Thank you very much for your time! Before we introduce your new release to our readers – what kind of drink would you recommend to zip on while they listen to your new music?
I would definitely suggest a nice glass of wine at the start to get you chill and in the mood. However, that may turn into a gin and tonic by the end, I’ve been guilty of that myself.
Please give us an update about – new single, new album, tour dates, new videos?!
I released my single “Star Sign” on the 8th of July which is a Pop, R&b, Afro fusion with LA signed rapper Maez301, which is all about horoscopes and love. I released my debut album last week called “Love Under The Influence” which features my tracks “Star Sign, One by One and Backseat”. It’s a mixture of vibes and is sure to grab the ears of any listener of all genres. I am holding my release party at Flare Carnaby on the 30th July to celebrate my release, I am also performing at Island Summer Splash in Croydon in August. This summer is going to be a hot one.
We live in times of many conspiracy theories. Which, harmless, theory would you wish were true? (For example Dinos living inside Earth or E.T. living in a home in California)
This is a strange one but it would be cool if mermaids were real. I can just imagine going in the sea and there are mermaids and mermen getting angry with tourists and swimmers for trespassing. It would be interesting to hear how someone came up with that in the first place.
What fashion style or brand would best describe your music?
The fashion style is for sure a new slick style. Oversized T-Shirt, cargos, Jordan’s and some clean jewellery (but not too much). Some of my music can match the let-loose holiday style of swimming trunks and sliders, with maybe a skinny necklace, as a lot of the songs are summery.
Tell us more about your songs! Topics! Message!?
The message is quite simple. Have fun! My recent project was inspired by the last few years of being cooped up inside, I wanted to make something that people can enjoy wherever they are. Star Sign has a message that you can find comparability with someone through horoscopes, no matter how toxic it may be. You can make things work, but also bear in mind what that star sign may come with. Gemini’s are careless, Scorpio’s are reckless, Virgo’s are crazy and Leo’s always want to lead. Either way we are all beautiful.
Beside music, do you have any special talents?
I speak fluent Spanish. I studied it for 10 years and still study to this day, it comes in handy when working with Spanish or Latino artists. I can also do a Donald Duck voice, not much of a talent, more of an unattractive party trick.
Name 5 things we all should know about you as an artist?!
– I write about experiences, new and old
– I work with an international producer
– I trained in Musical Theatre
– I wanted to be a choreographer and dancer before music
– I prefer performing in front of a larger crowd than smaller
How did you learn to sing/ to write/ to play??
I learnt to sing at secondary school. I was studying performing arts and a part of that was singing, i hadn’t had lessons before and I was really excited. Before I knew it my teacher said I had a great voice so I did extra lessons, I would practice all the time and I found a love for singing. Fast forward 5 years, i met a producer who liked my vibe. He was working with recording artists so I learnt how to record my voice, how to sing more R&B and add versatility. Learning how to write came natural through working with songwriters and studying them, I also had a mentor, Jamei Black, during the lockdown. I wrote my first ever song in 2020 and it’s going to be on a future project alongside other hits I’ve written.
A question you’d like to answer, but never been asked in an interview before?! + Answer pls
Why did you lean more towards a music career than a dance career?
A: I love dance, it was my first love. But there is something about being in the studio and writing and creating that I get more of a buzz from. What is great is I can dance to my music, so although I’m not just a dancer, I can create music I can do what I love to
