When did you first realise that you actually wanted to pursue music as a career?

I’ve always played music and been obsessed with it since I was a little girl. I wasn’t raised in a family that pursued anything super creative, so I never considered it as a career. I went into nursing school and randomly decided to release music that ended up doing okay. So basically, I quit school, moved to London, and called my passion my job.

How would you describe your own sound?

Pop on the indie side with cool guitar. Stuff to make you feel good and put you in a vibe.

What’s the most exciting moment in your career so far?

Since I’m so fresh to this, honestly releasing my first single. It felt really cool to know my first song, like a baby to me, was finally flying free. There’s gonna be lots more to come this year.

Who did you listen to growing up?

I phased hard as a kid. Lots of R&B – Neyo, J.T., Musiq Soulchild. Some pop stuff. John Mayer, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, alt-J, etc.

What do you like to do in your downtime?

I love running. I go through phases where I’m running like 15 miles every other day…sorta psycho, but it’s addicting. I can also shop like no other human being.
