What is your name?
What is your genre of music?
Electro-Pop with a bit of indie influences
Give us a little bio about you.
I grew up in Brooklyn and I’ve been surrounded by music ever since I can remember. I live in both NYC and LA so I’m constantly traveling and I’m able to draw in more and more inspirations for my tracks. Like the true New Yorker that I am, I am always hustling and trying to make things happen. I absolutely love what I do and want nothing more than for others to be able to enjoy my music as well.
What made you go in to music?
I absolutely fell in love with The Rolling Stones at a young age. I was instantly hooked, how could you not be! I started song writing through a documentary I was making for a college course, I wanted to have an interesting story arc so I thought watching me struggle with writing a song for the first time would make for a good story, but I ended up falling in love with it! The process of writing music, producing it, recording it, singing and performing excites me like nothing else!
Are you a signed?
I am not signed but eventually I would like to become signed because being an indie musician is quite expensive!
Your set to release your new single ‘Gold Rush, tell us more about the single.
I wrote these lyrics when I had a hearing injury in my bed, and I made the beat in bed as soon as I was a little better! They’re about the role of California in my recording career I guess.
What is the meaning behind the single? “Gold Rush”.
opens the door for others to explore their deepest desires, the dreams that keep them up at night. I was inspired by the mid-1800’s California Gold Rush, I saw a parallel of others uprooting their lives without a guarantee of success in my own musical journey.
Describe the track in two words.
Inspirational and fun!
What was the writing process like?
I just kind of fell into a trance and started writing the lyrics in my iPhone notes app. It just kind of all poured out and thankfully made sense.
What was the recording process like?
I recorded it at 4th street in Santa Monica with mix engineer Chase McElhaney. It wasn’t fun and I was so grateful to be able to hear properly after my hearing injury!
Who did you work with on the single?
Chase McElhaney mixed the track and he is the best!

When you’re not doing music, what do you do?
I like to spend time with my friends in LA or my boyfriend Sam when I can! I read and go to the movies quite a lot and I sleep and eat quite a bit. I also always find myself doing research for places that I can perform at, music seems to always be on my mind.
What was the song you listened to most that influenced you to go more in to the music scene?
Great question. I love Spooky by Dusty Springfield and liked to imagine myself performing it in small venues back in the day so I’d say that played a role. ]
What’s the best advice you have ever been given?
