Congratulations on the release of your latest single, “You And I.” Could you please take us into what this song means to you?
Thank you so much! I'm very excited about this release and so happy to share it with everyone. This release means a lot to me because it takes me back to the first time I laid eyes on my now fiancée and all those feelings I had that day. The lyrics get straight to the point and I'm sure we can all agree when we first see the love of our lives we get butterflies and the excitement is out of this world. Love is a powerful thing that I hope most can experience in their lives. At the same time Ian Charlie and I were writing this song, he was having some chemical imbalances for someone as well, and having both of us in the studio with the same headspace really drove us to finish this track in only three sessions!
What went into the creative process as you brought, “You And I,” to life?
What started this creative process was first before every session having an hour chat about our daily lives, the ups and downs and just talking everything out and getting one another's opinions on things we were going through. We always try to see the bigger picture for one another in times we don't. After our talk we then decided "wow, we are in love!" and so then the writing began, and every time I put the pen to paper all I could think about was happiness and positivity. I know that may sound silly, but how could you not when love is in the air!? After singing my lyrics back to Ian, he couldn't help but agree, which then caused us to create this love story in the song.
From the start of your musical journey to now, what has been the best piece of advice that you have received?
The best piece of advice I have received is "put on your big girl panties and deal with it," "eliminate all the toxic people around you," and "never give up!" These three quotes really helped me have the drive and determination that I have today at 29 years old. Saying them to myself or having them in the back of my mind always pick me up when I'm down or can't see how much my doors have opened. It's tough for a musician and even more so in today's world. We are so hard on ourselves and at times it makes us weak because when you are weak-minded you allow the wrong people into your life or you quit. These quotes are at times a hard pill to swallow but that's life and you can't be pushed to the ground by life or the weak, you must keep walking with your head up and keep pushing for your dreams and goals.
What musical and non-musical inspirations do you allow to speak into the music that you create?
I would have to say everything that has happened in the last four years which is portrayed in my single "Freedom." That song was inspired and created to give some a bit of hope and to bring us together. My single "Calling" was inspired by someone who couldn't pick up the phone when I needed them to hurry and give me an answer. My single "You Think You Know" was inspired by arguing with someone who continuously thought they were always right when they are not. Etc. Every song is inspired by something non-musical that I have encountered with someone or witnessed. I never wanted to copy and paste something I've heard before on a record, I wanted to make my own sound, my own music, with my own experiences.
What would you like listeners to know about you and your music?
I would like my listeners to know that when I write a song, it isn't random. There is always a deeper meaning and I do want to spread more positivity in this world and I really hope that after listening you feel a sense of relief for at least three mins. My music isn't meant to put you down or make you sad, my music is my own sound and I refuse to try to do what others are doing. I may take bits and pieces of ideas from those I admire and look up to, but just like them, they created their own sounds and so will I. I want my music to make you zone out and think back to a time where you can relate or a time that made you happy. If I was inspired to write something it always comes from a good heart and at the end of the day, that's what I would like for everyone else to have.
