Describe your sound in 3 words
It. Trap. Soca! lol
Tell us a few things about your new song ‘Slow Connection/Censor’. What is the story behind it?
“Slow Connection” & “Censor” is the double side first single of my recently released EP, “22”. 2 sides released on 12-22… for “22” that was released 2-2-22 (as you can see I have a thing for the number “2”. lol) I really wanted to challenge my songwriting this past summer, so I locked myself in the studio and recorded a bunch of new songs exclusively with my brother in sound Rob Jeanyus & it was just vibes! When it was time for my team to hear the music, we just went with the vibes & thats how these two became the first single.
What first got you into music?
I’ve loved music for as long as I could remember. In middle school, seeing how big & diverse pop music was, I got hooked. I used to have a “calendar” of all the things I had to do aka things I recorded & would watch over & over again until I knew it word for word.
Favourite album of the past decade?
Thats a tough one. I’m just gonna go with what I’ve been playing nonstop since I’ve heard it & thats “Bubba” by Kaytranada. The music is a vibe…it takes you places. Then I saw him live, virtual show & in Atlanta, & it just makes the album that much greater to me.
What would you change in the music industry?
Oh man theres so much but I’d change the way Indie artist on the come up are treated. There are so many cash grab situations that you find yourself in bc ppl know they can make quick money off artists who are hungry & often desperate for a chance to make it. It’s already a tough process & most acts starting out DON’T have the capital for majority of opportunities. Promoters will have contests already knowing who the winner is, while still taking money from people who really want an opportunity. It’s pretty unfortunate.
In which state of mind do you imagine people might listen to your music?
You gotta be in the mood for VIBES! A high vibrational mood, ready for something positive from the universe… whether it be getting ready to go hang w/ friends, a nice vacation, a night cap w/ your partner, etc.
What would you say is your biggest vice?
My biggest vice is FOOD! I am a foodie! I love all kinds of food, will try the “weirdest” foods, watch food shows, etc. I do a happy dance when I get good food or see good looking food coming my way. I also turn sour when I’m hungry or the food wasnt good lol Food is by far my biggest vice for sure. Papa gotta eat!
