Five words that define yourself?
I would define myself as passionate, energetic, soulful, determined, and creative
Favorite pre-studio traditions?
My favorite pre studio traditions are warming up my voice with some exercises and also to get myself in whatever mood I need to be in for a certain song/lyrics. I make a list of how I’m feeling at the moment on one side of the paper and then make a list of the moods that would equal the type of the song or lyrics I’m singing for the studio session. This helps me really get into the song and become more comfortable in the studio.
Top Five musical influences?
Top five biggest musical influences are Lauren Hill, Rihanna, Erykah Badu, Sza, and FKA Twigs
Define the music industry
The music industry nowadays is quite different from
how it was back then but also kind of the same as back then. Most music nowadays have artists that are similar in their style of singing or rapping when it comes to hip hop and rap. The popular genres including rap/ hip hop and pop are taking over the music industry right now which isn’t a bad thing, but more soul and heart are needed in songs these days to relate and connect to people all around the world. I think it’s a hard and long journey to make in the music industry, but I also believe more authentic and real soulful music is needed more in the industry. I think people are slowly starting to see these type of singers/ artists rise and climb more like Daniel Ceaser, H.E.R, Sza, and more. So I’m hoping I reach my way to the top and connect people with my music on day.
Any artists and personalities you want to collaborate with?
Some artists I would work with more are some dmv artists like Rico Nasty and my good friend Kase Cobain who is an up and coming rapper in the DMV as well.
Any Shout outs?
I want to give a shoutout to my Mom who I love dearly and can’t be thankful enough for her support in my dream of becoming a singer and also my best friend Ariel who keeps me going and believes in me even when I don’t believe in myself.
Name ten artists you want to work with
I would love to work with artists like Rihanna, Sza, H.E.R, Daniel Ceaser, the internet, Jorja Smith, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Sam Smith, and Erykah Badu
