Congratulations on your new EP “Tell Them Stories!” What was your inspiration behind it?
Thanks so much!! Truly I’m a very talkative person and love saying what’s on my mind.. I love hearing people’s stories and also sharing mine with my fans. I wanted to express the importance of not taking life so seriously.. and how all experiences (good or bad) lead to a good damn story! So tell them!
What was your favorite memory creating the track?
Meeting my friend John Samuel. We made this track the first day we met and the rest is history! The whole experience was insane to make this one. Forever will be a special one.
“Tell Them Stories” is an ode to the people in your life who believed in you along the way. How has that support kept you motivated while creating music?
It’s what keeps me goin! I believe in this so much and to have the people I do in my corner keeps me sane. I love bein with them, and can’t thank them enough for all the sacrifices they make to help. When this becomes big I want them to know we gonna be LIVING! Just gotta keep goin!
You write a lot about your personal experiences. What experiences are the easiest for you to write about and what are the hardest?
I think it really comes down to a lot of variables. I feel like I can write about a lot but it might feel really abstract sometimes... Any experience that gets me emotional is easy to write about, which is almost everything lol. I feel like I have a nostalgic disorder which makes me value a lot of moments when they become a memory.
How does “Tell Them Stories” represent your new era of music after your debut album?
I’m older, have grown as a person, more confident in who I am as an artist and as a human. This era has become more vulnerable naturally as I’ve progressed. This is me and everything that has brought me to this point in my life.
What artists are inspiring you right now?
Been listening to a lot of Bob Marley, Posty, Benee, Jack Harlow. Love their originality so much.
What’s next? Any tours or a new album on the way?
More music, more music, and more music! No tours yet.. But got some shows comin soon!
