What inspired you to pursue music?
Music is everything to me, for as long as I can remember music is what made me the happiest! Music inspires me because the power, strength, pure enjoyment it brings. It’s a universal language that allows me to connect with people I’ve never met and possibly people who are going through hardship. People can relate and hopefully it’s an escape. I made a promise to myself when I was really young that I would make this crazy dream become a reality.
Can you tell us a little bit about you?
Music has always been a part of my life. But the past two years has been entirely dedicated to developing as an artist – from the songwriting, to my vocals, to music production, to social media, and all the industry knowledge that comes with it. I wake up every day with a schedule and a goal in mind. I finally feel like I’m in a place where people can see me and learn about me. There’s a lot I want people to learn about me but I’d rather they learn about me through my music.
What artists do you look up to right now?
You just released your debut single “Greatest Mistake”! Can you tell us what this song means to you?
“Greatest Mistake” is about a guy I was seeing and I was really crushing on him, until he disappeared! Everyone told me he’d break my heart… but I had to find that out for myself! The greatest mistake was that I learned so much about myself, dating, heartbreak and then I translated those feelings into my music! So in the end, it really was the GREATEST mistake. One of the important messages in this song is that there’s a silver lining in any situation even the ones that break you down. If you look for it I guarantee you’ll find it. From the wise words of one of my musical inspirations, “Everybody makes mistakes everybody has those days!” – Miley Cyrus
What do you hope your supporters will think of your debut single?
I hope my supporters will start to get to know me through my lyrics and from the emotion in my voice. I hope they listen to it over and over again and find a connection to it – simple as that.
Are there any other projects in the works you can tell us about?
I am in the studio working on my next singles and I can’t wait to share them with everyone.
Are you excited to start performing your own original music live for your supporters?
YES! The stage is my home, it’s one of the only places I actually feel comfortable. I’ve been performing all over LA for the past 6 months performing unreleased music. I’ve performed at The Whisky, The Silverlake Lounge, Hotel Café, Bar 20, and TR!P and Playlist Live in Orlando. I have shows coming up at The Mint, and Molly Malone’s too. I performed my new single “Greatest Mistake” for the first time a few weeks ago and it got a great response.
How do you want your relationship to be with your supporters?
I want to have a very open, honest connection with my supporters. It’s why I put so much effort into social media. I want to continue to build on that one-on-one connection.
What social media platform do you use most to stay connected to your supporters?
Instagram by far.
Do you have any last things you want to tell your supporters?
I want to thank all my supporters for believing in me and allowing me to share my music with them. I am truly grateful for their support and I will continue to stay true to who I am and stay connected to them.
