"There is nothing that I love more than creating music, and It has become part of my mission to help make this world a better place, to help anyone out there one way or another, and make long-lasting connections through my music. Everything that I create I have a strong connection with and reflects my emotions and state of mind at the time that I wrote and produced the song. I hope you all stay tuned for what’s to come."
For fans who have never heard your music, can you pick three words to describe it?! If three words just aren't enough then tell us more!!
Uplifting, Inspirational and Emotional. I try to focus more on the loving side of things, how beautiful this life experience is etc. A mix of Pop and Dance music is my go to favorite genre to write, I believe there are more high vibes in the frequency of those sounds that I just love and I want to make people feel that through my music.
What is your favorite part about being an artist? Is it songwriting, performing, recording, something else?) Tell us why.
My favorite part about it has to be that I get to connect with like-minded individuals who like the same music that I make. There is nothing better than knowing that you are helping people around the world to heal in such a special way. It's a very high vibrotional state of mind you get put into that is just incredible. It is my soul's purpose and my mission to assist at a time like this, a time of so much chaos everywhere is hard to keep up. If I can make a difference in 1 person, then i know I am doing my part.
Can you tell us what being in the recording studio is like for you?
It feels like home. Not only because I literally have a home studio where I record all of my music but is the fact I get to be my authentic self in that little room. I love being surrounded by all of my equipment and my gear etc. It's the place you will find me 80% of the time.
Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing?
I recently discovered that I enjoy the beach more than I used to, so I find myself going there with my partner more often. And when I'm not at the beach, I'm probably just home relaxing, enjoying time off or gardening. I have a lot of orchids hanging around my backyard that I really enjoy taking care of the, seeing them bloom, grow etc.
Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why?
Hands down The Weeknd. I love his music since Starboy album and what he is doing whit his most recent one After Hours I think it's so awesome. I love the 80's sound and he is bringing it back with well crafted synths and drums produced by the genius Max Martin.
Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it?
I have a few, but I would have to go with my newest single "This Life" It is based on a personal experience and it's about having that deep undeniable attraction and connection with that special someone. You probably had a sense of knowing that person from somewhere but is the first time you two have met. You recognise that person at a soul level, and it feels like you must have known them in a past life. It's my most emotional song because I've never experienced anything like this before, it's very magical.
Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year?
I am currently working on new songs and proyects almost everyday now. I am riding on that big wave of inspiration so I want to make sure I put everything in writing. I might take a few days off here and there but regardless, I am constantly working no matter what.
