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!!
soulful, emotional, and genuine
What is your favorite part about being an artist? Is it songwriting, performing, recording, something else?) Tell us why.
Arranging and recording are my favorite parts of being an artist. I love sitting down at my keyboard and thinking of different harmonies and melodies to record.
Can you tell us what being in the recording studio is like for you?
I'm in my studio all the time because if I'm not recording a song, I'm recording a voice-over. Sometimes I get super creative, and other times I'm on autopilot.
Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing?
I love cooking, gardening, and reading science fiction series like "Dune" and "Shadow and Bone."
Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why?
There are so many people in the music industry that I admire. One person, in particular, is Emily King. She is an incredible artist. She is consistent and creates fun and emotional pieces of work. Emily King is one of the artists that has inspired me to be a better musician.
Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it?
"Fade Away" is my recent single, and it's very personal. "Fade Away" reflects my mental state as I was going through a severe state of depression. I had a lot of self-destructive thoughts, and it made me feel like I was losing my mind. The song was a cry for help. I personally lost two friends in the last two years, I became overwhelmed with everyday life, and I felt like I didn't have a purpose. Writing this song was a challenge, but it helped me work through my depression. These last two years have been challenging for so many people, and I hope my music helps someone feel like they're not alone.
Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year?
At the moment, I am working on three songs. Hopeful within a few months, I'll have them ready for release.
