Q: First of all we want to say welcome to you.
Thank you It’s a pleasure to be interviewed. Thanks for having me!
Q: How did you come into music industry?
I’ve always been into music. As an introvert it’s my escape. I have a hard time expressing myself unless it’s through writing or music so I just took it way more seriously when my mom passed because I needed that release and music just wouldn’t go away no matter how hard I tried to ignore it. That’s how you know it’s meant to be. It won’t leave your conscience.
Q: Who was your inspiration for music?
Old school was Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, I loved their voices and how unique their personality was at the time. I wanted my voice to sound just like that, but then later down the line I realized I didn’t have a similar voice to anyone. At first I hated it, then I realized you can’t be unique and stand out if you’re like everyone else, so I embraced it. I so wanted to fit in… it wasn’t until I started accepting my individuality that things took off.
Q: What is the name of your debut song?
My new single is UNDER THE INFLUENCE, and this song was done at a very dark time in my life. I was going through so much with love and giving my heart and not getting anything in return and I gave up.. I’m no longer in that state now because I learned to love myself first and then someone would come along eventually but I kept this going because there is a lot of people going through these same emotions. Music is meant to carry you through your emotions. So it’s there to remind others their not alone with how they feel at the moment.
Q: Say something about your musical journey?
Finding myself. I’m still finding myself now. This journey is like me never really knowing who I am. Every year I feel I evolve.. I move to a new horizon a new space, a new way of being or thinking, a deeper understanding of myself. And so that’s why a lot of people feel I’ve chnaged but i didn’t change, I come into my new self. Sometimes people need to accept that you’ll constantly evolve and stick around for it. Just because you change doesn’t mean you leave people behind. You want them to grow with you. But everyone doesn’t have that mindset.
Q: Who helped you most in your journey?
My mom. I was so lost when she passed. For 3 years I didn’t know what to do… I just hid and went into my own world. I had to remember her words to keep going. She my inner voice now until someone comes along to change that.
Q: Who gave you pieces of advice?
Well I research a lot. I’m always reading and on the internet researching. Any topic from a female point or a males point I’m digging up to see how both sides feel… I never stop learning, I’m hungry to learn. That’s where my true advice comes from.
Q: What do you do now a days?
Make music lol… videos, write, now wanting to travel a lot. I’m in my head most of the times. I really want to say a lot of things but I have a hard time expressing when I need something or someone so I write lol. I wish people would ask me to write what I feel for them lol… they would get a whole lot more emotions lol.
Q: Let us know something about your future projects?
I don’t like to give away what I have planned. They say if you put the milk before the cow nothing gets done.. but I’ll say it’s a lot of what the fans have been asking for.
Q: What is your message to your fans?
Thanks for loving me. I feel I’m not worthy at times. I’m just an average girl being herself and they see so much more in me. They are amazing towards me in times when I doubt myself. I’m just happy they love me.
Q: Any message for new artist?
Don’t give up. This is coming from someone that has given up a million times, wanted to die even. The lessons are there for a reason. Always fight through it. Take a break away if you need to, but no matter what, don’t give up.
