Where are you located now and where are you originally from?
I am currently in Boston, and grew up in Connecticut.
Who has been your greatest influence?
Piano is my primary instrument and growing up I was attracted to Billy Joel, Coldplay, Ben Folds, and Alicia Keys. They were artists I tried to mimic as a kid because piano was at the forefront of their music. I am really into film scores as well. I went to Emerson college to study sound design. Most of my college friends live in LA and work in the film industry. I studied sound for film but was already attracted to it even as a child, so cinema inspires me as well. Artists today like MUNA, 1975, and Petric.
What is your latest and greatest?
I released my first EP back in February. "Look What I Can Do." I got sober a few years ago and it brought me back to music. I have a single coming out October 15th called "Ghost" that's available for pre-save now.
What are you most looking forward to this year?
Finally feeling comfortable and in the groove of releasing music on a consistent basis. I put it down cause I struggled to accept myself as an artist. It was easier to accept myself as gay before accepting myself as an artist. I'm ready to start living fully comfortable in who I am.
What would you say to your younger self if you could?
You have to ask the world for what you want. I have learned that lesson outside of music but it applies to this in a sense as well.
When you're not feeling motivated how do you get back on track?
If I’m not motivated I actually step away from it. One of the most important things that I've learned is that taking breaks is essential on a short term and long term basis to gain perspective and get back on track. On the other hand, sometimes just starting something and creating forward motion can create motivation in the moment.
