What is your names?
What is your genre of music?
Chill, dreamy pop.
Give us a little bio about you.
I’m a newer artist living in Nashville, TN! Originally, I’m from a cute little town called Hartland in Wisconsin, but I moved to Nashville to pursue music and to attend college at Belmont University. I started releasing music in 2018 and since then have sort of revamped my style from a more folk, singer-songwriter kind of sound into pop.
What made you go into music?
I’ve just always gravitated toward it. Music has always felt so real to me in a world that can feel really fake.
Are you a signed?
You set to release your new single ‘I Can Dream, Can’t I’, tell us more about the single.
It’s dreamy and light and versatile in the sense you could probably chill to it or dance to it, which I like. Right after I wrote it, I knew that it was going to be the first single and music video
What is the meaning behind ‘I Can Dream, Can’t I’?
The idea behind it is based on a relationship where you’re not with the other person anymore but you still dream about them and the relationship. It’s kind of playfully touching on a subject that is pretty hard to go through and an attempt to make the subject feel a little lighter.
Describe the track in two words.
Will we see a music video for the track?
Yes! And I love it so much. Luke Harvey at Mossflower pictures brought his eye and talent and totally made my vision a reality.
Will we see an EP or Album this year?
I’m not sure yet…hopefully another EP!
Do you have any shows coming up?
Not at the moment, but as new music starts to be released I’ll definitely be starting to book some shows.
If so where will you be heading?
I played some shows in the Midwest last year, so somewhere different, maybe the south? I lived in Texas as a kid, maybe Austin and Dallas and some more cities. We’ll see!
What else can we expect in Early 2020?
I’ll be releasing a second single called Powerless next. The date is still tentative though.
Do you have any collaborations coming up with any up coming artists?
Not right now, but hopefully in the near future!
Would you be up for collaborations if other musicians wanted one with you? and who would they have to contact?
I love co-writing and co-creating so I’m always down, but the vibe of the artist would have to feel right. They can contact me by email at email@example.com.
Do you play any instruments?
Guitar is my main instrument, I can definitely play and support myself live, but I could definitely improve! And I love the piano, I can play a little bit but that’s also something I want to work on.
Who are your influences?
It changes all of the time. Right now, I love the pop stuff going on. I’m pretty inspired by artists like Doja Cat, The Weeknd, Lauv and Harry Styles. They’re bringing something unique and cool but it’s still somehow mainstream.
How do you get inspiration to write songs?
I listen to artists I like, I flip through books and pick words that sound nice together, I listen to beats online and just see what flows.
Where do you see yourself now in 5 Years?
Still creating music, whether that be on a more professional level or not. If I’m lucky enough to have it be my career full time, I hope that I’ve really developed a personal sound more.
When you’re not doing music, what do you do?
Right now, I’m serving at a wine bar. It’s a great place with an incredible staff. Other than that, I’m really into spirituality and health and nutrition so I like to read a lot and learn about that.
What was the song you listened to most that influenced you to go more in to the music scene?
It’s hard to pick one song, but every time I hear Tiny Dancer, I get so overwhelmed with how good it is, and then I realize I don’t care about anything like that, so it’s hard to not pursue music when certain songs/artists make me feel more than anything else does.
What the best advice you have ever been given?
To love myself and stay in my own lane. Especially in music comparison will kill you.
What advice would you give to aspiring musicians not about the industry and just as an artist?
Similar to what I said above, find YOUR sound. I spent way too much time in college afraid to put any music out because it wasn’t the same sound as this person or that person, but try as hard as you can to be objective and listen to outside feedback when necessary but otherwise just focus on your own craft
What quote or saying do you always stick by?
Your life is as good as your mindset.
Where in your hometown is a must go to visit?
Haha. I wouldn’t exactly Hartland, WI a town that attracts a lot of tourists, but if you happen to be there, go to HB Cafe, it’s the best.
Your coming off tour;
1/ Where do you go first? Definitely my bed
2/ Who do you see first? My roommates!
3/What do you eat first? Thai food
When you are at a gig, what are 5 things you cannot forget?
Water, a guitar tuner, my phone, rosewater facial spray, and to chill.
