Growing up in city were being eclectic
and creative is not supported. I had to find my influences music and style wise from outside sources like the internet.
Even growing up I knew i was more of an old soul. When all of my peer playlist had " Chris brown" I was listen to Lauryn hill, amy winehouse and . During my youth (age 11) time is where I fell in love with soul music and that stuck with me through out my life . So much so that it is translated through my music today.
Making Songs are like mini venting session for me . The help me get through and unleash emotions that i have suppressed.
I feel like music now lacks art and messages . When you can genuinely be yourself and your words create and safe heaven for the listener . I think that's the Ultimate pay off for an artist.
