What inspired you to pursue music?
I’ve always loved singing since I was a kid. Anything that had to do with entertaining, I loved. I love how music is the universal language and that no matter where you are from, what language you speak, it makes you feel something.
Did you always want to be a singer?
Yes. I always wanted to be a pop star. Growing up I would watch MTV, back when they used to play music videos (they need to get back to that, by the way). My favorite videos to watch were of artists who would dance and sing at the same time. I grew up dancing as well, so I’d love to be able to combine the two.
How would you describe yourself in 5 words?
Girly, tomboy, laidback, kind and adventurous.
How would you describe your musical style?
I’d say it’s edgy pop.
What artists do you look up to right now?
I really like how unique Billie Eilish’s sound is and I like Camilla Cabello’s new self-titled album a lot. She is killing it.
Can we expect any new music soon?
Yes, you can expect another single pretty soon and then the EP in the next few months.
What is the meaning behind your new single, “California Daze”?
The song is about young love and how you can get lost in the honeymoon phase at the beginning of a relationship, and be unable to see where the relationship is actually going.
Are there any other projects in the works you can tell us about?
I’m going to be shooting a music video for “California Daze” pretty soon which I can’t wait to put out! It’s going to be really cool and maybe not what you’ll expect.
Have you ever been star struck by someone? If so when, where, and who was it?
I haven’t been star struck by anyone yet…but if I was to see someone super famous, I probably would.
How do you want your relationship to be with your fans?
I want to be able to be close to my fans. I want to be an open book as much as possible and be able to share my journey with them.
Does your fanbase have a name?
Not yet… I need to brainstorm, but I’d rather have my fans pick it out!
What was the craziest fan encounter you have had?
I was at Urth Café in L.A. for lunch with a friend and this guy came up to me and said hi and that he came there to see me because he saw I was there from my Snapchat. That was the first time someone had ever recognized me and I didn’t think anyone knew who I was, so it was really weird but cool!
What social media platform do you use most to stay connected to your fans?
Instagram and Twitter are the best!
How do you spend most of your free time?
If I’m not in the studio I like to hang out with my friends and go on hiking dates or try new lunch spots.
What’s the best thing that’s come out of this career so far?
Definitely the people. I’ve made some really cool relationships and friendships.
What’s your biggest struggle in this career so far?
I think the biggest struggle has been figuring out the sound that I want. It’s been an exciting journey, yet sometimes stressful, but I am super confident in this EP and I’m really proud of it. I can’t wait to share it with you guys.
What goals have you set out for yourself in your career?
I’d love to have a world tour one day, be able to play at famous venues like Madison Square Garden, and to see that my music is making people happy in some way.
How has this whole music career experience been?
It’s been a journey of ups and downs and self-growth, but I wouldn’t change anything. I’m ready for this next step and excited to share my new music with everyone.
Do you have any advice for aspiring music artists?
Stay true to yourself, your music and what you believe. Don’t change yourself because someone tells you different.
Do you have any last things you went to tell your fans?
The comments I see from you guys on my Instagram, YouTube and Twitter about liking my new single puts the biggest smile on my face! I couldn’t do this without you guys so thank you so much for listening!
