Describe your sound in 3 words
Tough question, but I’d say Indie, Alternative and pop?
Tell us a few things about your new work.
“Music From Midnight Emotions Vol. 1” is my debut album, which I wrote 95% in the evening and late hours. It’s also a really personal album too, with many of the songs coming from my life and experiences that I’ve been through. A lot of it touches on COVID-19 and my struggles with social media, the inabilities to say how I feel, and overall the album encapsulates my want to understand my emotions.
Do you like the idea of collaborating? Is songwriting a lonely process?
Honestly, collaborating is one of the things I really want to do. Because yes, it’s very lonely songwriting by myself, and if you work by yourself, sometimes you question if what you’re doing is good enough; there’s no one to bounce off of. So, if given the chance I’d love to work with someone.
Artists and people who have influenced and inspired you?
There’s a family friend that I’ve known since I was very young, his name is Peter Walsh. He’s a pianist and singer, who inspired me to do music in the first place. Other than that, artists like Bruno Major, Vera Blue, Halsey as well. And a lot of my friends who are musicians as well.
What would you change in the music industry?
I want to tell people, that good music comes from inside. It comes from passion, and genuine desire to share a piece of yourself with. If I could, I’d want to change the idea that there are good songs and bad ones, because all songs come from a place of passion.
Which book should we read while listening to your music?
Hmm…I recommend Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. Let me know your thoughts on it
What is the one habit/thing you cannot live without?
I have a blanket I sleep with (that I named Blanky as a kid), and even now, I still snuggle with to help me fall asleep. It’s definitely a comfort for me, and without it I can have trouble falling asleep for sure heh.
