Question 1: What got you into making music?
Growing up a young child, I would sing everywhere all the time. The problem I had have I never had the vocal ability to feel okay to share my voice really. I always felt music. Very immensely throughout every bone in my body. When a good song was playing, I felt like the most confident, invincible person in the world.
I grew up as a competitive figure skater. At 17, I was in a serious accident and was forced to give it up. I took a year off and worked full time thinking I would travel to AUS and explore. That following summer (a few months before my planned AUS trip) I decided to go to my first music festival. That's where my life would change forever. For once in my life, I felt whole. I'm not sure how but it was the energy there from the artists, the people. I can't explain it in words, but I knew I wanted to provide that feeling for the rest of my life... When I got home, I quit my full-time job, broke up w my bf, bought my equipment with the money I had saved for AUS, and decided to dedicate my life to this.
Question 2: What people intrigue you or inspire you to pursue music?
I draw a lot of inspiration from RnB. Believe it or not, it makes me feel the most melancholy and I write my best work in that feeling. People like Frank Ocean, Alon Mor, Majid Jordan, Baauer, RL Grime, The Internet, Skrillex, LSDXOXO, TNGHT, Boys Noize, Tyler The Creator, Corbin, Sonder, Tupac, Andre 3000, Travis Scott, Future, Led Zepplin, Swizzy Mack, Josh Pan, X&G.
Question 3: How would you define your style of music?
I don't really know how to describe my music when people ask, and I find they have a hard time explaining it too, but most of my original music is dark, heavy, full of feeling and pure energy from what I was feeling at that moment of creating.
Question 4: What influences your style of work?
Love, pain, happiness, people, nature, and life in general.
Question 5: What is your favorite track that you have produced so far?
One that is out would be "Suffocate." Unreleased would be "SHE"...which will be coming out soon xxx:)
Question 6: Any goals or plans in mind for you as an artist in the future? Anyone who you would love to work with?
Some amazing things are brewing at this very moment. I'm feeling extremely grateful for the people who are here with me on this journey and feel my vision. I'd love to work with any of those artists mentioned above. xx
