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

Music gives me strength and confidence to grow as a person and also of course as an artist. You have to give yourself some life experience to write about something in a song. That's what I do. I write down in a journal every day and I take my feelings out of the journal and turn it into a song.

What is your music dream?

My music dream is to get signed to a record label and do what I love most. I learn every day from my producer about record labels because he was once signed to one back in 2008. Now, I feel connected and inspired from him because he gets me going and he motivates me. I want to be able to win a grammy and make my family proud of me.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

If I could change the world it would be with my music because being different makes me unique and beautiful inside and out. I'm confident enough to change the world with my own music.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Bye Bye Bye by NSYNC

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

My favorite musical artist of all time is Demi Lovato. Number one chick and singer in the music industry these days. She has the power and strength to show her talent and she is incredibly beautiful!

What inspires you to make music?

What inspires me to make music is my past, because that's all I write about... I want to be able to write about my past because it's empowering and I learn to evolve and grow from the past. I learn my life lessons and experience. I want to evolve and grow as a person and as an artist. Doing what I love means so much to me and I'm very passionate about it.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Don't give up... because once you don't do it, you lose it. You want to keep striving for success and greatness. Not worrying about the fame too much, but worrying about how successful you are and happy you are, you are talented and beautiful. You will strive for happiness and success., you will blow the world's mind with your music and talents.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Sometimes I feel anxious and nervous, but mostly excited. Nowadays, I feel confident because I know I have improved vocally and musically. I open up about my struggles and pain, I was struggling so much when I was younger about performing, but now I feel more confident to be myself around my audience and fans.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

My reality as a musician is performing live, growing fan base, audience and evolving, growing as an artist. It's important to evolve and grow because it helps you find inspiration and emotions to write about tin a song.

What do you think of Drooble?

I love it so far, I think it's cool to connect with record labels, A&R reps and producers who are looking for talent.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

What frustrates me most is growing fan base. I'm just starting out as a professional musician, I started recording about a year and a half ago in Syosset, NY. It's hard for me because I want to get signed to the biggest record labels out there.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Yes, 100%! I love my fans and the local scene. I show them lots of love and I show them acceptance, not judging others, I love my fans 100,000%! My fans are my everything and my life. I would do anything for my fans.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

I think it should not be about the following anymore for record labels. It should be about how passionate the artist is, how passionate and confident they are in their music. I think it's kind of silly why record labels worry about the artists' following on social media. Nowadays in the music industry, the record labels worry about how many followers an artist has on their profile page. I want that to change and I can't really make that happen foe record labels - but like I said, I feel like they should worry about the artists' music and how passionate they are about their music.
