Graham tells us she hopes people fall in love with music like she has.
Graham adds she's not up-to-date with artists at the event because she mostly listens to the classics.
"iHeartRadio... it's super fun to be here. Honestly, there's a lot of music here that I'm familiarizing myself with because I listen to a lot of old school music. I still listen to James Brown and Curtis Mayfield. I like that kind of music, and I struggle with radio music sometimes."
"I feel like, except for maybe The Weeknd or Bruno Mars, there's a bit of a disconnect between the musicianship that I believe existed in the '90s and even the '70s and all that disco & funk, so I'm being educated. I hope that people fall in love with music the way I fell in love with it in a different kind of way."
Graham recognizes she's still an indie artist and faces an uphill battle of promoting her music when major labels continually push their artists to the front. Prince had some advice for her on that.
"Just make good music, just focus on making good music," she says of what she learned from the legend in a separate interview. "It doesn't matter if it gets the most plays on the radio or it gets all the awards in the world. You just have to do your thing, and definitely don't be controlled by anyone. There should be no company that tells you 'we own your masters' or any of that. I'm kind of anti-establishment in the establishment, but I'm hoping that I'm a representation of a lot of independent artists out there that are really trying, that do feel they aren't getting the radio play they deserve because they're not on a major label, but I'm going to try and get in the system and hopefully people like my music and they support it regardless of where my house is."
