Songwriter’s Monthly:
What was theinspiration for your brand new single, “Finger On The Trigger?” 
“Finger On The Trigger” wasinspired by coming out of a fightingbattle where things just went wrong formany years. I could not get control of my thoughts and some negativefeelings attached to them and itseemed to lead to one disaster afteranother . . . until I changed mymindset. Once I did, so many wonderfulthings began falling into place. It feltthat whatever I thought, whatever Itried to imagine could become real, soit was time to put my “Finger on theTrigger” and shoot for moving forwardinstead of backward. The expression “Finger on the Trigger” can beassociated with something “dark andnegative,” but I turned it around andmade it into something positive. Iwanted to create this song out of myown experiences to help others createpositive change and sparks in theirlives, especially in a time that seems sodark as this one is right now.
There is a moment in “Finger OnThe Trigger” when along with A-listcelebrities, making headlines and otherthings that go hand-in-hand with thefabulous life, you mention stage fright.Did you ever experience stage fright?
Yes, I did experience stage fright,unknowingly. The way I imagined stagefright was always like your voicestopped working — I’ve seen that inmany nightmares — but it was not at
all like that. It was forgetting my lyricsto a song that I had sung 1000 times! Ihad an open air gig at a huge theatre inthe middle of Hollywood Boulevardduring the day — the gig had been setup by my manager and I had notperformed for at least a year and it hadcome way too quickly. I totally forgotmy lyrics and went into space, it wasalmost like a verse-long blackout. Thesecond verse of one of my songs justwas gone! Luckily, I was blessed tohave had amazing backing singers whocaught it and filled right in. Still, it is amoment that I will never forget. Ialways laugh when telling that story.Stage fright is part of what you
tofeel as an artist to know you are on theright track. Each fan deserves the bestperformance and 1000% of you. If youdo not connect with each fan in youraudience and you do not experiencestage fright, it becomes mechanical — Ican not stand mechanical procedures.Even if there are fans who are not likingwhat you are doing, you are getting anemotion or reaction out of them and
is what we work for!
There is a great line in “Finger OnThe Trigger” that rings so true. Itstates: “anything is possible when yourcup is running full.” What does that linemean to you?
“Anything is possible when your cupis running full” has a double-sidedmeaning — as a lot of my songs do. Tome, it means that there are tons of
