My tip to others starting like me is to build your connections and relationships in the music industry. It takes years. I’ve been writing and recording since freshman year and I’m going into college releasing my first album.
Tell us about yourself and what you do
I am an 18 year old singer songwriter. I was born and raised singing in church. My mother and aunt were the children’s choir teacher and director in the church, and I used to hate singing in front of the congregation. My entire family sings, that’s all they do at holiday get togetherness and events.
What made you become an artist?
I first realized I wanted to be a music artist and writer when I was a freshman in high school. I was inspired by my mom. She had a very strong passion for music and Modeling. I actually started out modeling first and the singing just came randomly. I didn’t really plan on falling in love with music… It just happened.
So this newest EP “Legacy of an Empress”, how did it come about? Was it a random thought, or something you’ve been working on for a while?
My new EP is basically lots of feelings from my highschool situations and relationships that I went through. It wasn’t random, but it wasn’t planned out very perfectly. I just felt the time was right.
Where did the inspiration for the lyrics come from?
My lyrics were inspired by advice I was given when I was going through certain things and how I was feeling at the time.
I’m sure you’ve come across other artists & producers who ask for collabs. What certain trait/element that draws you to work with someone or turn them away? Why?
Things I look for when collaborating with someone else is their flow, and word choice. I love smart artists who use new, catchy phrases no one has yet heard of. I love producers who use different sounds of ambience and bass! I would most likely turn someone away if their verse doesn’t make sense to me or if I feel like they are just trying to be like another someone else who has already made it… Just be You.
Of all the things in the world to choose from, why is music your passion?
Music is my passion because I know it will always Loves me back. You don’t have to have big fancy equipment. You could posses only a kitchen pot (drum) a stick, phone recorder, and your voice and you could end up having the rough draft of a huge hit on your hands.
What is your greatest achievement so far?
My greatest achievement so far is this EP album. It’s the biggest step I’ve taking taken to reach my final goals in the music industry.
What’s next? What now?
My next goal is to become well known in the industry, learn more about the business side and get connected!
