How did you first get involved in music?
I used to dance to music playing in my head growing up, that's how I first got involved in music. My cousins used to tease me about it but here I am and now everyone can hear the music I was hearing for so long. My first released single called 'Kissing You' was released on Global Soul Music with Ian Friday & from there I've released singles just about every year with various producers worldwide.
Who would you say are you biggest musical inspirations?
Some of my inspirations include Aaliyah, Marvin Gaye, & Sade. I learned from Aaliyah that some of us are crooners, from Marvin Gaye that pain a lot of the time is the motivation but if you give it up & let it heal you, great music will materialize, and from Sade that timeless music trumps any ephemeral sensation.
What would you say have been some of the biggest moments of your career?
I would've never anticipated all the wonderful experiences in music as I've been afforded. Some highlights would include singing background for Teedra Moses for Essence Music Festival 2012, being in the top 3 Independent Artists, voted for by the people to perform at ONE Music Festival in Atlanta, GA. 2013, & my 1st overseas performance in Beirut, Lebanon at the No. 1 Nightclub in the Middle East.
How did you get involved with Djeff and creating 'Alright'?
Djeff and I met in Miami at what I believe was the first year of Winter Music Conference for both of us. Fresh faces stand out I suppose, and that gave us a commonplace with one another. So this collaboration was inevitable and right on time!
What three words would you use to describe the track?
Hopeful. Healing. Honest.
Lastly, what more can people expect from you in the upcoming months?
In the future people can expect more of the GLAMSOUL Sound, fusing the House vibration with all that is me, musically & creatively. Also, the release of my EP entitled 'Ginger,' & the 1st single off of that EP '86,' this Spring.
