Flawless sounds honest, charming and very chill indeed. Tell us a few things about it, what is the story behind it?
Flawless is about my ideal Sunday. I love chillin in bed with my person and listening to my new favourite track of the week on repeat. I really wanted to capture a Sunday Vibes Only kinda feeling on this track. We all get caught up in the day-to-day bullshit and forget about just being in the moment.
Where do you draw inspiration from in general?
I pull inspiration from my life experience. I feel drawing inspiration from what is happening in my reality makes for more genuine and relatable art.
Is honesty always the best policy?
The simple answer is yes but I feel there is a lot of depth to that question. Something I try to live by is the ideal of being ruthlessly compassionate. Not everyone is in a place in their journey to accept that philosophy in the moment so it’s always smart to be able to read the room ya know.
Artists and people who have influenced and inspired you?
Love this question. Music has always been a religion for me here is a list of artists that have really touched my soul.. Micheal Jackson, Ray Charles, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Robert Johnson, Sublime, NOFX, The Weeknd, Justin Bieber, Son House, Operation Ivy, The Doors, H.E.R., Halsey, Jay-Z, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Eminem, Jacob Banks, Summer Walker, Al Green, Anderson.Paak, Billie Holiday, blackbear, Billy Joel, Bruno Mars, Cautious Clay, Chris Botti, Dr. Dre, Frank Ocean, GIVEON, Halsey, Kid Kudi, Leon Bridges, Post Malone, 6lack… man I could go on and on honestly. Outside of music Jay Shetty is someone that has inspired me to to chase the unknown. Dig that shit.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced as an artist so far?
I’d say my biggest challenge as an artist is just being able to create art as a main source of income. I’m looking forward to the day when I’m able to give 100% of my time to my art.
Favourite music related film?
Damn! Haha so many solid music related films. I’d have to say the movie Ray. Jamie Foxx crushed that role! I’ve watched that movie well over 30 times.
You’d give up making music for…
Nothing. It will always be a part of my reality. I wouldn’t be able to be the best version of myself if I wasn’t able to make music.
