He held both my hands and said hearing me live was an experience he'll never forget. He told me that while he loved my recordings, my live acoustic performance was so personal and showcased my talents. I had another man from Germany tell me that ‘many artists need synthesizers to sound good at least a bit - you wouldn't need them at all!’. These are just two examples from my 'JUMP Tour' last year. I took this to heart, and I knew I had to create a version like this. After all, some of my favorite artists' recordings are acoustic or live now that I think about it: Gavin DeGraw, Sia, Brett Young, Patty Griffin, Sara Bareilles, Ed Sheeran."
