Where are you from and when did you first show an interest in music?

Plant City, FL. I first knew that I wanted to be an entertainer at the age of 7, when I saw my auntie perform in her high school band concert. I went home and wrote my first song that same day.

Is your family supportive in your decision to become an artist?

Yes, very.

How are you working to become a not-so starving artist? Do you make music full-time? What’s paying the bills?

Create for the love of creating but the goal is to always be able to be an artist, all the time. So I strive to supply my lifestyle solely off of music. Yes, I am a full time artist.

What connects you to your peers who make similar types of music? What do you think sets you apart?

No one makes what I make. Vice versa.

Describe your music in 3 words.  Now describe yourself in 3 words.

I would describe my work as refreshing, eclectic, and honest.

I would describe myself as resilient, unafraid, and always a student. I know that’s more than 3 words lol but it’s true.

What are some of the current projects keeping you busy? How many unfinished works do you have in the vault at this very moment?

I’m currently working on my first body of work and all the things surrounding that. I have one or two other things on my mind I would like to see come to fruition. But as of now, this project is most important.

What does “success” look like for you as an artist? Do you have any dream collaborations?

Success for me looks like being able to create and freely do as I please, every day that I wake up.

My goal is to of course win a Grammy, I think that’s all musicians holy grail lol.

I would probably explode if I got to work with Tyler or Frank.

Do you have any habits that help or hinder your progression as an artist? What are some of your biggest challenges?

One of the best things I’ve picked up along the way is to never force anything. If you’re not feeling it, move on. Come back to it.

I always pray before every session. Releasing all fears, doubt, and anxiety from my body in that moment. And then take a shot of some tequila lol.

What do you do when you’re not creating? Do you have a preferred method of escape?

I sleep, a lot lol. But besides that i’m at a park or a beach meditating, journaling and reading.
