We must start by saying we love the groove of your latest single, "Flattery." What inspired you to take on this groovy and playful single?
Life is too short. Sometimes things don’t work out the way we plan but instead of taking it so heavily, why not take it from a grateful perspective? It’s all happening for a reason. When I wrote this song, I realized how hard it is to plan ahead sometimes. We can’t control where life takes us.
What was your songwriting process like when writing such playful and witty lyricism for "Flattery?" Was it an easy process?
I felt so inspired by this song. I wrote it in a day. It was actually so beautiful the way it flowed. That’s what happens when we truly let go and have fun while we do it. It all came so easy. I was surprised at myself.
Did you work with any producers when navigating the funky and soulful sonic atmosphere within "Flattery?"
Absolutely. I couldn’t have done this alone. JewelCity (@unjewelcity) produced it. Usually, my comfort zone is raspier, more aggressive tones. JewelCity encouraged me to go with the softer and playful feel, which I’m so grateful for. He of course added his magic touch during the mixing/mastering process.
We noticed that you've released a variety of singles over the past year. Are you planning on releasing any EP's or albums in the future?
As of now, I really enjoy releasing singles. All my singles so far have been different styles. It’s more free flow that way, and something to look forward to. Maybe if I release a bunch of singles over time, then I’ll compile them into an album.
What would you like new listeners to know about you and the music that you create?
I write all my music myself, and it’s all based on my life. Sometimes I write music from the perspective of my loved ones. I have a big sense of humor and sometimes incorporate that through puns or witty lyrics. I hope they can relate to my music and enjoy it.
