Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I’m a musician born and bred in Johannesburg, South Africa. My genre can be classified as Dream/ Indie Pop. Most of the songs have a Summer Vibe to it which I love. I’m obsessed with my dog, she’s my whole life. I enjoy hiking, going to the beach, adventuring and seeing my friends.

How did you get your start in music?

I’ve always loved music, I’ve been singing and playing instruments my whole life but kind of pushed it aside because I didn’t think I could compete with other artists.

I saw a fortune teller and she said I need to get back into it because that’s what I’m meant to be doing. So here I am!

How would you describe your musical style?

I’d say it’s very much so the type of music you’d listen to on the beach when you want to chill and relax. It could fall under alternative pop, indie pop.

Your track “California Calls” has over 147K plays on Spotify. Did you ever expect it to have the success it has had so quickly?

Definitely not! I’m still surprised it’s climbing and getting plays. It’s the most incredible feeling!

You recently released your latest single, “Thing For You”. What can you tell us about this song?

It’s a very honest cute song, it’s a song everyone can relate to, crushes, fears of rejection. All that fun stuff.

What’s next for your career? Is an EP or full-length album in the cards?

I’d love to get an album going!! For now, I’m working on a few new singles to release. Build a fan base hopefully and then drop an album. I’d love to move to LA with my dog, that’s been the dream.

What advice would you give to aspiring singers/songwriters?

Get your dates right when booking interviews! Don’t give up, it sounds cheesy, but it’s the best advice I can offer. On days when you feel like giving up and you will want to and it will be hard just have faith in yourself and your dream.

What’s your life like outside of music?

Netflix, Yoga, and walking my dog to sum it up! Haha. I live a pretty chilled life, drama free. I teach yoga, I’m a freelance graphic designer and social media manager, I go on adventures with my dog.
