Congratulations on the release of your latest single, “BIG Chill.” Could you please take us into the depths of what the creative process looked like when bringing this song to life?

Last summer I was super inspired and writing a bunch of songs. I always wanted a bass/drum groove similar to Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean". SO I kind of modeled the vibe around that type of feel. I wrote the bass line and put it on loop. The lyrics feel in place pretty much on the spot. I did go back and rewrite some of the verses.

As the artist who crafted this masterpiece, what does this song mean to you?

First Off, thanks for calling it a masterpiece :) THis song is fun. I love the imagery and feels. Hendrix guitar solo, and funk guitars. I was proud that I could blend a lot of influences into this one (Hendrix, Muse, Michael Jackson, Queen) Lyrically, it's about finding your zone through a little cannabis, and just relaxing in the space with a smile. Just Chillin.

What are you hoping that your listeners take away from this song in terms of themes and messages emitted?

I like to keep it open to interpretation. But overall I hope they feel uplifted, and inspired!

How does “BIG Chill” hold up to other songs in your music catalog?

This is different. IT breaks away from the California dance-pop, and into alt-rock a little. I like to dabble around. But I think all my songs have a vibe that shares the same nucleus.

What has been keeping you inspired to create music?

I just always yearn to write/record awesome poppy songs. I have a lot to say and am always looking for new and exciting ways to express myself in music. I am always listening to music and records. I listen to an eclectic mix of music and drawing inspiration from one musical place or another. Maybe just a little guitar hook or drum fill of some indie artist on Spotify could inspire a song for me.
