Congratulations on releasing your new EP “The Road,” can you walk us through the process of this creation?
The creation of “The Road.” took place over about a month when I was studying under Ryan Tedder’s Music Production class. It helped me construct my songs in ways that I hadn’t thought of before. Each song had its “vibe” and I carefully crafted each element to sonically build around that vibe. I’m normally an artist that’s very intuitive, but with “The Road.” I put a lot more structure into it.
What is the track that you love or relate to the most?
The track I love the most would be “Gunslinger.” I used lyrics and music to paint a picture of the Wild West and tell a tale of vigilante justice. It’s very much an ode to strong, powerful women. But I relate to “Run Wild.” the most. I often find myself wrapped in the shroud of illusion of social media, and I wanted to make a song that expressed how I felt, which is that it’s all very fake and real people shouldn’t be letting it dictate their lives.
What kind of artist would you classify yourself?
An intuitive one. An artist who is led by something bigger than herself when she creates. An artist who’s also an advocate for people who are widely misunderstood. But if we’re talking genre, then an Alt-Pop Indie artist.
Who would you most like to collaborate with?
Chase Atlantic. I’m mesmerized by their music. I definitely pull inspiration from them when I produce and it would be an honor to collaborate with them.
What is one message you would give to your fans?
The one message I would give to my fans is that no matter what you’re going through or struggling with, even when people mishandle you and your heart because they don’t understand, you are still valid and worthy of gentleness. And you need to be strong for yourself and treat yourself the way you wish others would. Cuz at the end of the day you only have yourself.
What is the most useful talent you have?
My musical ability is definitely the most useful talent I have because it is an outlet for me to express myself in all my perfections and flaws that other people can actually relate to and enjoy. Something that wouldn’t happen otherwise.
What is your creation process?
My creation process largely is just sitting down and putting sounds together. I often can hear a sound or instrument that a song needs before I even record it. So I’ll spend a lot of time trying to recreate what I’m hearing in my head. It’s all very intuitive, and I often feel like I’m being led by a higher power.
What is the toughest decision you had to make in the industry?
The toughest decision I had to make in the industry was spending money on my career that I really needed for other important things like student loans. But I see it as an investment in my future and that will always be worth it.
