Tell us about your music career, band name, musical background, experience and skills.

I have been singing and dancing my whole life! At 8 years old I got my first lead part in a musical theatre production of “Gypsy”. I played the part of Baby June and that was where I got my first taste of the stage! I knew that was what I wanted to do ever since. Throughout grade school and high school I was mainly focused on dance; I didn’t start seriously pursuing a music career until about 5 years ago. Prior to that I was working as a professional dancer in Los Angeles and graduated from Loyola Marymount University with a double major in Dance and Communication Studies. I always knew I wanted to be a singer, but dance had always taken a front seat. It wasn’t until I got to college that I started writing songs and recording them. Some of my dance and acting credits include The Fosters (ABC Family), Game Shakers (Nickelodeon), Castle (ABC), Wicked City (ABC), and Shake it Up! (Disney Channel).

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

My genre of music is urban pop. When my producer Caviar played me this song, I immediately fell in love with it. I have always loved 80’s music and was excited to be doing a remake of a classic. I knew that in combination with my dancing the song was a great match for me and I right away had the vision of what I wanted to do for the music video. Because it had an 80’s influence, I wanted the video to reflect that… thus my hairstyle and “flash dance” type of outfit inspiration. Every time I hear the song I just want to dance and be in my own world, which is what I wanted the video to portray. I always had the vision of dancing in a mirror, which was inspired by the song “music and the mirror” from the musical “A Chorus Line”. I also wanted the video to be really colorful and almost retro- feeling, which is why we used all the different neon lights.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.

Wow, where to even begin! I always say that the music business is a BEAST. It is so tough and you have to love it more than anything to be able to put up with all the ups and downs that come with it. Being an artist is hard because you constantly feel like you are navigating the industry side of music while at the same time trying to remain creative and true to your artistry. This has been one of my greatest struggles as an up and coming artist. Another tough part about the music industry is learning to manage your expectations and not get your hopes up because there are a lot of people that make promises they can’t keep. I’ll be honest, there are some days where I just want to curl up into a ball and quit everything. But then there are those magical moments that fill up your entire being with complete and utter satisfaction. One small thing happens that reminds you why you do what you do. It could be anything as small as someone telling you they are inspired by you… or someone telling you they love your song. As an artist these moments can be far and in between, but when they do happen you want to hold onto that feeling forever! That is what keeps me going.

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.

My producer Caviar and I have been working together for about 6 months. We had a connection right away! We recorded the song at Caviar’s studio in Hollywood. When I record I am in a very focused mental space and can usually finish a whole song in about 4 hours. Caviar introduced me to his friend Optx who shot and directed the music video. I told him my vision for the video and he immediately saw what I was seeing which was amazing. We shot the video in one day at a production studio in LA. The shoot from start to finish took about 8 hours. The tedious part was the editing, which consisted of many hours of Optx and I sitting in the editing room eating candy and trying to stay awake!

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.

I have been in the music industry for about 5 years now. My experience has had many ups and downs but I have learned so much. In the past 5 years I have worked with many different producers and managers all of whom had different working styles. Through all my experiences I have learned a lot of the in and out of the music industry and made a lot of personal connections which has been vital to my career. My future goal is to be able to perform my music world wide and to inspire young women everywhere to fight for their dreams and have confidence in themselves!

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

I am inspired to write off of my own life experiences! It’s so important for my music to be personal to me; otherwise I don’t believe it would come off as genuine.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.

I think that a hit song starts with the vibe of the first writing session! Everything for me starts with a good vibe. If I come to the studio and am not feeling good energy there is no way I will write a good song. A hit song has to be something that can be universally relatable. I think it’s important as an artist to be truthful and vulnerable in your writing because fans are going to connect with not only you as an artist but also you as a person! That is what I believe gets people invested in your artistry and your music and leads to hit records.

Tell us the message you will like to pass to your fans out there.

I want my fans to know that their dreams are valid! I want them to know that they are special and that there is no one else in the world like them. Live in the beautiful truth that you are one of a kind!! I want them to know that they are beautiful and I appreciate every single one of them!!!

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

The best advice I can give to an upcoming artist is to always believe in yourself. On this journey there are going to be so many people with opinions on what you should and shouldn’t do. Don’t let your family, friends, social media or anyone try to tell you that you are not good enough. You have to believe in yourself so much that nothing that anyone says can shake your confidence. Also, keep your blinders on! Don’t compare what you’re doing to what other people are doing. Stay focused, grind everyday, and try to enjoy the journey because your struggle today makes you stronger tomorrow!!

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.

In 2014, I earned my first songwriter credit, co-writing the title track for the Lifetime TV movie Seasons of Love. I am currently working on my debut EP that will be released in 2018!

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.

Usually when I come to the studio I have an idea of the type of record I want to do but sometimes I come in and just have a concept in mind. I will tell the producer I’m working with the type of vibe I’m in on that particular day and sit with them while they create a beat from scratch. There are times where I work with a pre-made beat, but I always prefer to create from scratch. As the producer is working on the beat, I start creating my concepts and lyrics. Once I have some solid concepts down I’ll go into the booth and record my ideas. We’ll listen back, keep what we like, and get rid of what we don’t. From there we just keep building until the song is fully written! I am big on background vocals and harmonies as well so I usually record those last once I have my lead vocal down.

Honestly, my happiest day was the day I shot this music video. I was doing exactly what I love and my best friends were all there with me the whole day! My saddest day was when we had to put down my childhood dog Reggie L.
