Was there something (an experience) or someone in your life that was the "catalyst" for you to start writing music? Tell us about it.
I was always writing short stories and poetry as a kid, but listening to my Dad's old 45s got me into writing songs. I was told he used to play with the Ojays so that's who I listened to the most and the Escorts listening to his favorite music was all I had left of him.
Let's get this out of the way. What is the CRAZIEST thing that has ever happened to you in your music career? Probably the craziest was meeting PNB Rock's manager. It was at the 10th annual Launch Music Conference and I had a mentoring session with Darkchild A&R Terry Brown and as I was leaving I met MFN Luv, PNB Rock's manager. He gave me some very meaningful no nonsense advice that made me approach things differently when it came to songwriting. Terry did too, but I had to schedule that lol so it was dope to get a second mentoring session on the fly.
What has been the high point of your music path?
Honestly impressing the producers. I know that doesn't seem like a huge goal but if you understand how important their work is to them, then you understand that it is a HUGE deal for them to like what you did to their instrumental.
So, how do you approach songwriting or what is your creative process like?
I hate to sound weird but the beat tells me what to say, and then I get in the studio and fight with my engineer for hours until it sounds on the mic like it did in my head lol.
What do you see as the biggest challenge facing Indie Artists today? Or, if you could ask the music industry to change one thing, what would it be?
I think the plight of the female artist is that we're shamed if we don't have our craft perfected....and if we do, then we're shamed for not being 24 with a stripper's body by the time we have perfected it. I would ask the industry to stop the ageism. It's illegal in every other line of work for a reason
If you could share the stage with one other artist or band, who would it be and why?
Logic, because he's my son's favorite artist and I love the song city of stars
What are your rehearsals generally like? Or, how do you prepare for a live show?
I don't prepare lol my stage presence sucks and there's not to much I have been doing to fix that honestly. I am good songwriter but I could use help and training in other areas.
Pick one song that was your greatest challenge to write. Tell us about it!
One of my favorite songs is chetty's lulaby. I wrote a ballad for my son and couldn't get through from lumps in my throat. I powered through but I never released it. It's for his ears only.
What's coming up in the future?
Hopefully I will be able to write a hit for a major a celebrity. They can have the spotlight, I just want to write.
