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!!
Fun, engaging, powerful
What is your favorite part about being an artist? Is it songwriting, performing, recording, something else?) Tell us why.
My favorite part about being an artist is performing. I really enjoy the whole process of writing the song, and recording, but performing outshines them all. Being on stage is my favorite feeling in the world, it’s who I am.
Can you tell us what being in the recording studio is like for you?
Being in the recording studio is always such a blast. We get to experiment with new ideas and come up with general messages/ meanings for the songs. I always love being able to experiment with the way that I sing my songs.
Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing?
When I’m not doing music, I love arts and crafts and baking. I like to draw and do arts and crafts. I enjoy all activities that have to do with art. I also love baking cookies and brownies, or other family recipes!
Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why?
I admire Taylor Swift. I absolutely love all of her songs. They are so catchy, and she has such a powerful voice. She started singing and songwriting at a young age, and I can relate to that.
Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it?
“Better in time” is an emotional ballad that I love. It’s about how life isn’t always easy, with school, my job, friends, and family, there’s always a lot to do. I have to always trust myself and my work and know that things will get better in time.
Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year?
I am working on a few new songs which will be released this year! My newest one will be released on August 19th! I am also in the process of getting ready for a new feature film which is exciting!
