What projects can your fans look forward to in 2019?
I’m working on an album! From that album there will be several singles, along with Tour dates and new merch. I can’t wait to share more details soon.
Have you evolved since taking a break from working with your group members Emblem3 and concentrating your energy on solo projects? If so how has your music evolved over the years?
My music goes with me as I grow and go through life’s peaks and valleys. Fans can experience a much more raw and personal side to me than what they experienced with Emblem3’s music.
You cover many different artists on your social media outlets that sound amazing! Are there any artists you would like to collaborate with in 2019?
I’m down to write and collaborate with anyone, but Drake or Post Malone would be especially cool.
Acoustic or Studio?
A lot of sub genres and experimental genres are becoming popular in music as an effect of globalization; would you ever consider curating songs along the same lines?
It’s always fun to experiment. I did an experimental EP called syna.. it’s on spotify. It’s real moody!
If anything, what is inspiring and influencing you at the moment?
Writing and being in the studio keeps me inspired. The fact that I’m going on tour in a few months is really inspiring me to work super hard.. As for musical influences I’m inspired by bazzi, post malone, and swae lee right now.
Describe your general songwriting process; is it something that you have a set routine for or is it "spur of the moment”?
It’s different depending on who I’m writing with, but I’m most happy when a producer builds a beat around me writing the song. I like to get a rough layout of the music and then freestyle lyrics and melodies over and over until all the parts are there.
Are there any other projects that you are working on outside of music?
I am really focused on my music right now but I’ve always been interested in acting.
What is your three essential must haves that you need to have with you daily?
Phone, backpack with my laptop and microphone, and guitar
Where do you see yourself five years from now?
writing, recording, rehearsing, releasing, touring
