Who are your musical influences? You’ve said that you draw on music from the past—do you have any present-day influences?
What was it like growing up in rural Northern California? How do you feel your environment influenced your perspective on life?
Northern California is a little cut off from the rest of the world like it’s a bubble, but I love it there ’cause I get to just be myself. Growing up there helped me develop a free spirit.
How has the music scene in the Bay Area shaped your vocal and writing style?
The Bay Area has mad energy, and really good people, I feel inspired by the R&B scene in the bay right now.
What made you choose to cover “Cruel Intentions” instead of another track?
The emotion in the song stood out to me as soon as I heard it, and I wanted to cover it. The vibe is so soulful and he really crushed the original performance, so I wanted to do the song justice and I like how my version is similar but different.
Can we expect some original songs from you on your debut EP?
Yeah I have a bunch of solo original material soon to be released, collabs with some dope producers and writing more music all the time. I’m loving the stripped-down soul sound so maybe will try and add one or two on the EP as well as some R&B bangers.
What do you enjoy writing about (song wise)?
