Goal in Life – to learn, create, and love
How long in performing arts?
-26 years now.
Who inspired you?
-Everything I experience in my life, people I meet, music I listen to, places I travel.
How do you work on creating your own signature style?
-By staying true to who I am and what I like.
What do you want to convey through your music?
-Depends on the song. I just want to be creative and express myself.
Story behind making of your new track?
-Made this song together with two of my former music students, one is now a hip-hop producer (Poochie Beats), the other (JoJo Reed) has her own indie band. We made it together over the Internet during the coronavirus quarantine. It’s about not letting the stresses and craziness of internet culture, modern life and society get to your peace of mind.
Any interesting trivia about making of song?
-Poochie beats made the electronic percussion, electric piano, string pads, and arpeggiator and sent it to me, I added vocals, synth bass, acoustic drums, and additional synthesizers, sent to JoJo Reed to do background vocals, then I mixed and mastered the song. There is a music video on YouTube which is very light hearted.
People who you would like to thank?
-Poochie Beats and JoJo Reed for working with me on this track.
People who you would like to work with and people you idolize to be like professionally?
-I already have a great network of friends and musicians that I am grateful for and am currently working with. I don’t idolize anyone in particular, but I would love to make a living from creating music.
Where do you see your music 3 years from now?
-Continuing to grow and evolve, just like my life does.
How would you like to stretch your boundaries of genre in future projects?
-Each new album I strive to create new sounds and to try something different. It’s already difficult to keep my music in a particular genre, if you’ve heard some of my catalog of music.
Have you already started work on next project? Anything you want to disclose about it?
-Yes, I always say I’m going to take a break, but I just can’t seem to. I always am inspired to create. Currently working on just a single, collaborating with a few musicians, but it may end up becoming another EP, anything’s possible.
Message for Fans and listeners
-Thanks for listening, I appreciate you taking the time to check out the music I pour my heart into creating.
