Where are you located now and where are you originally from?
I’m originally from Palm Desert CA, born and raised desert rat lol. Now I live in Temecula, CA. I’ll just say, the weather is much better! Who has been your greatest influence? I don’t think I have just one person, my biggest influences have been my family, my mentors, and all the artists I listened to growing up. What is your latest and greatest? My new song “Lips Like Candy”!! I’m super proud of it :) Are you performing LIVE soon? As of right now no, but hopefully soon! It’s been way too long! What are you most looking forward to in 2022?
I have a lot of goals, getting signed, getting a record label, performing again (if the pandemic allows it haha), and hopefully I’ll be traveling! How did you deal with all the changes in the past two years that the music industry has gone through? It’s a constant battle, the industry is constantly changing, and I believe it’s impossible to really know the industry. Im still growing and learning all there is to learn, so I’m just trying to go with the flow of everything. What would you say to your younger self if you could? I would tell her to believe in herself, and keep going. There were so many times that I held myself back because someone told me I was doing too much, or “that isn’t the right song for you”, and I regret listening to those people. Now that I’ve learned that lesson, my mental health is so much better, and I’m a better artist. Follow your gut! Always! On a scale from ONE to TEN, how driven are you?
1000000000000000/10!!! I eat, sleep and breathe my passions. When you're not feeling motivated how do you get back on track? I take a day to reset. Usually that for me is going to see my family, or reading, or going outside. The main thing that makes me feel demotivated is my phone, so in order to get back on track I’ll pretty much do anything to get away from my phone lol. How much do you believe LUCK plays a role in success? I’m not sure if I really believe in luck. I believe in hard work. You don’t get anywhere by saying “I hope I get lucky!” You get somewhere by putting your back into it. How can we stay up to date with you?
