Q: First of all we want to say welcome to you.
A: Thank you so much for having me it’s a pleasure!
Q: How did you come into music industry?
A: I used to write poetry in high school and my early 20’s. I even mastered the Haiku! It was when I was in choir in Long Beach about 6 years ago that I realized I want to write and sing as a solo artist. I never wanted or desired to be a singer before, but I realized I enjoyed it alot. I have a good ear so I can pick up beats and rhyming comes easy. I had to learn song structure and pitch which I am still learning as I write. I can write a song, poem or rap for just about anything.
Q: Who was your inspiration for music?
A: When I was growing up all we listened to was old school music. I don’t know if you’re familiar with WHUR Howard University Radio but they play “quiet storm” music at night, and some of it is older music that I grew up with and contemporary soul music. I love Phyllis Hyman. She’s was a Cancer like I am, so I understand the emotion she puts into her music. I love Leelah James, and I have followed Maysa throughout her career with Incognito.
