Name 5 things we all should know about you as an artist?!

– I love writing, lyrics are everything!

Beside music, do you have any special talents?

I love woodworking. It’s calming and rewarding. Oh and cooking, my food is on point (it involves wine)

Being on stage feels like….!

Being on stage feels like being on fire, I get shaky and adrenalined’ up’ but I love the high I get afterwards.
