Hello! Thank you for sharing some time with us at Bsquared Magazine today!
Thank you so much! I’m so excited to be here.
When did you become a music lover and what does music bring to your life?
One of my earliest memories is of me in a car seat listening to Tracy Chapman’s “FastCar” and “Careless Whispers” by Wham. To me music captures moments in time and freezes them, whenever we listen to songs that we associate to a specific memory it’s like we can travel back in time and almost relive that moment. I grew up listening to classical music in the mornings, that my dad would play for us and to 80s pop that my mom would have blasting as she was cleaning, which made me want to clean with her. Music for me is the soundtrack to my life and whenever I need to escape, dream, revisit a memory I turn to music. It is my constant source of comfort. I was a dancer for 15 years (started when I was 5), I find it difficult to put into words the feeling I felt of being on stage and moving to the music, using our bodies to translate the emotions of the song, it’s stepping into a whole other world where the song becomes tangible.
What can we expect to see at one of your LIVE shows!?
A bit of drama and theater, it’s the storyteller in me. So, when the world opens up again, I look forward to exploring unconventional live gigs. I love the 70s and the whole underground music scene. It looked so intimate and special, that’s what I try to create with mine.
Who has been your greatest influence?
I take a lot influence from David Bowie, Serge Gainsbourg, Vanessa Paradis, Carla
Bruni, Kate Bush, and Lana Del Rey. It’s difficult to pick just one, because all these
have made such impact in my style. David Bowie was an amazing artist who created
different personas, each new persona meant new music, as well as genre. Serge
Gainsbourg’s writing and arrangement has also made a big impact on my music. I’m
inspired by artists who are not afraid to change and explore different styles and genres.
Please tell us about your new music!!
I originally started out with writing songs in collaboration with my producer S. Peace
Nistades, for my fashion films. These songs were heavily influenced by French-pop andwhere more like a film score than a song. After working on a couple original music, I wanted to try to write pop songs independent from my fashion brand. That’s how I came to write my debut ep, Cannibal. It’s fun and nostalgic, with a cinematic flair. I was inspired by Blade Runner, anime, 80s pop, and 70s rock. It has some ties to the French- pop songs I did in the past, but ultimately, I found my own style (my voice) with this ep.
What are you most looking forward to in 2021?
I’ve been working on my new album! Scheduled to release possibly January 2021, you never now, 2020 has been the year of destroying schedules. So excited to share what we have been working on and I’m anxious to get started on the visuals for this new album. I love film……. and let’s leave it at that for the time being!
