When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
I loved music before I can remember. There are videos of me performing in front of my family when I was around 3-4 years old. I think the dream of becoming an artist has also been there most of my life, but there is this specific moment when I decided to go after my dream.
It was during a school holiday when I was around 12 and I was sitting in my room watching YouTube as I was designing and making dresses in my room, and this song came on that just changed everything. It was You below with Me by Taylor Swift. To me at the time, she seem just like everyone else and she had what I just thought some people could get. After that, I started writing songs and practicing with more and more singers, with the mindset that if she could, then so could I.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
I think over the past few years a lot of my inspiration has come from Maren Morris and Kelsea Ballerini. I also listen a lot to Luke Combs and Sam Hunt. I really appreciate writing that’s just telling life stories!
On your current project, how did you come up with the concept?
This song as well as my last single A Little Bit Longer are both written from personal experience. Weekend girls are for me a song about heartbreak, but it’s telling the story of someone walking away even though all they wanted was to stay. And I really wanted to show that you can be sad and all that and still be true to your values and act after them. That’s the reason for the rockier guitar sound, to keep the message strong.
What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
The greatest challenges this last year have been time and funding. Moving on from COVID I got a full-time job, that took up a lot of time, and me at the same time arranging for my move to LA has resulted in my release taking some extra weeks to happen. But my greatest attribute when it comes to work ethic is that my music is hand down what I want most in my life, so it’s prioritized always even though my time is limited.
What are your plans for the near future?
I’m a few months I will be fulfilling a long-time dream of mine and moving from Europe to Los Angles. I will be able. To do so though just today having gotten accepted to study at UCLA extend. I will continue to work with Tim Pottery Jones who has produced my last singles and hopefully more music for some in the fall.
How can fans find you?
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Just to keep on going and loving the process. A few years back I was in this studio with a producer I was working with at the time and I was dreaming away waking about all things that we could do once we’ve made it. He then just says “yeah sure, but right now is also pretty great”. This quote is something I use to remind myself that the enjoyment and love for music are there, even though the big career might not be.
