"I picked up a guitar when I was 14, went online, and basically taught myself how to play. I really like storytelling, so once I learned to play, I started writing my own songs. 'Hey Society' is probably my favorite. I wrote it during a time when I wasn't dating anybody, I'd just cut off my hair, people were giving me a hard time about it, and I felt like an outcast. I think a lot of teenage girls can relate to that feeling. It's not good, but we do tend to spend a lot of time worrying about what other people think of us, worrying about guys, worrying about fitting in. The message of the song is to be independent and to be yourself."
