I’m in LA!
How did you first start playing music?
I started playing piano when I was a kid which eventually led me to songwriting and performing. I’ve always been a fan of music and I love being able to be an artist and make my own music now.
What’s been happening recently?
A lot! I have been busy recording and planning my song releases.
Your latest single ‘Shut Up!’ came out on Feb 4; what influenced the sound and songwriting?
I wanted to create a song that had attitude and spunk. The lyrics reference themes of royalty and taking back your power through your individuality. I wanted the production to be simple, but powerful because the lyrics are the focal point of the track.
How did you go about writing ‘Shut Up!’?
I wrote “Shut Up!” as a sequel to my song “Too Hot.” Both songs celebrate individuality and being authentic to yourself no matter how much others want to dim your light. It’s about blocking the haters and being confident in your identity.
Where and when did you record/produce/master?
The overall process for “Shut Up!” was very quick. I finished the writing, recording, and mastering in about 3 weeks. I made the song in December 2021 and I’m releasing it now!
How has the pandemic affected your process?
The pandemic has allowed me to focus on music and find my voice. I’ve been writing every day and formulating a pop sound that beat represents me as an artist.
What does your other current single ‘Too Hot’ mean to you?
“Too Hot” is special to me because it’s the song that inspired me to write more unapologetic pop songs like “Shut Up!” I want to bring that fierce pop energy back to the music industry like how it was in the late 2000s early 2010s.
Who are you listening to at the moment?
I’ve been listening to a lot of Noga Erez.
What do you like to do away from music?
I love being active whether that’s playing tennis, hiking, or rock climbing.
What’s planned for 2022?
The plan is to continue to release music and hopefully play some live shows!
Favourite food and place to hang out?
I really like sushi and Mexican food. If I’m not making music, I am usually hanging out outside like at the beach or in the hills on a hike.
