Before kicking off her tour behind her latest album, Elements, Kina Grannis made her way to the AllMusic studios to perform a solo acoustic version of her song "Oh Father." In addition to singing and playing her folk-pop nugget, she also gave us some insight about how she finds meaning in songs and why ambitions are meant to be pursued. Think of it as a teaser for her U.S. tour, which kicks off tonight in North Carolina.
