I think to be successful at anything you have to put in a hell of a lot of effort. Pick your battles. I picked music, put in a lot of effort, and it's worked.

I'm quite arty. I didn't know whether to become an artist or musician but I realised I could paint with music. All my songs have colours.

Whenever you have an ex, and they're like, 'I hope we can still be friends!' and you weren't friends before you started dating, then what do you go back to, really?

As far as songwriting, my inspirations came from love, life and death, and viewing other people's situations.

The more you write tunes, the better they will become. The more you do gigs, the better you will become. It’s just kind of like the facts of life; the practice makes perfect thing. Keep your fingers crossed, start from the bottom and work your way up.

I think the moment you start trying to please a fan base is when you start going downhill. I'm going to always, always write about what I want, even if it doesn't necessarily cater to most of them.

I do like my hair. It took a while to come around to the fact that it was quite a unique value point.

Paper or razor blade, never give up And just remember just to hold out more A couple years ago I couldn't just control that thought You'd find me buskin' on the street When it was cold outdoors And now I'm sweating on the stage With the sold out tours Writing love songs for the sake of it Never to make a hit

Why didn't kill me it never made me stronger at all.

Everyone knows almost everything about me. I make it very clear that I'm cool with people knowing all my personal life through my songs.

I don't think that there's much that sets me apart from other musicians, but I think there are definitely things that set me apart from other kinds of artists.

Country music is some of the best-written music in the world, so yeah, one day, I would keep my mind open to doing a country record.

I've never really been a confident person, except from a musical standpoint. I had to push myself early on, but it got easier with each gig.

If love what you can't have, then you have to love what you've got

I think that this win [Grammy] in particular was a cool moment for me and the director [Emil Nava], because it was the first award he's ever won.

I kind of like the way that I came up as an artist. I like experimenting.

A sense of humor is an important thing to have because when you get into an argument, one of the best ways to diffuse it is to be funny.

I would say, you can never do enough gigs and you can never do enough songs. Make sure that every opportunity you can, play a show and every opportunity you can, write a song.

I know you'll never love me like you used to.

With music, you could stick someone with a musical instrument or even not a musical instrument, get them to showcase their talent, and within 30 seconds you could tell whether they were good or not, but with acting you have to give them the right part.
