Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?
“From a very young child, I always moved around a lot. I have many siblings and we moved from house to house, changing schools, and constantly re-adapting. Finally, I feel in the past year I’ve been solid in the same location where I was able to focus all of my energy on my music.”
Where are you from?
“Originally born in Brampton, currently living in Welland, ON Canada. My family is originally from Jamaica and most are still living there.”
When did you start music?
“I started creating my own music in 2012 but started taking it very seriously the past two years. I started predominantly rapping and then moved into a more RnB / rap genre.”
How did you get into music?
“I got into music from a very young age. My mother is a pastor, and my father played the piano. Through church, I was brought up to sing and play the drums. Both my parents love to sing, so it always encouraged me to use my voice.”
Who inspires you the most musically?
“I would say I’m inspired by Drake because his music reflects all aspects of life. Obviously, he is a huge world-known artist but he is from Toronto, Canada which is basically right where I’m from. I find a lot of hope knowing someone made it out of the city and blew up as much as he did, and still continuously drops hits after being in the industry for so long.”
What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?
“I want to reach an audience who can connect with my music and relate to the stories and lyrics I write. I’m pretty diverse with each song, so of course, I want people to vibe and enjoy the music with the beats, but also relate on an emotional level to the lyricism.”
Tell us about any new music you have coming out? When is coming out? What is it about?
“I have a song coming out called “ties” and basically it is about everything in the dark coming to light. This song was inspired by a lot of betrayal I’ve experienced and how it molded me. I wish for everything and everyone to show their true colors, there are too many secrets in the world to hide who you truly are.”
