Q: What Got You Into Music?

"I started doing music at early age because my brother did music. He rapped a lot and had a home studio. I thought it was cool so I copied him. I stuck with it all throughout high school, college even up to now. I've found I enjoy other things as well as music, like editing and videography. Writing music has always been a huge part of my life."

Q: What Are You Goals For Music?

"I want to have a dedicated audience, doesn't have to be millions though that'd be great too, but a dedicated audience who understands me, relates to me and follows me through my journey. Basically doing what I'm doing now but on a larger scale. To make a living off music is the ultimate goal."

Q: Who Is Your Ideal Fan?

"I think people going through a transition in life. Growing up. People experiencing real life experiences and going through those ups and downs. I think there's a stigma around femlae artists staying relatable as they get older and they're known more for who they were rather than who they are now. So I want to remain relatable to those my age as I grow older."

Q: Who's Your Favorite artist To Work With?

"My friend Rob, who goes by Blu Hyku. I met him through one of my coworkers. He actually lives in New York. We've done a few collabs together now. I also enjoyed working with Eddie. We just released Cool Ass Friends. I think ideally i want to work with someone who's open to hella ideas, who can write from the heart and isn't afraid to be the weird person."

Q: What Influenced Your Style of Music?

"I always sing about my feelings or like anything I'm doing. My music is like a diary of my life. Very baseline songwriter singing about anything."
