Q: How did you come into music industry?
A: Well I had always been fairly musical when I was little. I would do a bunch of the talent shows growing up and I even went on to take voice lessons in fifth grade. I was very active when it came to writing poetry and lyrics were my first love.
It wasn’t until I reached sixth grade that my birth mom had given me my first guitar. I went online and taught myself your typical basic chords. Within hours I had written my first song and I knew that music was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life
Q: Who was your inspiration for music?
A: I love John Mayer. I think he’s so talented when it comes to writing his lyrics. He really has a way of taking you into another world with him and you see things through his eyes. And say what you will, I absolutely love Taylor Swift. She’s an extremely talented songwriter and I too am familiar with break up songs so she’s my sister haha. She’s a very good story teller and that’s something I try my best to do as well.
Q: What is the name of your debut song?
A: Same Routine and it’s all about quarantine. Every day I would wake up and I’d go outside and sit in the same chair and drink my tea and do absolutely nothing. My sleep schedule was completely turned around and I was just bored out of my mind.
It’s your lofi/bedroom pop genre, so it definitely has that grittiness to it. I’m calling it my soft launch, because I went with that under produced route to really give it that “I wrote this at home” vibe that flows with the story. It’s just a really funny and relatable song. The lyrics should give you a good chuckle.
And fun fact, the chair that I’m sitting on in the cover art, is the actual chair that the song was written in and was sung about in the song ha ha.
And if that was confusing, listen to the song and look at the photo and then you’ll understand ;p
Q: Say something about your musical journey?
A: I’ve had a lot of ups and downs with my love for music over the years. Throughout junior high and high school, I was extremely active with playing my guitar and writing music, and when I went away to college I fell into some pretty low spots . I’m pretty open about my past addiction, and I have recently celebrated 4 1/2 years clean. But during that time, I had lost all desire and passion for music. It hasn’t been until a couple years ago that I re-fell in love and wanted to share my experiences with others. I love writing and that’s really my goal with breaking into the industry. I write everything myself
Q: Who helped you most in your journey?
A: There’s a couple people that stand out for different reasons.
The first is my grandparents. Throughout the years they have given me some financial help and I have been able to use that towards recording and releasing my music. I feel so blessed to have them in my life
My closest friends have been there for me during all the heartbreaks and tears. They always have my back and are extremely uplifting. They listen to all my songs once recorded and help to give me a consumer perspective.
Q: Who gave you pieces of advice?
A: My sound engineer and friend Henry Chadwick. He is also a fellow musician and extremely talented. He’s held my hand through the whole process from recording me, to finding a publisher, to helping me find a graphic artist to make animation videos. I really couldn’t have done any of this without him
Q: Let us know something about your future projects.
A: Awesome things will be happening all of next year. Starting in January, every 3 to 4 weeks I will be releasing a new song. All of which are different genres. You’ll have another Bedroom Pop song, Alternative Pop, R&B, Dance Pop and Dark Pop.
In September is the plan to release the EP, which will be 5 to 6 songs.
I’m really looking forward to the EP because it’s going to give you all the Melanie Martinez and Billie Eilish vibes. Definitely more in the spooky end of things.
Q: Any message for new artist?
A: Trying to figure all of this recording and releasing stuff out on your own can be extremely taxing. Try to utilize as many resources as you can. Take a step back and go “this artist has what I’m looking for, how do I get this too?” It’s all in the small details. Like figuring out how to get your lyrics synced in Spotify and Instagram stories. I wouldn’t have even known to do that unless I had taken a look and saw that’s what other artists had done. Use your friends! Artist supporting artist
Q: What is your message to your fans?
A: I could use this question to make it all about my music, but I think with everything that people are going through, I’d like to take this section focus on mental health.
I want my fans to know that they don’t have to be alone even though we need to be physically distant. There are many resources out there to get the mental health help that you need. Depression can be deadly if not taken seriously. And if you’re not going through depression, check in on your loved ones. You never know what somebody might be going through and we really need to keep each other as close as we can.
