Your music blends elements of pop, rock, and electronic genres. How did you develop this unique sound, and what influences have shaped your musical style?
I have always found comfort and solace in creating. I have had an immense passion for music and writing for as long as I can remember, and I am so grateful to be able to make music every day. One of the great things about music is you really can take your time curating your sound, finding what resonates with the song on a deeper level. While my sound has developed and changed throughout the years, one thing that has stayed the same is that music has been a constant in my life, there for me to turn to when I need to understand life’s complexities. Regardless of how my sound changes through the years, I hope to inspire people in the way that music has inspired me to chase my dreams.
As I continue to grow as an artist, the music might change, but the heart of it will forever remain the same. As in all my music, I want to portray the feeling of belonging to my listeners. I want a listener to stumble across this song and feel heard.
Can you tell us the story behind your recent release I Hate The Space?
I’m so happy that “i hate the space” is finally out in the world. The song reflects on how difficult it is to face the present after all your plans have been said and done. It’s about the pressure we put on ourselves to have everything figured out and how difficult it can be to face reality when things don’t go as planned. Finding yourself alone in your thoughts with the pressures of an unknown future, it’s easier to immerse yourself in trite distractions so you don’t have to face reality.
It’s easy to feel obligated to have everything together. Getting a minute to yourself means being alone with your thoughts, and that means facing the difficulties and realness that comes with it. The easy way out? Making plans 24/7 so you don’t have to face reality.
