What do you enjoy most about being a musician?

The cathartic release that I get from putting my most raw and honest thoughts and feelings on the paper and on the track. There’s no feeling like having a vision and fully capturing it through a song and video.

Which musician would you like to collaborate with?

Sza. I love her sounds and entire aesthetic and I think it would blend really well with what I do and intend to do.

If you were the next Opening Act, what would you do with $10,000?

I would give some of it to my mom to start to make a scratch in the debt I feel I owe her for all that she has done for me and my sisters. But anything she doesn’t accept would go all to my music and funding my career.
