    • What are some of the biggest challenges you've faced as an emerging artist, and how have you overcome them?

      • How do you approach the songwriting process, and where do you draw inspiration from for your lyrics and melodies?
      Most of the time it starts with the hook if I’m just vibing I can go from the verse but I like starting with the hook for the most part. I like to draw from life experiences when I’m creating a record but I also study different styles to employment in to what I feel works for the song.
      • What can listeners expect from your upcoming album or project, and how does it differ from your previous work?
      Versatility I feel like I got more personal on records as well so u get a lot more of me on this project

          • How has the music industry changed since you first started, and how have you adapted to those changes as an artist?

          It’s a lot easier to connect with ppl get your music heard and it’s more in the hands of the artist then having to have someone walk you through a door.

          Don’t give up and learn as much as you can about the business part of music and apply a strong work ethic to what you do with your music
