Of course! I just released my album, Red Hot, yesterday! It’s been very exciting!! I definitely believe artists being true to themselves, and I think my album encompasses that. I like to explore all different avenues of genre of music!

Not as of yet but I have to make that move. It just adds respect and pays homage to the classic way of making music. You will definitely hear my album on vinyl soon.

Awesome! Putting my music on vinyl was important for me because it brought the music to life visually, and it just sounds so great. The fact that you can hold the music in your hand is so authentic!

In terms of record store day, I’m gonna go out and buy some vinyl today!! Always loved walking into a record store and not exactly knowing what you’re looking for. And then finding something awesome!! I just dropped some of my vinyl off at Freakbeat records here in LA. Super exciting!

Well I wrote the lyrics and music to these songs a while ago, back when I was 16 years old. I recorded them as demos in my little home studio and then wanted to take them to the next level. I coproduced the record with Tyler bates and recorded it over a few months span. The recording was finished last June!

Awesome! For me, I like to experience and write music in all different types of genres, while still keeping my same artistic voice! I usually like to write about life experiences - lyrics and music that connect with others!

Although you can’t go wrong with amoeba here in LA since it’s massive and there’s so much awesome stuff to buy, I really like Freakbeat Records. They have a lot of authentic old vinyl - a lot of archives that you wouldn’t normally find! A lot of jazz stuff that I love.

Because Sinatra was the example of Calm intensity and he was respected by all no matter what walk of life.

Well Soul and rnb music has been constantly moving in different directions. What I bring to the table is feeling. The emotion we get when we experience something that changes are live forever. That goose bumps and hair standing up on your arm type feelings.

And if it wasn’t all different types of music we would never see the greatness in all these styles of music.
