First off thank you for having me today I really appreciate it! This song is very special to me it brought out a lot of emotions that I never knew I had for myself I never truly loved myself until after I realized I was putting so much love into other people I forgot to love myself in the process.
What musical and non-musical influences do you tend to let speak into the music that you create? Has it always been like this since you’ve begun to create music?
I personally used a lot of Charlie Puth's influence in this song he has always been someone I've looked up to! I usually try to think of a song I really connect to and then try to get inspired by that whether it’s melodically or lyrically!
Did you find that writing and releasing this song helped you with the healing process or mentioned events?
Yes, I did. I have since been able to find the love for myself I always needed and I couldn’t be happier than I am right now!
If your audience could reflect on one message from this song, what would you want it to be?
Self-care life is short and you are important you need to love yourself so you have room to love other people after that!
What's next for you?
