Where are you from?
How did you get into music?
“My life-long dream came to fruition starting from the young age of seven when I fell in love with both music and violin after hearing my mother’s passionate playing fill the air. From then on, her influence has shaped my view and music, especially after her sudden passing during my sophomore year of high school. After she passed, I withdrew emotionally and immersed myself in the comfort of music and memories. My grandmother, a hard-working woman recognized my musical talent, pushed me forward, and held me up during this time of loss. With her help, I was able to fully realize my dream and passion. Music became my sole way of connecting with others and concentrating in school. I became aware and sensitive to the issues that surrounded my school, classmates, and community and I wrote lyrics that flowed through the things I empathized and experienced.”
What are the challenges of being an artist?
“It’s hard to continue to hustle, people don’t realize everything that goes into being successful, you have to invest money, time, effort, and blood, sweat, and tears.”
Who inspires you the most musically?
“What had inspired me the most was classical music but now I draw from all genres.”
What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?
“Real-life lessons, whether it be love, breakups, or real-world events.”
What is your greatest achievement as a musician?
“Working with Latin Grammy-winning producer Lannie Battistini.”
Are you planning on releasing new music soon?
“Of course! I have multiples singles coming out in the next few months.”
Anything else you want the audience to know about you?
“I want my fans and future fans to know that I care, and will always push out what is true to my heart.”
