Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’m a musician from Toronto, Canada. I’m loud, I’m weird, and I’ve wanted to be centre stage since I was in diapers.
How did you get your start in music?
I come from a very musical family. My mother is a piano teacher and taught me how to play and read music. My Father is in a band, and I’ve spent pretty much every summer of my life watching him play guitar and sing songs. Music runs in my blood! I started singing and writing at five years old and I’ve never stopped.
How would you describe your musical style?
I’m very much electro-pop, with a style similar to Lorde and Kate Bush. My voice has been described as “sickly sweet” with some added punk grit, influenced by Green Day and Fall Out Boy.
How have you evolved since your debut single in, “A Day Off” in 2018?
My style has become more singular. When I made “A Day Off” I was all over the place. I was trying so hard to impress that I think I lost my focus. Since then, I’ve become more confident in my writing and have improved control of my voice. I’ve learned to pull back on the reigns, and that less is more.
What can you tell us about your latest single, “Bad Sign”?
I originally wrote it for my younger sister in the midst of helping her navigate a really bad relationship. “Bad Sign” is a story about manipulation, guilt, and finding the strength to escape abuse. I wanted to send a message that it’s okay to cut toxic people out of your life.
What’s next for your career?
I’ll be releasing lots of new music in the coming months! I’m focused on expanding my fan base, building my discography, and I’m also planning a live tour with some of my favourite local artists in the near future.
What advice would you have for aspiring singers/songwriters?
The music industry isn’t always sunshine and daisies. You need tough skin and a strong spirit. Work hard, and make sure you keep your head on straight. Never stop creating. And, PLEASE, don’t release anything that’s less than your absolute best.
What’s your life like outside of music?
On the rare occasion I’m not involved in something musical, you can find me in my room dancing in front of the mirror or binge-watching my favourite anime, Naruto. I’m also really into video games and can lose myself in Skyrim for hours. In my free time, I love visiting farmer’s markets, going on walks with my family, and reading fantasy novels about vampires and romance. Edward Cullen always adds a little extra sparkle to my day!
