How would you classify your music? 

It’s a bit of a crossover genre that’s based in indie-pop drawing influences from nostalgic RnB/soul music.

Who are some of your top 5 musical influences?

Feist

Phoenix

Hall & Oates

Tame Impala

John Mayer

What do you want fans to take from your music?

I hope fans continue to be comfortable with being themselves. Like what you like, love what you love, and never apologize for it.

How’s the music scene in your locale?

I live in LA, so the music scene is gargantuan. There are people constantly writing, collaborating, and working together in hopes of making something they’re proud of. Happy to live in a place that fosters creativity.

What is the best concert you have been to? What do you like most about playing live?

Best concert I’ve been to would have to be seeing Hiatus Kaiyote live. I’ve never felt so emotional listening to a jam session, but they pulled on my emotions there. The level of musicianship and artistry made me want to quit in the most inspiring way.

Is there a song on your latest release here that stands out as your personal favorite, and why?

Well, we just released a single, and there are more on the way to eventually occupy a whole EP. There are a couple standouts, including a disco-y song I’m really excited to see what the response is.

How have you evolved as an artist over the last year?

I think I’ve found a sound I’m really happy and comfortable with. I’ve been in the studio with a lot of artists, and I’ve learned to play to my strengths as a writer or as a producer in those environments. But I always hope to learn and grow more. It’s a process, and I’m doing my best to absorb everything I can.

If you could meet, play a gig, co-write a song, have dinner, have a drink with any band or artist (dead or alive) who would it be?

I don’t know if I want to grab drinks with my favorite artists because I think it’ll alter my views of them so drastically & I wouldn’t be able to enjoy their music in the same regard. But I’d love to write with Frank Ocean or Pharrell and play a gig with Phoenix. DREAMS.

What’s next for you?

New EP, more touring, more visuals. V excited for what’s to come.
