What is music to you? What does it give you?

Although I've been singing most of my life, I'm only recently beginning to understand the theraputic side of writing and singing my creations. The most difficult times of my life have birthed my best songs. I work hard to make sure these songs speak my truth so that the listener can feel that.

What is your music dream?

My music dream would probably be to finally sing and perform my music all over the world for once instead of backing other artists. My ultimate goal is to move everyone who hears my music and lyrics to brighter days.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Wow! There are so many songs that I remember loving as a child. I was a huge Prince fan from like 10 years old and I was intensely transfixed on his stage performances. However, I remember falling in love with "Human Nature" by Michael Jackson. I remember laying on my living room floor playing it over and over. The peace I felt from that song still resonates with me today.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Prince, Mint Condition, Snarky Puppy, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Raphael Saadiq, Lauryn Hill

What inspires you to make music?

Music is in my blood so I am constantly hearing melodies and rhythms. Meeting new people, visiting new lands, falling in an out of love are all aspects of life that inspire my writing.
