Q:When you decide it’s time to make a new record, is that more exciting or stressful?
Ans: It’s both exciting and stressful. I like to make music that I would personally enjoy but I also like to take in consideration the reactions of the listener. So there’s times where I have to make a sacrifice and take something out from a song just to keep that balance.
Q: How do you shut things out?
Ans: I literally have to ask everyone to leave me alone and I lock myself in a room and start writing.
Q: How easily do songs tend to come to you?
Ans : It definitely varies on many things. Sometimes an idea comes to me and I write the melody, choose the chords, and have the flow and lyrics almost immediately and other times it takes a few hours/days.
Q: What is you favorite song to belt out at the bar/in the car?
Ans: Right now it would have to be XO Tour Life by Lil Uzi Vert, SAUCE! By xxxtentacion, and I’m Still by Juice WRLD
Q: You write all of your own music; where do you draw inspiration from when you write songs and what’s your favorite part about the process?
Ans: I draw inspiration from waking up every day. Not everyone is fortunate enough to get another moment to experience life so that to me is something that easily sparks ideas for writing. I think that my favorite part of the process would have to be watching it all come together. It’s like watching a seed blossom into a flower
Q: If you could perform with anyone, in the future, who would it have to be?
Ans: I would love to perform with either Frank Ocean, Lil Uzi, or Travis Scott
Q:Do you have any events coming up or recording going on right now?
Ans: Right now, other than the lyric video that I just released, I am in the final steps of recording 4 new songs and in the beginning stages of producing a music video.
Q:When and why did you start playing?
Ans: I think I started playing music about 3 years ago but I didn’t start writing and producing on a serious level until about a year ago.
Q: Which famous musicians have you learned from?
Ans: I’ve learned a lot from watching interviews of my favorite artists. Musically, financially, and just how to handle things personally. Getting a perspective from someone who is in the position you aspire to be really gives you a clearer view of the world you’re going into.
Q: How do you balance your music with other obligations – mate, children, job?
Ans: I love to stay active. I do a lot of sports (mainly basketball and football), but I also just enjoy being outdoors in general. It does get difficult at times to balance music from everyday life but I’ve found that planning on days to write or making music on my downtime, whether it be melodies or lyrics, really has improved my efficiency with music in general.
