When did you start singing?
I remember discovering my love for singing and music around the age of 7, but apparently I use to hum myself to sleep in the cot.
Who are your biggest influences?
I’ve always been drawn to real singers. Artists like Luther Vandross, Lauryn Hill, Whitney Houston. But then I also hold songwriters in the same esteem: Diane Warren, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis and Walter Afanasieff.
How would you describe your songwriting process?
I would call it fluid, and natural. I sometimes simply start humming whatever comes to mind and slowly shape it and chip away until it lands where I want it to. I rely on my ear and imagination as oppose to musical theory and chord structures.
What inspires you when you write your music (lyrically and also melodically)?
Melody is king! Words are super important too but I try for melodies that give you goosebumps and are memorable. I then rework the lyrics over and over to create something clever and non cliché.
What are your musical plans for 2020?
Currently working with producers and always creating new music, My fabulous label and I plan to release a number of songs in 2020 and get out there and play them for you.
Are you planning to collaborate with any other artist?
Collabs are vital to any artist! I love working with different people, it brings out a new creative edge that otherwise wouldn’t be there. Haven’t done a duet in a while that could be fun!
If you get a chance to work with another musician, who would it be?
I’d love to write a song with Walter Afanasieff, Sing a song with George Michael and have Clive Davis produce my album. Haha!
What was the craziest experience in your music career so far?
Reaching number 1 on the Switzerland Dance Charts in December 2019 and being invited to meet Molly Meldrum.
Where have you performed? Any upcoming shows for 2020?
I’ve played many great venues around Australia in my time, one of my most noted is in front of thousands of party goers at the Fresh FM Birthday at one of the biggest clubs in the country.
Watch this space, many more exciting moment ahead.
If you could change anything about the music industry, what would it be?
I’d imagine it’s the same as every other musician out there... to go back in time and prevent music becoming a stolen entity online and forever changing artists’ potential to make a living and be recognised for their professional skill.
