This spring, Rozzi is on tour supporting Australian singer-songwriter Betty Who for ten shows which are bound to be a fun time! This past November, Rozzi released her debut album, "Bad Together." Rozzi's music is raw, personal, unique and really pulls on your emotions in the best way. Don't even get me started on her incredible songwriting.

A few songs that stood out to me on my first listen were "Never Over You," "Joshua Tree," and "Visions." Not only can you vibe to all three tracks, but the lyrics are absolutely beautiful and her vocals have a soulful and honest sound to them that you can't help but love.

Not only do I recommend that you give Rozzi's music a listen, but if you have the chance definitely go see her perform live. Unfortunately, she is already about halfway through her shows supporting Betty Who, but she does have a few other shows announced on her tour schedule that you might be able to catch. You can check if Rozzi is coming to a city near you here.

I was lucky enough to be able to ask Rozzi a few questions regarding her debut album, supporting Betty Who on tour, musical influences and even a few of her favorite things.

1. You are touring with Betty Who this spring. What are you looking forward to on this tour?

"We played a sold-out show at The Fillmore last night which meant I got to sleep at my parents' house in San Francisco. I'm most excited to meet Betty's fans and to be a Betty fan — watching her set every night is a dream for me."

2. Your debut album, "Bad Together," was released this past November. How does it feel to have that out in the world?

"I really needed to release that album personally — I needed to close that chapter of my life by setting the songs free and move on to the next. And, before I put it out, I didn't really have a body of work in the world that accurately represented me. So it feels so good to have something in the universe that I'm really proud of. Now I just have to put my new music out..."

3. What did the writing process for your album look like?

"I always write lyrics first — I basically write poems that I eventually turn to songs. For me, the purpose of the song is to express a feeling or tell a story so if I don't have a lyric or at least a lyrical idea, it's hard for me to hear melodies. I learned that about myself while writing this album. The songs that stood the test of time were the ones that had very personal lyrics and were full of hardcore honesty."

4. What is your favorite song to play live and why?

"This changes all the time. Sometimes it feels cathartic to sing the super sad ones and sometimes I don't like returning to those emotions. Lately, my fave has been 'Lose Us' because it's such a singer-song. It's a duet that I wrote and sang with the stupidly good singer Scott Hoying and I love singing his runs on tour — it's like a masterclass for me."

5. If you were to put together a mixtape right now to play in your tour bus/van, what are three songs that would definitely be on it?

"Hard Place" by H.E.R.

"Mixer" by Amber Mark

Kacey Musgrave's cover of "Neon Moon" by Brooks & Dunn

6. Which song of yours would you choose to play to somebody who has never heard any of your music before?

"I think "Bad Together' because it's so raw and straight forward. It's just my voice and a piano so there's no confusion on who I am."

7. Which music artists do you look up to? Who has influenced you and your music over the years?

"My favorite voices are Lauryn Hill and Aretha Franklin. I'd die for a voice as rich with emotion as theirs. I love how both Stevie Nicks and Christie McVey write songs. And I'm constantly inspired by newer artists like Nao, Maggie Rogers and Kacey Musgraves."

8. What are 3 of your favorite things/essentials?

"When I'm on tour I need good headphones for long drives, my new merch sweatshirts because they're mad cute, and my Fitbit because I live for STEPS."

18 Times Kate Middleton Was Actually All Of Us In College, Beside The Princess Thing

Every girl has to go through her clueless college stage before she reaches Duchess status.
26952
views

Kate Middleton is basically a household name by now, and how could this not be the case when she has the gorgeous hair, kind smile, and incredible fashion sense. With her constantly in the spotlight looking so put together, we sometimes forget that the Duchess was actually all of us in college!

Here are 18 times that Kate proved she was just like all of us.

1. Going all out in the name of school spirit

There is nothing like breaking out the war paint and screaming for your home team. Like Kate, we all love to get a little messy and make some memories with our friends.

2. Hanging out with the roomies

Some people may not get lucky in this area but for those who are best friends with their roommates, they understand the love. It's a dream come true for everyone who has always wanted to live with their best friends. It's like a sleepover that never ends.

3. Dressing up cute on the first day of school...

You got to make a good first impression on your way to school. Whether it's during your 7 A.M or 4 P.M., it's always best to dress to impress.

4. ...and wearing yoga pants for the rest of the year

And this goes all the way until the last week of school when you don't bother getting out of bed to wear pants at all.

5. Going grocery shopping and throwing in cookies, ice-cream, and every type of Pringles because your mom isn't there to say no

You'll probably regret that in a few months when the Freshman Fifteen kicks in.

6. Walking for miles from your car to your dorm carrying groceries

We can't park by the apartment for a solid five minutes to carry our groceries up to the kitchen or we will risk a ticket, but we can walk a few miles carrying food that gets heavier, and heavier, and heavier with every step.

7. Going out for a night on the town on a Friday night

Dancing, laughter, and fun? Everyone in college has been to a party or two. It's a classic part of the college experience. Sometimes you just need a distraction from all the essays and tests.

8. Being so late to class you threw on whatever your hands grabbed next

We've all been there. Our alarm doesn't go off, we press snooze a few too many times, or forget to even set an alarm and next thing you know we are running around the dorm room like Taz from Looney Toons. You throw on whatever, then run to class.

Unfortunately 9/10 times our outfits don't turn out. Although, Kate can certainly pull off this look, no matter how mismatched.

9. Pretending your walking to the same building as the cute boy you met so you have the excuse to keep talking to him

I am very guilty of doing this. Although I missed my class, at least I got to talk to the really cute boy who has class at 9:45 in the STEM building. It was worth it.

10. Sitting on the floor or standing because you're a poor college student who can't afford chairs or tables

Eating on the floor? Always. Being a college kid is tough and sometimes you have to sacrifice some things to obtain the others. Such as choosing chocolate milk and Halo Top over vegetables and hair conditioner.

Judging by Kate's beautiful locks, she chose the conditioner.

Probably the vegetables too.

We should just all follow her example.

11. Going on cute date with the boy you followed to class-turned-boyfriend

Now my short-lived romance may not have extended farther than us talking and walking to his class, but Kate and William obviously had a better ending. Nevertheless, college is the place to grow and date and possibly find the one.

12. Keeping your hair long and growing because you can't afford to get it cut

Don't trust your roommate. No matter how many times she begs you to let her cut it. Don't.

13. Turning 21 and getting dressed up and going out with your best friends

While this one probably doesn't apply to Kate, since you can drink at age 18 in most countries, all my people in the United States know the sweet freedom of turning 21. It's an iconic time in a students life and marks a huge milestone as well.

14. Passing out flyers for some type of movement or protest

Everyone wants to be a part of something bigger - which is why college is the time to stand up for what you believe in. May that be RedforEd, Planned Parenthood, anti-Abortion, Trump, the Wall, pizza bagels, it's all an exercise of the first amendment.

15. Ranting to your friends about the professor that just "doesn't understand you"

You know your thinking about that professor right now as you read this. And you know that that's your reaction whenever they give you a bad grade or say something you disagree with at the tiniest degree.

16. Getting glammed-up for those senior photos

Pick out your best outfit and make sure it's a good hair day because everyone will be viewing these photos forever... and in Kate's place that is more than true. Luckily she looks as gorgeous as ever. Does she ever have a bad hair day?

17. Walking out of your last class knowing you'll never have to write a single paper again

And purposefully not thinking about how you will be going into the real world in less than a few days.

18. When you've graduated and realized you have no idea what you're going to do with your life

Maybe a prince will be right around the corner to sweep you off your feet so you won't have to figure your life out.
