Since I was very young! However I guess I would say officially 13 or 14 then officially Industry stuff at 15.
What drew you to the music industry?
Well I knew I wanted to sing. I think the industry stuff just comes with it. The experience of how things work in this business becomes familiar so it just comes with the artistry and the craft.
Please explain your creative process.
You know my real creative process is just sitting at the piano with out any pressure and creating. Though I am usually open to other ways & am able to do other things, That what I like the best.
Is there a hidden meaning in any of your music?
Sometimes but not really - lol. I think sometimes theres a double meaning with my music which happens alot so it that sense yes.
What is the best song you ever released and why?
Still A Rainbow... Because I had full creative control my audio person understood me better & his beatboxing was cute as well!
What is your favorite song(s) to perform? Or, if not performing, what song do fans seem to favor?
Right now I would have to say Lovely. It is simple & people love to sing along. But I noticed Fans really like my song go for it. They usually dm me or ask about it later.
Do you think you could get any better as an artist/band? If so, how would you achieve that?
Of course! I would love to continue on my path but add a few things. I have a feeling some of my new fans don't know what I've done in the past... that's kind of scary in a way because they never saw what I did before so they might know certain things that I used to do but don't do as often if that makes sense.
Are you strictly a solo act or do you collaborate with others?
I used to collaborate with other artists but it just doesn't work out so... I collab very little now.
Have you ever dealt with performance anxiety?
Actually sometimes I do. Sometimes when everybody is waiting for you & something goes wrong... Yeah I get a Little anxiety.
Tell about a magical moment or positive experience that has happened during your music career.
Once I was performing on a street corner, this guy just walking by, I started the groove part of my song All Eye'z On Me and he just turned around as if the song was calling him & walked over to me & gave me a tip .
