Tell us more about what got you into music and developing your own story?
I’ve always gravitated towards making music. Even when I was super young my mom says I sang before I could talk. I begged for a guitar at 8 years old and have been writing songs ever since. I’ve been through so many phases with the music I listen to. I had a huge Taylor Swift phase, an indie phase, a country phase, a oc music/electronic phase. And I think all of that developed me into the artists I am today.
How do you feel when you are recording new songs?
Starting a new song gives me this feeling of excitement and endless possibility. When I’m recording a new song, or writing a new song, I feel a release of emotion and creativity that’s hard to describe. And some of my favorite emotional moments and memories are from the recording process.
As an artist, what do you believe is your purpose?
I think as an artist, it’s your responsibility to be genuine and honest in your work. And to give people the words for the feelings they can’t describe. I just want my music to help people feel everything fully and freely. I want to create an escape.
Share with us one of your favorite songs you have written and why it’s made it to the top of your list.
One of my favorite songs I’ve ever written is “disappear”. It was such an emotional release for me. I wrote it in the uber on my way to a session at a time when I was reflecting on my love story with this person. I just feel like it captures the moments I play back in my mind perfectly while also conveying the universal feeling of heartbreak that I was experiencing.
If you could sing for any event, which would you pick and why?
A rave in the silversphere, of course! Because that’s where all my girlies go to party.
Share with us a moment where you experienced a harsh downfall and how you got back on your feet.
I always knew I wanted to be a musician. But as you get older, people start to discourage you from going after risky dreams like that. There was a period of time where I thought it was impossible for me to make a career in music and that was a really hard mindset to be in. When it came to picking colleges, and thinking about my future, I knew this was the only thing that could make me happy, but I still had these doubts and fears. It was a matter of genuinely valuing my happiness and working hard to believe in myself again. That just came with sticking to it, writing all the time, and putting my music out there even if it was scary.
What kind of advice would you give to up and coming singers?
Make sure you know what you want before letting other people make decisions for you, especially as a woman in music. It’s very easy to let your vision for yourself get clouded by other people’s goals and ambitions. Just make sure you stick up for yourself.
When I say “space” you say “….”
In what ways do you believe people can finally become more accepting of others?
By having hard conversations and truly listening to others’ experiences.
Do you see yourself going into different areas of the entertainment industry?
At some point, I would love to help develop and give opportunities to young female artists. I think there’s not enough space for them to truly experiment and discover their capabilities because we are so quickly put into boxes within the industry. I want to encourage women to produce their own music.
