Genreless, Affirmative, Motivational
What is your favorite part about being an artist? Is it songwriting, performing, recording, something else?) Tell us why.
Songwriting is by far my favorite part of making music and being an artist. Knowing i can creatively put words together that can make people, dance, cry, laugh, sing along to.. is Powerful.
Can you tell us what being in the recording studio is like for you?
Smokey. Very smokey.
Very concentrated music sessions, don't like to waste time.
Mastermind approach, 3 or more minds creating a masterpiece.
Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing?
Traveling the world. playing video games, reading/ listening to books!
Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why?
The ability to do it independently and be just as big as any major artist. Think the internet is the one to blame for that and I'm here for it! Feel like i was born at the time i was so the internet can give me the leverage needed with the music.
Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it?
Let it Go. This is a song about letting go of things not serving you. i knew this song would be something a lot of ppl could relate too. Everyone has felt trapped in a toxic situation before so thing the song message of letting it go is empowering.
Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year?
I have 18 unreleased songs that i will be dropping through the years as singles with videos.
Also have 3 albums outside of that that I'm working on!
