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

Music is a sort of vent for me. It's a good way to relieve stress and anxiety, just as much as it is fun and mood heightening! Music has always been my fallback, my pick-me-up and my best friend.

What is your music dream?

My dream is to one day be famous with loving and adoring fans, but I've always had my head a bit too far up in the clouds.

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

Discrimination. Discrimination is a huge problem, including racism, religious hate, homo/transphobia, etc. If I could change the world, I would start with the hatred.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

P!nk - Perfect. I remember my mother and aunt would sing the song together once it got dark, sitting in the sand of my grandmothers lake house beach. After my aunt passed, it's been a sort of nostalgic bittersweet memory.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Glass Animals, Arctic Monkeys, Gorillaz- I'm noticing a pattern here- Icon for Hire, Billie Eilish, Elliot Lee, NDAD/Lauren Bousfield, and a few more in similar genres.

What inspires you to make music?

Many things, but the most important one is myself. I make music for myself, not my siblings or coworkers, myself. I enjoy showing it to others, but when it comes to the process of making it, my first priority is "does playing this make me feel good?"

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

It's okay to be yourself. You'll get through this. If you're determined to get something, who's going to stop you from getting it? You're powerful. I'm powerful. It get's better and it get's worse but no matter what it will be okay.

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

When i'm playing, i admittedly get a little jittery before hand, but once I start playing, I have the time of my life! I've never played at a gig, but I have played for school talent shows and such.
