‘If I Loved You’, tell us more about the single. I released this single in May and it was my third single to ever be released. So far, the reaction has been super positive! I sang this song live on a mini tour before It was released, and I had a dream of a moment when the crowd sang the song back to me. It will be a moment in my career that I’ll never forget. 

What is the meaning behind the single?
This new single is about love and how big love is! It is about me wondering if I could allow myself to have a big love? And if I did, what would that be like? And from that, I wrote this single, If I Loved You. 

Describe the track in two words.
Risky Love 

What was the writing process like?
 It was a really fun process. It was fun to write a song about a good situation. I wrote it with Brandon Colvein, and the moment I fell in love with this song was the melody with “If I loved you” written with it. 

What was the recording process like?
 I recorded with Adrian Gurvitz and every time I record with Adrian, I receive so much knowledge from him. Being able to sing the adlibs was so fun. I want to now do that with every song!!

Brandon Colvein and Adrian Gurvitz

Who are your influences?

What was the song you listened to most that influenced you to go more into the music scene?

Don’t put your happiness into things that can change.
