What is a mantra you live by?

"Everything happens for a reason."

img

How did your creative journey begin?

"I tried out for my school talent show in 2nd grade and sang If We Were A Movie by Hannah Montana. I had always been around music due to my dad who plays the drums. I have been able to travel, meet other artists, and work with people I have dreamed about for years. It's crazy to think that little girl blaring Hannah Montana in her room years ago is able to do all of that."

What are you currently working on?

"So right before COVID-19 hit I was working on my first music video for my second single Bad Love. I have been writing a-lot during quarantine and trying to focus on honing my craft."

img

What inspires you?

"I love the anxiety before a performance, I have mastered the craft of honing that into positive energy rather than negative. It is this feeling that is indescribable and unless you have felt it you can't explain it. But what inspires me is thinking about how my music can help people. Music helps me explain how I feel without even having to open my mouth."

img

What makes the perfect day for you?

"My perfect day at work would be writing a song that makes me want to release it as soon as possible. The feeling that my writing is getting stronger and my melodies are catchy. I love when the person I am working with is excited about the project as well."

img

What is the most fulfilling thing about being a creative?

"The most fulfilling thing would be when you have people vibing to your song or your set. After the show they come up and just tell you how they related to the song. That is the best feeling in the world."

img

What is the hardest part about being a creative?

"I deal with mental health such as BPD/Anxiety/OCD and it is a lot to deal with. But I read self help books, do yoga, go to therapy, make music, and surround myself with people who understand me. You have to do things that make you happy and try to snap yourself back into reality."

img

What is the best piece of advice you can give?

"The best piece of advice I would give is you can't please everyone so do what makes you happy. It's easier said than done but once you stop caring you are free. You stop trying to compare yourself to others. I feel like as women we are held to such high standards and it's exhausting. So just do what makes you happy and live your way the way you want to live it."

img

Where do you want to be in 5 years?

"I would love to be on a world tour and have won a Grammy for my music. I want to be at the point in my career where I have fans and I am able to give advice I have learned over the years. I had to grow up fast and I would love to help people with things that have gone through."
