When are your new projects coming out?: I have been working with my good friend, Jordie, on a ton of new music. But of course, I want to make the songs the best they can be before releasing them. So I will probably release 2-3 more singles within the next few months before releasing an EP sometime this summer. Fingers crossed
What helped you get into music?: I can’t think of a day where I wasn’t singing in the shower or drumming on my lap in the car. I don’t think any specific thing helped me get into music. Music has always been apart of my life and I’ve always been mesmerized by it because it has so much power. It can make you feel any type of way, any time. That’s why I decided to write my own music; because I want to make people feel a certain way. I want people to connect to something in the music whether it’s a lyric, or a melody, or a beat. I want them to feel something and remember that exact moment; where they were, what they were doing, who they were with, and of course, what they were listening to.
What is one thing you would tell your fans?: If you have a goal, don’t just sit around and wait for it to happen. You have to take action and put in the time and effort. Live to your full potential and put in work. But please don’t do it because other people want you to. Do it for you and only you. And trust me, it will pay off
What are your biggest goals for 2017?: I’d love to release 2-3 more singles and hopefully an EP by the end of this year. Once a few more songs get released and depending on the fans’ reactions, I’d like to play some shows. Where? I’m not sure yet. But playing live is one of my favorite things in the whole wide world. I honestly wouldn’t mind if it was a room of 5 people; just knowing that I made one person feel something with a song I wrote is everything to me. But don’t get me wrong…a sold out show would definitely be the coolest thing ever. Overall, I’m really excited for 2017 and I think some pretty rad things will be happening.
