When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
Music has always been a part of my life. I started writing again 5 years ago and now have over 150 songs in my catalog. I have released 3 full-length albums in the past 3 years, Waves of Indigo, Better Days, and Forever.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
I consider myself a songwriter who enjoys all genres. Music is like food it depends on your mood.
On your current project, how did you come up with the concept?
“Sad Songs” from my album Better Days has received a lot of interest on social media. It has gone viral on TicTok and sound cloud with streams and downloads in over 45 countries. The highest number of streams have come from the UK.
How can fans find you?
What suggestions do you have for other artist like yourself?
I believe a good song doesn’t have a best before date and neither does a songwriter.
