How did you get into music?
If you could collaborate with any artist living or deceased who would it be and why?
How would you describe your sound?
What kind of impression do you want to make on the music industry or even in pop culture?
I’d like to humanize transgender people and make us mainstream in pop culture (especially in the music industry where we are still very under-represented). I’d like to shock people in a positive way rather than just being vulgar and over the top for no reason. I feel like so many artists these days try SO hard, and they end up losing their authenticity. I want to stay humble and true to myself and my audience.
What can we expect from you? An EP or an album perhaps?
Can you reveal the kind of music you grew up listening to? What kind of artists did you respond to as a child? Have those tastes changed now that you are older?
Music was always my escape. I had a very wide range of music I grew up listening to, from Etta James to Fiona Apple even Alanis Morissette (who was my first concert ever at 5 yrs old). My music taste has broadened but also stayed loyal to the greats who I grew up listening to.
Do you have any tour dates approaching? Where can we come and see you play?
What advice would you give to artists coming through right now?
Where do you draw inspiration from?
With your music, is there any message you are trying to convey?
For your future plans, regarding music or anything, is there a type of vibe you’re going for, or are you just letting everything happen?
