.

.

.

Go into detail about your opinion on religion and politics.

I’m not particularly religious and let’s just say I’m proud to be Canadian.

.

.

.

Elaborate on how you think your music is inspiring your fans. 

I like to think my music describes something about myself that others could relate to. The music that has meant the most to me has made me feel something I don’t necessarily understand, and that’s something I aim to do.

.

.

.

Explain the changes you have observed so far in the music industry. 

The music industry used to function under the assumption that people would buy the records they love. This isn’t the case anymore. Streaming has taken over which makes it hard for artists to make money through record sales. There are obvious benefits to streaming music including exposure, playlisting etc… but the industry has to lean towards a method that pays artists and songwriters fairly for their work.

.

.

.

State the artists you cherish most and your reason. 

Some of my favourite artists include SZA, Flume, Drake and Medasin. I love Flume and Medasin’s production. I think SZA’s sound is unique and her record was incredible. I’ve been listening to Drake since I was young and I’m Canadian.

Elaborate on how you develop your lyrics. 

Whenever I have an idea for a song I write it in the notes of my phone. I revisit my ideas later and try to develop them. Honestly the process for every song is different.

.

Tell us if you enjoy collaborating with other artists or just singing as a solo artist.

I like collaborating.

.

.

.

Brief us your opinion on making music that makes people to dance or making the kind of music with genuine message that inspires them.

I think using music as a way to inspire others is admirable. Making people dance is sweet and everyone loves music that makes them happy.

.

.

.

Tell us what you know about copyright.

I know that artists have a right to their work and stealing other people’s work is lame.

.

.

.

Discuss the impact of a Performing Rights Organization. 

Performing rights organizations are responsible for royalty collection for copyright owners when their music is used in public. They insure that copyright holders are paid for the use of their product.

.

.

.

Elaborate on how you develop your melody and instrumentation.

Every song is different but I usually start with rhythm and layer in instruments. I come up with some sort of chord progression on the piano and go from there.

.

.

.

Go into detail on the recording process of this song. 

I produced the beat in Ableton and then recorded my vocals in my room. I recorded DC.’s vocals at his in-house studio. My best friend Andrew Machum mixed and mastered it.

I don’t perform much. I DJ but I’m not that crazy about singing, I’d rather DJ.

I think I’m a good musician but I have a lot to learn.
