“My mission statement is just to be myself I'm not tryna chase any sound or be someone I'm, not I make the music I want and based on how I feel. I make music for all the kids that have a dream but then have someone ruin it with words and negativity cause I've been there having family and friends even teachers tell me that I was wasting my time or if I had a plan b cause if you put the work in and have faith anything can happen. I'm from a small town in Calgary Alberta and I was able to get my song in a multi-million platform game.”
