the guitars with their names on it. I was infatuated with that type of stuff.
