1. How did you get into music? Is there anyone that influenced your decision?

I got into music at age 11. I started writing songs, in the beginning, to see if I could put words together in song format. That came from studying other musicians early on. I grew up listening to Michael Jackson, A Tribe Called Quest, Quincy Jones, Kanye West, and many others so those key people inspired me to want to create my own music. I didn’t really come from a musical family or background, a lot of my work came from trial & error, and teaching myself how to make songs on my own.

2. You have worked collaboratively with multiple artists. Can you give us some perspective on how some of these relationships happened and what you may have learned from others?

They have all came about in interesting ways to say the least. Some from label meetings, networking, social media, or being in the same studios. Throughout the years I’ve learned that relationships are the biggest factor in the business so I’ve always made it a point to keep great relationships with the artist which is why I have had the pleasure of working with so many.

3. Can you describe your process of making and producing music?

It really comes down to Mood & Feeling. If I’m going through something in life I will write about it, but it would have to be the right time to convey it in timing. The same thing with production, so once I have both going it is easy to form the songs. I also below lighting helps as well when creating in which when I am in the studio candles and dim lightning helps me vibe well.

4. Describe how you felt before and after the release of your debut EP “Blu Leisure”.

Going into the project I didn’t know what to expect. All I knew was that I wanted to make something creative, and innovative for the fans who demanded music from me. Once it was released it was an overwhelming experience, because the amount of love, support, and appreciation was amazing. I even had a sold-out release event for the EP the day after it released which was the icing on top.

5. What was it like working with P.M. Dawn on your sophomore EP entitled “Kaleidoscopes”?

Coming into the sophomore project I had a lot of time to think about what would be my follow-up the body of work. I wanted a slightly different sound, but more musical in the sense of production. PM Dawn offered their support and guidance through the process. Truly honored and thankful for them.

6. Do you any long-term goals that you would like to achieve?

I look forward to releasing a debut Album, Starring in Box Office Films, and continuing to grow the brand.
