Tell us how you got to where you are now

I grew up doing choir and theatre, in addition to learning the piano. I’ve always had the desire to further express myself, which is why I got into songwriting and producing. I took a songwriting class in college which taught me the basic structures of a song. I was also in an acapella group which really helped me gain an understanding of all of the different components/sounds that go into a song.

What is the song you are the most proud of? 

It is actually very hard for me to pick a favorite because I am tied to them all. At the moment, my favorite is “Deep End” which came out last year. It just reminds me of summertime and it’s a chill song to listen to on the beach.

Who are your all time musical icons?

I am the biggest Ariana Grande fan. She’s got a killer voice and love that she’s able to show that off in more pop tracks. I am also a huge fan of Bruno Mars who’s a great performer and has the whole package.

What are some things to do to keep yourself inspired?

Conversations with people always keep me inspired. Even when I don’t have much to share, I love hearing other people’s stories and experiences and gaining inspiration from that.

Who are you binge listening to these days?

Slayyyter and Britney

Favorite movie or TV show?

I only ever watch The Real Housewives franchises. I’m a sucker for reality tv.

Tell us about your ‘Feedback’ and how it came about

I really wanted to be more sonically experimental with “Feedback” and bring in elements of hyperpop music that I personally enjoy listening to. In the past, my songs have always had a more R&B feel to it which I also love, but wanted to try a bit of a different style with “Feedback”. From experimenting with different sounds to even my style of singing, I enjoyed getting to be creating something I haven’t done before.

Any plans for the future?

I plan on releasing an EP later this year and hopefully will get to play some of these songs live!

Who inspires your style and aesthetics?

I admire guys who aren’t afraid to take risks and don’t limit their style to a “gender”. I love Bad Bunny’s style as well as Lil Nas X. I’m also inspired by Kpop.

What is the achievement or moment in your career you are the most proud of and why?

It’s hard to pick one. Everything I put out I’m extremely proud of because I’m producing it all on my own. I am in complete creative control and it’s always rewarding having people respond to it.

What do you think is the best way to make it as an artist nowadays?

Be yourself. I think people are craving authenticity in their artists and no longer subscribe to a manufactured, branded “artist”.

How would you make the current music industry a better place for artists?

I think that the pandemic has proved that artists can continue to put out content all from the space of their own home. There are musicians all over the country. You don’t have to be in LA or NYC to create and put out music! Especially with the easy access to producers and other musicians through the internet. I would love to see more artists from different parts of the country put out music and be recognized.
