Go into detail on why you decide to choose music as a career.

I would love to think that I chose music, but music chose me. Throughout my life I’ve tried to do other things but those things just made me realize that music is what I was supposed to be doing. I feel like you always know deep down inside what your calling is, and if I neglected it any longer I would live a life of torment. I saw how people reacted to my singing, and realized that if I put the right message behind it, I could truly make an impact and save lives, just like music saved my life. I knew that I had to become a musician, which to me is LOVE, and so I went on a journey of self-discovery, and took time to hone my skills so that I could be the person I needed to be in order for the world to receive my vibrations.

Brief us the feedback you are getting from fans concerning your music.

I’m getting the best reactions I could possibly receive as an unknown artist. They’re feeling, which is what I’ve set out to do from the beginning, to make people feel and be moved. People tell me that they want to be a better person after listening to my music and so I think I’m on my way to accomplishing my goals.

Discuss the relevance of social networking to music.

I’m horrible with social networking because I’m a shy person. It doesn’t seem so because I’m outgoing but I’m actually an introvert deep down. In this day and age we are more connected than ever, people have more opportunities to discover and to share their stories with the world, and it’s really nice to be able to keep track of what’s going on and to feel closer to the humans that are affected by your sounds.

Brief us about the recording of this song.

I moved to LA Jan /16 /2017, two days later I met up with Andrew Rose, who my manager put me with. We started talking about our lives, where we came from, where we want to go and family. Andy started playing around on the piano and I sat next to him and we explored different sounds, when he started playing this melody that I just started humming to and by the end of the day we had “Leave”.

Tell us the story behind the song.

The song came from a need to grow and move on, a lot of times we stay in situations because we don’t want to hurt others. But you end up hurting yourself and other people more by staying. Two days prior to recording “Leave”, I left everything in New York to pursue my dreams, I know the path I chose didn’t sit well with everyone, and so making this song helped me to relieve the dissonance I was dealing with and to help others let go.

State your area of specialization in music.

Vocal architecture.

Tell us how long it takes to finish a song from the start.

Sometimes 5 hours sometimes weeks, it depends.

Go into detail on how you develop your lyrics and melody.

I think lyrics should always come from the heart; it doesn’t necessarily have to be personal to you. Artists are empathy and I feel we are able to express any situation through our mediums. I always try to be as real as possible and have a message when writing. I just think to myself how would I say this, what emotion is behind this word, what does it mean to me. Sometimes the melody comes first then the lyrics follow or vice versa. Melodies can come to you at any time and if you don’t catch it sometimes it can be lost. I usually record them on my phone when it comes and try to feel what that melody is trying to say to me, because melodies are lyrics. I try to make sure that at the end of a song I left no stone left unturned, and to let the song flow as naturally as possible.

It’s LOVE.

It’s vibrations, frequency, and energy. Basically it’s the Universe.

Discuss your rehearsal.

Rehearsing for me is trying over and over again to hack the flow state, and finding the quickest way to get there. Once I’m there I blackout so I don’t really remember.

Violin

Guitar

Sitar

Describe the chemistry between you and your fans during a live performance.

In the past I was terrified of live performances, but all of that changed when I realized I wasn’t being judged on stage, and that the people are there because they want to be there and they want to hear the music raw, so I try to tap into the energy of the room and be as true to the song as possible.

.

Discuss your personality in full details.

I’m a well scented quirky onion, I make people cry voluntarily but at the end it’s tasty and I have many layers.

I trained with Dr. Robert Brewster for a bit, he trained Phylis Hyman and hung out with legends such as Marian Anderson, beside that I’m self-taught. He taught me technique and the old school way of singing.

Share your memorable experiences with us.

One of my fondest memories recently was spending two weeks in the jungle, in Peru. It was voluntary madness but I knew that if I made it those two weeks I could do anything in life. I also got to hang out with the Shapibo people and learned about plant medicines, meditated, read, and be in my rawest form. It was profound.

Tell us the good and bad side of mankind you know.

I think that the way the world is right now is not the way it has to be. A lot of things that start out good can turn bad in the wrong hands, like the science behind nuclear weapons. I believe in humanity and I think that we need to reconnect with the deepest part of ourselves and remember that we are LOVE; we came from it and will go back to it. We are all capable of being and doing the best and worst things in life, but our ability to love is what can guide us to better understanding our purpose. Like Tesla said “if you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration”.
