Where are you currently based?
I’m currently based in Perth, Western Australia.
How did you first start playing music?
I was singing as a hobby from a young age but my proper start came in when my cousin and fellow artist, Rosel, asked me to join a studio session a while back and I thought I’d get on the mic and give this a go. After the session, I had my first feature on an original song called Nightfall.
What’s been happening recently?
As you know, I just released my debut track ‘Mean That’, but I’ve also been working on A LOT of original music, and some collaborations in the Dance music scene, keep an eye out!
Your new single ‘Mean That’ is out now, what influenced the sound and songwriting?
‘Mean That’ is my first piece of original work that I’ve banked for a while and I’m really happy to put this out. I wrote the song while I was going through some relationship struggles. People say things and don’t mean it and when you leave the relationship they go back to saying things they don’t mean to get you back. It’s like a never ending cycle and I wanted to portray it. The track overall has a very RnB and pop vibe, which mesh well together.
But it would be great to hear from everyone what they thought about the track, my DM’s are open!
Where and when did you record and who with?
I probably finished recording ‘Mean That’ at the start of 2020 with FRAAN, an incredible producer from Perth. He produced the track for me too!
What do you like to do away from music?
I am a huge sports fan, so there’s a lot of games I keep up with on the weekend. I play sports and love to hit the gym too. Along with this, music and my day job, I try find time to keep a social life!
Who are you listening to at the moment?
As you’d expect, Drake is one of the main artists on my playlists but I’ve been vibing a lot of Bazzi and Stanaj lately.
What’s planned for the remainder of 2020?
It’s going to be a busy few months for me, I’ve got a few collaborations and original work releasing soon. As I said, be sure to keep an eye out.
Favourite food and place to hangout?
There’s nothing better than being at the local pub watching the footy or soccer with the boys, then having a chicken parmi (laughs)!
