Here is our fun interview we did!
When and how did you know that you wanted to pursue music?
Well I have always loved music from a young age and would dream of being in a band. I then joined my first band in 6th grade and was hooked and just didnt stop playing and touring. Before I knew it I was living in LA realizing oh damn I am a full time “artist”
What inspires your sound?
There is a lot of amazing music out there that inspires me, I definetly fall into the category of a old soul and love Al Green, Earth Wind and Fire and Steely Dan to name a few but then there are all these new artist that are interpreting the things I love with today’s technology so I’ll get turned onto a new artist like banks and hear snakeships remix of warm water or hear a Mayer Hawthorne cut and just get all amped up and it inspires me to push my sound.
How do the lyrics to your songs come about?
It may sound cliche but just life…. Some times im driving and hangin on a thought so I start humming and it snowballs…. I also just makes notes of titles or jot down a few lyrics when ever. Sometimes it hits right when I’m about to fall asleep or in the middle of being out.
What is your favorite song to perform live, and why?
Right now its the new single good people for the sole fact its a straight jam
Who would you like to work with in the future?
There are quit a few but to name a few Q-tip, Raphael Saadiq, and I think a real dope collab would be with this band Cherub.
