Where are you currently based?

I’m in Montréal, Canada!

How did you first start playing music?

I started playing the piano in high school. I was taught the four basic pop chords by one of my high school friends, continued to teach myself and the rest was history. 

I’ve been singing since I was in diapers, singing the Caillou theme song on repeat. 

What’s been happening recently?

I’ve been working on my debut EP, in and out of the studio with my producer Johan 

Maestro. I’ve also been getting some shows ready. I cannot wait to show you all what I’ve been working on.

Your latest single is out now, what influenced the sound and songwriting?

One of my siblings inspired the song actually. They had been going through some hard times and I wanted to help. The song talks about being there for someone you love so much and the extent of how far that love can take you. For the sound I wanted something big, I wanted an anthem-like feel to really rally the fact that this song can take you out of any “Hurricane”.

How did you go about writing Hurricane?

I actually wrote it on zoom during the pandemic, with three collaborators. QSTNMRKS (producer duo) who were in Holland working on the music, while I came up with Melodies and wrote the lyrics with my friend Begonia (artist). The song wrote itself, in under an hour.

Where and when did you record/produce/master and who did you work with?

We recorded, produced and mastered the song in July of 2022. Johan Maestro produced and mixed “Hurricane”. He is also working on my EP that will be released before the end of the year. 

How did you approach the recording process?

I approached the recording by getting in my zone and really connecting to the song. I had the person the song was dedicated to in my mind, the whole time.

What does this single mean to you?

It means the most. I honestly feel like this song sums up the person I am and the distances I’ll go for the ones I love. I really feel like this song sets the tone for the rest to come. I’m really proud of this single.

Who are you listening to at the moment?

I’d have to say Lisa LeBlanc and Coldplay!

What do you like to do away from music?

Away from music you can either catch me cooking up a storm in the kitchen or going out to dance with some friends. If not, weekend breakfast out at restaurants is one of my favourite things to do. 

What’s planned for the remainder of 2022 going into 2023?

The release of my first EP and some new shows are set for 2022! I can’t wait!

Favourite food and place to hangout?

Poutine Déjeuner from Cochon Dingue, and I love to hangout by the water.
