Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Stay Strong”?

I actually wrote “Stay Strong” a while back and revised it recently to be release-ready. This song has been the start of a lot of things in my life and the positive message behind it will always bring a smile on my face

Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?

I originally wrote “Stay Strong” after going through troubles with my closest friends and I used the song as a way to escape; this was a tough time for me! 

Any plans to release a video for the single?

Right now, I don’t plan to release a video for this song but I do have a video planned for my next release “don’t care”!

How was the recording and writing process?

The writing process was difficult but so much fun. I loved searching through my mind for emotions I was feeling or just things I felt needed to be said. After I finished writing every song I felt so satisfied and thrilled.  

The recording process was amazing. I felt at home as soon as I entered the studio and started recording. 

Listening back to each take and being able to see the songs that I put my heart into, actually come to life, was the best feeling ever.

What role does the Bay Area play in your music?

The Bay area has always been home to me and it is such an open and supportive environment where I always feel safe.

How Alessia Cara and Ariana Grande has influence your writing?

Alessia Cara has influenced my music by teaching me important ideas like self love in her song “Scars to your Beautiful” which is why I like writing songs like “Stay Strong” and Ariana Grande helped me find sounds and vibes that I really enjoy. 

So I like incorporating those in my own music. 

Does the new single mean we can expect a new material – how’s that coming along? Any tentative release date or title in mind?

Yes! I have a few songs all set to release this year! Including “don’t care” which comes out this valentine’s day.
