Hiya folks thanks for joining us in the virtual RGM lounge today, grab a brew and take a seat.
What made you decide that music is a thing for you?
I don’t think I really decided music was for me. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say it feels like it’s just what I am meant to do, as if the decision was made for me before I even was born. I’m just doing what feels right, and music has always felt right and natural.
Introduce yourself and your musical history.
I am a 25-year-old singer/songwriter born and raised in Miami, FL. I’ve been walking around humming the constant ever changing tunes in my head, and belting out songs whenever I got a few minutes alone behind closed doors, since as early as I can remember. I didn’t work up the courage to sing in front of anybody until my senior year in high school, and once I opened my mouth and people knew I had a voice they wouldn’t let me stop. From there it was a bit of a domino effect, I went to college for a year for music, where I met producers who helped me get into the studio and start making music of my own. I finally started dropping music myself early 2019 and the balls been rolling ever since.
What’s one question you’re sick of being asked when interviewed?
“Who inspires me” or “who do I compare my musical sound to” because I don’t compare myself to other artists. I am my own person, there is no one sole artist or person in general who inspires me or keeps me going, except for me.. Nor do I think I sound like anyone else. I listen to all genres and eras of music. I would need a top 10 list, at the least, to give you an idea of some of my inspo, but then again every song I make has a different inspiration all together.
Do you sign up to any conspiracy theories?
I entertain the thought of a loooot of conspiracy theories honestly. I think stuff like aliens and mermaids are real but is that even conspiracy? I always entertain the ideas because none of us really know the truth about anything. Is the earth flat? Maybe. Have you been to Antarctica? No? So then how do you know there’s no land on the other side of those ice caps? I’ve seen evidence to support all sides, and all I know is I don’t know so I keep an open mind. Did we really go to the moon? Probably not lol but there’s typically small truths in everything, and a whole lot we’ll never know so I don’t see the harm in just believing what you want.
Did you buy anything you don’t need in the pandemic?
Who didn’t? Some workout equipment that was barely touched, a few hobbies I tried once and never touched again, I even redid an entire room for my studio, and still continue to record in my bedroom lol
What useless party trick do you have?
Rapping busta rhymes verse in “look at me now” is literally all i got.
What was the most fun you have had on stage?
In all honesty, I don’t have that much fun on stage, or not now anyways. I’ve had some really supportive crowds that made me feel incredibly welcome and encouraged me to be less nervous about performing, but I’m the kind of person that wants to have a whole routine and production with choreo and backup dancers that I can rehearse and perfect, as opposed to just walking back and forth and singing.
What was the worst experience on stage?
I’ve been lucky enough to not really have any bad stage experiences, just stuff like sound issues
Tell us something about you that you think people would be surprised about.
I usually keep to myself and don’t go out of my way to talk to people, paired with my RBF makes a lot of people think I’m not very nice or stand-offish but really I’m just incredibly shy and horrible at socializing because my parents didn’t let me out enough growing up lol
If you had to describe your music to an alien how would you describe it?
Zeenshnap zoop dollop mmm boo beeee bop boop bop zwomptay
Hopefully that would translate to “its music you put on when you’re getting ready to dissect your feelings and feel through them, best accompanied with a glass of wine and some comfy PJs”
What makes you stand out as an artist?
I don’t have a good enough perception of myself to answer that question honestly. I like people to take a look and listen and decide for themself. Some people just think i’m cool because of my purple hair, some people like my writing style, some people don’t like me at all, and to each their own.
Right now, what’s pissing you off the most?
The fact that I don’t have 10 million dollars in my bank account right now
What’s your favourite song to play live and why?
This new release, off my mind, has been one of my favorites to perform as of late, but also my song too far gone is very personal to me and I really enjoy singing it.
I hear you have new music, what can you tell us about it?
My new song, off my mind, is a song about avoiding yourself and emotions by indulging in different vices. The song tells a story of a girl who sits at home alone, despising the thought of being alone, so instead she runs to the club and washes away her worries with the cup after cup. It’s a good late-night drive, or sipping wine in your room song.
Talk me through the thought process of the single.
I don’t really recall my thought process while writing the song. I wrote it and then essentially forgot about it. I found the reference track on my phone months later, when I happened to be going through a very similar situation to what the song is about and fell in love with it.
What was the recording process like?
The recording process was a little frustrating because I lost the original project file for this song, lost the instrumental, and everything. When I tried to re-record it I just couldn’t get the same vibe of the original reference, so we had to manipulate a lot of the original reference track in the mixing process.
Would you change anything now that it’s finished?
I will always want to go back and change something if i listen hard enough.
What are your plans for the year ahead?
I’m really just going with the flow right now, creating and releasing at my own pace. I don’t have any schedule of what’s to come next.
Is there anything else you would like to share with the world?
Just a reminder that everybody’s story is different, and everybody’s timing is different. Don’t compare your path to others.
