Discuss your personality.
I am a very chill person. I approach life upholding the values of love, humility, and respect.
Brief us about you as a musician.
I am an R&B Singer-Songwriter from the Bronx, NY. I have been singing since I was five years old. However, I was an extremely shy kid. I didn’t really start singing consistently in front of people until high school.
Go into details on what has changed in your life for choosing music as a career.
2016 was a pretty rough year for me. I hit some lows and had to face challenges that taught me some tough lessons. When I was lost the only thing that made me feel better was music. I knew I loved music. I loved listening to it and creating it. I just wanted to focus on my passion and happiness so I decided to start working on my project which would eventually become my EP “Delicate”.
Tell us the benefits and drawbacks of choosing music as a career.
The benefit is that I get to do what I love and become better at it day by day. The drawback is the hustle of it. Nothing is guaranteed. You just have to give it your all and have faith in your craft.
Tell us how you will manage fame as an established artist.
The most important thing to me is prioritizing my physical, mental and spiritual health. Even when I become famous I will still take care of myself, making sure I don’t tire myself out or become overwhelmed with the new lifestyle. My anxiety tends to be my worst enemy, so I always make sure to manage that as I continue this career.
Elaborate on the storyline of this song.
“Never Too Much” is a song about being really honest with yourself when you want love. No matter how old you are, when we want love it’s like we turn into a teenager with a crush. We want all of these sweet things we hear about in love songs and romantic movies. My favorite artist is Luther Vandross and one of his popular songs is Never Too Much. In the chorus, I sing “I want that Never Too Much, Never Too Much kind of love” to honor the R&B love songs I grew up listening to. And that’s truly what I want. That old school sweet love.

Let us know the greatest moment of your music career.
The greatest moment in my music career thus far was creating my first music video “Can’t Sleep”. My creative team accomplished so much in a short amount of time. It was a great learning experience. Once we decided to actually make a music video I knew that I wasn’t making music just for fun. I was making it to share with an audience, to entertain, and inspire.
Tell us the highest amount of money you have ever received from your music career and how it happened.
Making money to perform at a live music venue was a highlight because there are many places that don’t pay artists. Although they’re providing a space for exposure, it is still unfortunate how many places do not take care of the artists bringing in the audience and entertainment,
Discuss your experience pertaining to live performances, gigs, shows, and tours.
I love live shows. I’ve been blessed to have amazing musicians as my friends and band members. It is always a positive experience when I am on stage. I love the energy. Although I love singing for people, I love talking to them too. Each show I do has a story that I hope relates to people in the audience.
Discuss your relationship fans.
I talk to them. I keep it real with them. I share my struggles and joy. Every performance I do is dedicated to those who silently suffer. To those that feel misunderstood or alone. I want my music to show people how therapeutic music can be and how we all go through our ups and downs but we still make it through.
Tell us what you will like to change if you have the chance to turn back the hands of time.
I am happy with who I am right now. If things had to go the way they did for me to be as confident and as focused as I am now then I wouldn’t change a thing.
Tell us the most important people that have boosted your music career and how you met them.
My producer Quincy Valentine. He brought my music to life by composing amazing original music to my lyrics. I am grateful for him. He has also shared a lot of music business information with me and I am highly appreciative of that.
Brief us on what you have in mind before considering music as a career.
Music was always in the picture when I thought about other possible careers. The first thing I ever wanted to be was a choreographer. Then after falling for theater in high school I wanted to be a Broadway actress. I still have that dream as well but right now my music is the focus.
Discuss your good and bad experience in life.
My worst experience was a time in my life when I wasn’t listening to my intuition. I was allowing toxic people to get inside of my head. I wasn’t taking care of myself and I ended up being sick often. I was working too much, barely sleeping, and constantly stressed. However, the good experiences started when I began to focus on self-love. I surrounded myself with family and friends. I traveled and really took time to figure out why I was so hard on myself. I learned to let go of pain from the past and enjoy the present.
Name the artists that have influenced the world.
Luther Vandross definitely influenced my world. Other artists who have influenced the world include Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Prince, Whitney Houston, Mary J. Blige, Elton John, David Bowie, Jay-Z, Motown artists, and plenty more. Music has an inexplicable power that travels through generations. There are definitely more artists to list but these artists influenced the masses.
Tell us about your moment of rejection as a musician and how you are able to cope and move on.
Not everyone is going to love your sound. I’ve had music reviewers that didn’t like certain elements of my music. At first, it’s bittersweet but I cope by realizing that there are people who love my music. I have to focus on that. I have to focus on constantly improving as an artist and taking constructive criticism as a tool that will make me better.
Tell us the most negative comment you have ever received about your music.
Someone told me my voice was off-key an entire song which I completely disagreed with. There are probably the worst things people will say but all in all I brush off any negative comment thrown my way.
Tell us how to become a famous artist.
Work hard, network, study, research and don’t just look at your craft as your passion but also as your business.
Tell us how you plan to make an impact on society.
In addition to performing, I want to collaborate with artists to create positive change. I want to bring creatives together, forming a community to help people. None of this will happen in a finger snap. I’ll trust the process and continue to work hard to accomplish all of these goals.
Elaborate on the recording process of this song.
I originally wrote this song with only two verses. When we went to the studio I created a bridge that ended up really adding a hip hop flow to the song. We recorded it quickly since I already knew what ad-libs I wanted on the song. It was a constant hit. The song is currently a fan favorite.
