What do you enjoy most about being a musician?

The ability to connect with people around the world, with whom I may not have that much in common. It inspires me to create music and share my stories. I hope my music makes my listeners feel seen.

Which musician would you like to collaborate with?

So many cuz I love all types of music. If the collab is authentic & chemistry is right, I’m down! That said, Megan Thee Stallion. love how authentic she is, boldly she expresses herself & how she doesn't shy away from uncomfortable material.

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

Invest it right back into my music. Making music as an indie artist is not cheap. Putting out a full-length debut album is a leap of faith, to say the least. So this $10K will be the most welcome addition to my life!
