What is your process in songwriting?
I start by experiencing life and reflecting on things I have gone through. I normally write them down and send them to producers and songwriters. It’s a collaboration of all different people that helps create a great song.
What inspired you to pursue a career in music?
I never intended to pursue music, I studying performing arts at school and my teacher in a class gave no option but to sing, so I got up and sang “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley, from that moment on, I only wanted to sing.
What message do your songs convey?
Every song conveys different messages but all of them relate to the way I feel and things I have experienced from heartbreak to happiness. My single “Step Back” has a reflective message about appreciating the positive people you have in your life.
