How do you usually write the lyrics of your songs?

I’m constantly thinking of things that are close to my heart and experiences that I go through, I need to express myself through my songs.  I sing the melody to the instrumental first and then I lay down lyrics that fit within that.

In your opinion, what is the most important thing in songwriting? 

I think just expressing yourself and being as authentic and open as possible.

Are you ever scared of revealing aspects of your personal life/experience to strangers through your music?

Yes. I’m a very introverted person to begin with even with the closest people around me, so expressing that level of emotion in a song leaves me feeling vulnerable. But I put that aside for the sake of my music.

What is the best lyric that you ever wrote (the most meaningful for you)?

I just feel this pain, the times I hear your name” It’s from a song not released yet but that always hit me a certain way…

What inspired “Nobody”, your latest single?

I didn’t write the song, but the production was something I was really involved in. The tension in the instrumental was a reflection of the tension I felt in my relationship.

Do you remember the day you wrote “Fast Car”?

All I remember from when I wrote ‘Fast Car’ was when I made the first version of ‘Fast Car.’ I actually wrote something completely different, but wasn’t nearly as good. I sent it to Cxstle Cvstle who was on the song. He told me it was trash and then I came back and wrote the original version, I came back hard.

Are you working on new songs? Maybe a new EP/album soon?

During the process of writing ‘Nobody‘ I spent the time writing about 20 other songs during a year span. I’ll be dropping singles throughout the year.

What is the best suggestion your producer gave you?

Telling me to trust the process in production, as I would always want to make minor changes to things early.

What are your plans for 2019?

Put out new songs, touring live shows, I just want to get my message out there through my Music.
