Please introduce yourself to our readers.

With multiple releases out on all streaming platforms, I am constantly creating tuneful R&B sounds that will catch your attention through its addiction to beautiful melodies and lyrics. You’ll be taken on a journey through the clever lyrics backed up with ear-catching productions by my producer Julien Lopes (Ramzoid). I will soon be releasing another single in the next month with an addition of a brand new music video that captures the sound, mood and feel of my upcoming release.

How do you describe your music?

I would describe my music as moody, sensual and mesmerizing.

How did you get into making music?

I’ve been singing my whole life in choir, musical theatre, etc., and just around four years ago, I decided to dive into writing my own songs, and it soon became an easy flow for me to be creative with different lyrics and melodic choices.

What was the best advice someone gave you when you started as a musician?

The best advice that I received when I was starting my music career that I still remind myself to this day is to always be true to myself when it comes to performing, songwriting etc., and to not care about what others think about me during the process.

What or who inspires you as a musician?

Many amazing artists such as SZA, Ariana Grande, Beyonce, Kali Uchis, and Victoria Monet all inspire me heavily when it comes to their sound, groove and melodic approaches to songwriting.

What are you working on musically right now?

I have a song and music video that I will soon release on all streaming platforms.

Do you have an album in the works?

During these past couple of months, I’ve been working and writing new music that will potentially become an EP or album release this year.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

In five years, I see myself on bigger festival stages across North America with plenty more releases out. I want to see my fan base grow and catch more listeners who vibe with my music.

What advice do you have for other aspiring musicians?

My advice to other aspiring musicians is to never give up on your dreams no matter what anyone tells you and always to be proud next to any work you release.

What can fans expect from your live show?

You can definitely expect a dreamy R&B set featuring all of my original songs, a cover, and a teaser of my unreleased song.
