Tell us a few things about your new work. What is the main idea behind it?
This project is special to me because it signifies a special and turning point in my life. These songs are about me releasing some of the things I feel are still personally holding me back: whether it be hurt, fear, self-doubt; I wanted to tackle that with this project.
Your EP title, 33, signifies your age. What advice would you give to your younger self?
To love and believe in yourself. And to never lose sight of your dreams!
Do you like the idea of collaborating? Is songwriting a lonely process?
I love the idea of collaborating simply because it enhances the overall movement. More ears, more gifts, more creativity; more magic! I’m excited for some collabs I have in the works!
Favorite album of the past year?
I’m torn between Beyoncé’s “Renaissance” & Chris Brown’s “Breezy” —I’m wearing both of those albums out!
What is the biggest challenge you have faced as an artist so far?
I think the entire process of being an independent artist has been a challenge. I’m learning so much while constantly taking leaps of faith. It’s a scary yet rewarding process!
Your music has positive vibes. What is your biggest regret though?
Thank you! I try to make sure my music is uplifting; because I write with the intent to heal. I like to believe that things happen for a reason; but I do wish I stopped letting fear hold me back much sooner in life.
My new music video “Proud” from my album “The Arrival” is out now! “33” drops later this month; and I want my supporters to pick the next single from that EP. More content on my YouTube page coming so soon. And I just plan to be more visible overall over these next few months. And more performances!
