Where are you from? Born and raised in San Bernardino, CA
How did you get into doing music? I started doing music when I was 11 years old. I grew up in a tumultuous domestic space; to combat the fear and the anger, I would lock myself up in the bathroom with my CD player, a pencil and a pad, and I taught myself how to write raps. Over the years, it turned from a hobby to a career option and it remains my form of therapy and self-care and self-reflection, only now, I realize I've been blessed with a skill to help others through my music.
What do you want people to take from your music? I want people to understand that we're all ambivalent creatures. We are all contradictions and we are all capable of the most horrific things but also the most beautiful things. I want people to know that its okay to mess up, the trick is to learn and move forward. I don't want the irony or sarcasm to get lost in translation; I'm just trying to become a better person through exploring what I see around me and what I see inside of myself and hopefully it can be transformative for the person who decides to listen.
Describe your sound My music is fragile and aggressive, gentle and angry, tender and rough. I try to blend singer-songwriter introspection, literature, and poetry with the technical prowess of rap music. I try to find a balance between writing something that has style and is catchy and writing something that is relatable, is subtly poetic and offers more than my own interpretation. Sonically, I like to stay current with the sound of the moment while trying to find an interesting way to make it my own, usually by adding elements of other genres, like indie rock, Emo and R&B, be it a sample, chord progression, song structure, or vocal tone.
