For fans who have never heard your music, can you pick three words to describe it?! I think my music is fun, witty, with a sweet sound! What is your favorite part about being an artist? Is it songwriting, performing, recording, something else?) Definitely performing, I love that moment after all the preparations on the stage when it’s just me and my audience and nothing else matters
Can you tell us what being in the recording studio is like for you? For me it’s a creative part where I can express my thought and feeling, and I have a creative freedom. Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing? Sleeping --Haha --dancing, spending time with my son, we also learning snowboarding and for this summer in my plans is to learn surfing Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why? Definitely a queen Beyoncé she is a hard-worker and I admire her talents and JLo there is many stars who come and go in the industry but for them to stay so long in the industry proves everything. Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it? CROWN was about the stigma that is placed on younger women especially if she is beautiful and from another country, so I decided to embrace it. And I wrote HER STORY during the events that took a place in the summer 2020 and it’s about women that were victims of police brutality.
Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year? I am working on my next single called “Potion” and my plans by the end of the to release an EP and also a music video for song “CROWN” with CANSEL. Can you give us a few places where fans can find your music?
