Congratulations on your most recent single, “Choose to Love.” What moment or story inspired the concept of this single?

Thank you so much! And I wrote this song about my 3-year relationship with my girlfriend. It’s inspired by our high & low moments and everything in-between. What message are you hoping that your audience takes away from this song?


I hope they take that being an old fashioned lover or a hopeless romantic is still ok nowadays. It may not be popular with our app using hook up culture. But it definitely still exists. So definitely don’t give up or settle for a love you don’t really want because that specific kind of love you want and deserve is out there and when you find it it’s one of the best feelings in the world! We can definitely hear your musical influences speak into the music that you create. Has this always been the sound that you have had?


I think so, I’ve always had a love for R&B/soul music. I feel my sound will always stem from R&B but I love to create and experiment with other Genres. A lot of my new projects will have a mix of R&B, Pop, Hip-hop & Alternative. When creating heartfelt ballads such as, “Choose to Love,” does your creative process differ from other songs that you may have released?


Yes! I knew this song would be different after writing the first 2 lines. It’s personal but truly special to me because I definitely took a more direct approach in writing and when I played it for my girlfriend she cried and told me “this is now my new favorite song of yours” What would you like new listeners to know about you and the music that you create?


I want them to know that the music I make is meant for them to feel something! That’s my main goal for every song I make. To find the soul in it and relatability so it can touch others!
