Welcome to our redaction! Can you tell us how you started to make music?
I started making music at like 5, I would remember getting on the bed and having concerts for my toys writing little things here and there.
What inspires you to write and create?
A lot of things inspire me to write it depends on the mood, each emotion we feel can be used and cultivated it’s just a matter of doing the work once inspired, you know? The factors in life that drive us and what’s going on at that time of writing is able to be captured, When I wrote this I was going through a divorce that really threw me off balance. We were barely married a year before things got bad but there was plenty of good times before that, which made it really tough for me. I was at this crossroad not knowing where to go, it was hard to make heads from tails but I had a lot to write about.
Do you have a specific creative process?
My creative process is fairly simple I think. Once I get an emotion I ride with it and write as much as I can. When I get “stuck” or lose the moment I move onto another song and experience that one the same way, going through writing several pieces often instead of one, I write every day for several hours then going over material making corrections, and what not until all those songs are done.
What do you plan for the future?
My plan for the future is to get picked up by a major label like Universal. This year in 2021 I’m planning on releasing a bunch of music at least a single a week. I’m working on my album right now at the Salt Mine Studio Oasis in Mesa Arizona one of the best recording spots in the world, and have my eyes set on Next year’s Grammys. The team I have around me is incredible. My engineer Damien LaClaire has really helped me find my sound. Recently produced Lil Baby’’s last multi-platinum album. He’s got a really impressive resume so I’m extremely honored to be working with him. My singing Coach Kira Fontana one of L.A.s best vocal coaches has helped me find new depth in my voice, expanding my abilities.
I have been traveling the United States working with some of the best engineers such as Serge Tsai creator of “Hips Don’t Lie” by Shakira and “American Boy” by Kanye West. I have also gotten to work with amazing producer GeeFlow at Premier Studios in New York, he’s worked with artists such as Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, The Weekend. So it was really cool to collab with him.
I plan on sticking to this route and look forward to the future collaborations we do, definitely 2021 is going to be a big year for us.
