When did you decide that a career in music was for you?

I grew up surrounded by music, listening and being influenced by many genres. I also began voice and piano lessons at a young age and immediately fell in love with singing. I went on to participate in theater camps, community theater, and (MYO) Metropolitan Youth Orchestra for many years. I introduced myself to every aspect of music and eventually began songwriting around 12 years old. I began recording in studios at 14, and it instantly became my favorite place. It was different from my classical musical background, but I loved creating my own music, crafting my sound, and sharing my messages. I always knew that I wanted a career in music, but I was never set on being a singer-songwriter. I appreciate all aspects of the industry and considered jobs in theater, acting, and A&R or marketing for a record label!

Who are your musical inspirations and why?

My influences are endless, but I most often refer to Amy Winehouse, Miley Cyrus, Madison Beer, Lana Del Rey, Olivia Rodrigo, and Nessa Barrett. I appreciate their musicianship and their ability to convey stories through such varying singer-songwriter styles.

Can you tell me 3 things about yourself that people might not already know?

I’m an only child! I’m a dog mom to my beautiful 8 month old maltipoo, Teddy! And, lastly, I’d love to take up acting again!

What song of yours best describes you and why?

Hmm, this is an interesting question. I would say they all describe me as I write self-reflectively, and each song discusses a personal experience or specific time in my life. I would say 'Back To Hell' was extremely relevant to how I was feeling at the time, but I don’t necessarily feel that isolation now that I did then. All my songs make up my life, but I don’t have a current one that represents how I’m doing now . . . looks like I have to get to writing!

What has been the best gig you have done to date and why?

I honestly haven’t done enough gigs as I had hoped over the years, but I anticipate many gigs in my future, especially this year as I continue to release new music!

If you could perform a gig at any venue where would it be and why?

I would love to perform at Madison Square Garden! As a New Yorker, I grew up attending concerts at this iconic venue, and it would be a dream come true to make it there one day!

What has been your best achievement to date and what would you like to achieve in the future?

I think my greatest achievement thus far has been the success and praise that I received on 'lonely.' The project and the way it was received both exceeded my expectations, and I hope to create more similar projects in the future!

Tell me a story from backstage or after a gig?

I, unfortunately, haven’t had the opportunity to gig as much as I had hoped, but I definitely will be gigging as the year continues.

What do you like best about being a musician and why?

I like being able to create without boundaries. We are all open-minded individuals with new ideas and differing visions, and it’s a privilege to be able to collaborate with such amazing people!

If you were not in the job you are now what would you be doing?

I would love to work at Spotify or a major record label doing A&R or Marketing. I also am very passionate about fashion and could see myself excelling in fashion marketing.

What has been the best gig you have been to as a fan and can you tell us about it?

I honestly can’t choose one. I’ve seen Billie Eilish, Miley Cyrus, and Nessa Barrett, and I cried at all three. The presence of each artist, their individualism, and the overall story of the shows were unbelievable. I appreciate each artist as their own and can’t compare as the concerts had completely different vibes, but all three shows made a huge impact on me as an artist.

What would your ideal festival line up be and why?

Hmm. I listen to everything, so this is super hard. I would have to say some rapper either Kanye or Kendrick. Definitely Tyler the Creator, Lana Del Rey, and Stevie Nicks,

Do you think social media and the internet are a good thing in the music industry?

I think it all depends on how you use it. If you use social media as a platform to create, and share your music and ideas, then I absolutely think it’s a great idea. However, if you’re scrolling endlessly and constantly comparing your life to others, then it can definitely be detrimental to your mental health.

How important do you think your look and image is when it comes to being in the music industry?

Honestly, I think it’s all related. An artist is an individual with creative ideas, and the music coincides with the person. Who you are, how you dress, and how you interact in the world are all connected.

Can you tell us about any tattoos you have and the significance of them to you?

Yes! I have 6 tattoos, and I’m obsessed with all of them. My first tattoo was an 8th note, and I got it done at a five-week summer program at Berklee College of Music! I have a cross behind my neck and my moms birthday in Roman numerals on my right arm. I have 222 and an evil eye on my left arm as I consider myself spiritual, and 222 is my Angel number.

What would you say to someone thinking about becoming a musician and getting into the music industry?

I would say if it’s your passion, then 100% do it! You have to be all in and be confident in your abilities.

If you could collaborate with any other band/singer or musician who would you choose and why?

Hmm. I would probably choose Madison Beer or Nessa Barrett as I feel we have similar stylings and musicianship.

What has the rest of the year got in store for you?

I have quite a few single releases this year and I could not be more excited! I was also discussing the idea of an album for 2025, so stay tuned!!
