How do you usually write the lyrics of your songs?
I always start with the music first. I collaborate with other people to create really cool beats, then I let the music inspire my lyrics. I try to make sure my lyrics are relatable, but still based on my own experience.
In your opinion, what is the most important thing in songwriting?
It’s important to make sure you’re singing about what you believe in and stay true to yourself.
Are you ever scared of revealing aspects of your personal life/experience to strangers through your music?
Of course! Writing songs about yourself is a very exposing process and my music is a clear insight into my feelings. It is really hard knowing that people will know my personal life, but at the end of the day I put my life into my songs because creating art that makes people happy is the best feeling.
What inspired “Headphones,” your latest song?
“Headphones” was the first song I ever wrote. I wanted it to be super fun and uplifting, because there aren’t enough happy songs out today. I think the song is super relatable and that helps make it more enjoyable.
Are you currently working on a release of new songs? Maybe an EP?
I am currently working on an EP, but I don’t want to spoil it for you.
What are your plans for the few remaining months of 2019?
I’m preparing myself for my senior year of High School and working hard on new music for my EP.
