Q

what has to happen to put you in the mood to write a song?


The Parkers responded on 08/22/2013
A

I'm going to answer this as simply as I can: anything.

Q

which of the songs that you have written means the most to you?


The Parkers responded on 08/22/2013
A

That's a tough one; it changes a lot only because I tend to be most passionate about whatever song I have just written or I am in the process of writing. Whatever emotions I'm feeling at a certain time are reflected in the music written then.

Q

What's your favorite song?


The Parkers responded on 08/11/2013
A

Terrapin Station by The Grateful Dead

Q

Who's your favorite artist or band?


The Parkers responded on 08/11/2013
A

I have different favorites within different genres, but my all time favorite is probably a tie between Mac Miller and CSNY.

Q

Well math is a sport but that's not what I meant to ask. What's your favorite equation then?


The Parkers responded on 07/29/2013
A

My favorite equation isn't quite complicated but the beauty in the pattern never ceases to astound me:
(1+2+3+...+n)^2 = (1^3+2^3+3^3+...+n^3)

Another favorite is the formula to calculate the sum of a finite arithmetic series:
[n(a(1)+a(n))]/2
Where n is the number of terms, a(1) is the first term of the series, and a(n) is the last term of the series.
The formula itself amazes me less than the story I read in my textbook in which this formula was used by a young math student, Carl Friedrich Gauss, when his teacher punished him by putting him in a corner and telling him to add all of the integers from 1 to 100. In a matter of seconds (and without a developed formula at the time), Gauss responded with 5050. The teacher was dumbfounded, and probably had to add the integers up to 100 just to check his work.

Q

What inspires you?


The Parkers responded on 07/29/2013
A

Dedication. I am inspired by people who are passionate about everything they do -- people who are driven to fulfill their goals and disregard any hate and judgement that may come their way.

Q

Do you have any unique talents besides in music?


The Parkers responded on 07/29/2013
A

I'm the girl that has to be doing a million things at once. Some things that have stayed consistent as far as my passions and talents include writing, yoga, and nutritional research.

Q

Which song of yours are you most proud of?


The Parkers responded on 07/29/2013
A

They're all like my babies! I could never choose a favorite because I love them all!
