Hi Aries! Thank you for chatting with me today!
Thank you for having me!
I know you are gearing up for a release in April! Congrats! Is there anything you want readers to know about it?
Thank you so much! I am super excited about the release of my first EP, called Sunshine! I wrote these songs in 2020 during some difficult times, but during those times I was really focused on reinvesting in myself and my mental health and well-being. The result was a collection of songs that I hope brings light and inspiration. I hope it reminds people that we are never alone and that there is beauty to be found all around us.
How do you make sure your music is on-brand for yourself?
I am honestly very authentic in my art. Everything that I write comes straight from my heart, my own life experiences, and divine inspiration. When I am creating I don't think too much about branding- I just create what comes to me. Then once I have the songs finished I go back and find a way to brand everything and get my message across in a way that makes sense. I guess the best way to sum up my brand is authenticity haha! I am just myself and sometimes I show different sides of myself. But some things are always constants like spirituality and my connection to plants and animals.
If you could describe your art in one word, what would it be?
Oh man that's a hard question! I guess if I had to pick one word I would say Joy. To me, joy doesn't always mean happiness. But making music brings me genuine joy no matter what the subject matter and I think that shines through.
What is your creative process like?
It really depends on the song and who I am working with, but my favorite way to write is alone out in nature. I pray before every time that I write and ask God to speak through me and my pen, and the melodies and harmonies I create. Sometimes I write just based on my own feelings. Sometimes I take a partly-finished song to my producer and we'll create something around it and other times I'll write to one of his beats. The process is a little different for each song.
Are there any surreal moments that have happened in your career thus far
Honestly the whole thing is surreal! I have always wanted to make music my career but I think a part of me always doubted that I could really do it. It is surreal and amazing to see the fruits of my efforts, and to have people really care about and invest in my art. I am so grateful.
What is your favorite thing about being an artist?
I think my favorite thing is how dynamic of a career it is. I get to wear so many different hats and you never stop learning. It can be challenging, but I love a challenge!
