Remember that track by The Chainsmokers called, yeah you guessed it Roses. Well the lovely leading lady on the track is also a fantastic artist in her own right.
Her soulful voice is Amy Winehouse meets Adele, and her Philly badass-ness shows. Simply put, she’s dope. And she sat down with us for a special interview. Check it out below:
You’re absolutely killing it, tell us, how do you stay so grounded?
I still live in Philly, so it’s easy for me to escape the LA high life with my hometown friends and family. They certainly keep me humble, haha.
Re this quote on being famous – “Everyone is famous in their own way through the people you surround yourself with, because their love and attention will always make you feel like you’re in the limelight.” … who do you surround yourself with?
My dogs, my boyfriend, my friends, my family. All these people have constantly made sure I was secure in who I am. They make me feel amazing for being me.
What’s next for you?
A music video release! Lots of collabs, and more touring & solo music.
The place you’d absolutely love to play at?
My hometown arena – Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia
Tear (thinks to self *how are you so perfect*). What’s the hardest thing about being an artist?
It’s easy to compare myself to others. I guess it’s a natural human thing, but in this industry, it seems to happen a lot more often.
Whats the most rewarding thing about being an artist?
There are so many things, but especially being able to create music everyday & having listeners to support me and pick me up when I’m down.
Advice for up and coming artists?
Learn how to do it all yourself! There’s nothing more empowering than walking into the studio knowing how to work it.
What are you listening to right now?
I kind of just discovered the Harry Styles solo record, so I’ve had that on repeat for quite some time. I’m also loving LÉON.
Hell yeah! So, I just listened to this podcast with Brian May and before Queen he was getting his PhD in astrophysics … If you weren’t making music what would you be doing?
I was going to school for nursing and had aspired to be a forensic nurse. So I think I’d be that!
