Thank you for this interview today. What have you been up to lately?
After the release of my debut album, “COLLUSION,” I have been letting the work sit and settle and just really reach the audience and attract those who need it most. I have been cooking up some ideas and I want to further the experience of this album by creating some more visual content that I hope to release within the year or into early next year. I also have been meeting with a few new collaborators and working to create some new music as well because I’m just in a go mode of constantly creating.
One thing most people would be surprised to learn about you!
I think people know I dance or just do it as the gig of being a pop artist, but dancing is one of my biggest passions. Dancing to me is a gateway to happiness. I feel so free when I’m dancing and my body just feels in tune with the universe and the music I’m listening to. And I’ve never taken a dance class, I’m completely self taught. I actually choreographed for my own video, “Don’t fall in love in LA,” it was one of my proudest moments as a creator.
Any hidden talents to share?
I am secretly a designer and sketch artist. I have always been into drawing, sketching, and making art. It really helps my mental health and clear my mind. I love to keep myself busy with anything creative cause it is my best medicine. If I am not making music I am sketching and drawing something, whether it be costumes, stage designs, cover ideas, etc.
First concert you ever attended?
Being the cheesy little kid I was, it was most likely a Hannah Montana show, but I think my first legit concert was seeing my icon Lady Gaga live on the artRAVE tour back in 2014. One of the best shows of my life.
Who is an artist we would be surprised that you listen to?
I think a lot of people expect me to be a top 40 fan, and as much as I love my strong talented women of pop music, I adore old Jazz music and the classics. I listen to a lot of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Edith Piaf. Listening to jazz and singing jazz is such an escape, and I truly love the meaning and the style of music curated from the times when these songs were written.
