What first drew you into music?
In New York my parents were drawn to RnB and Hip Hop, it was very prevalent there. Around my house when I was young I was exposed to artist like Tupac, DMX, Destiny’s Child, Aaliyah and G-Unit. My family used music as a way to escape, so when I got older I did as well. That’s what drew me to music, the beauty of the escape.
Listening to your music we can tell you love incorporating interesting new sounds and techniques within each track! What inspires you to experiment and evolve?
I love to create, so when I do so, I like to try something different/ something new each time. We have access to a multitude of sounds. Other new and old artist inspire me to try new things. Some are Travis Scott, Earl Sweatshirt, Brockhampton, Flying Lotus. My artist friends do the same for me too. They inspire me everyday.
It seems like you already found your signature sound 😊 Do you have any tips for upcoming musicians that can’t seem to find their own sound?
I think to find your sound, you just need to have fun with it. When you start out, no one knows who you are, you’re not doing it for them. You make it for you. Experiment, and use other artist for inspiration then throw your own twist to it.
Your track “Sit Back” is your best track in our opinion! From its artwork to the Incredibly powerful sound we absolutely love it. Could you tell us more about the story behind this track? Also, what is your creative process like?
The track SIT BACK! is mainly about my travels of my day to day life. I was expressing how I was done with self loathing because of other people. That even if I’m sad I’m still gonna prove those who doubted me wrong. The creative process started off with me wanting to let out my aggression, from there I just wrote what was on my mind.
What are your musical goals for the future?
My goal is just to be known by a wide margin and inspire others.
What do you have planned for the coming months? Any upcoming projects we can get excited about?
I plan on releasing multiple EP’s and Singles in the upcoming months. A two part EP called “Into the Void” is coming soon.
