You released your latest Single ‘Happy’, tell us more about the single and the meaning behind the song.
I wrote this song when I was in a pretty dark place. I had trouble connecting with people around me and I didn’t trust myself, or others for that matter. But this song is more about how even when you have these moments, life can still be beautiful and we can still be happy. The darkness doest have to overshadow the good moments too. So this song is about letting yourself be happy.

Describe the track in two words.
Relieving, uplifting

What was the writing and recording process like?
When I wrote this song it actually stemmed from a conversation I was having and I genuinely thought to myself, “If I can’t trust myself, how is anybody supposed to trust me?” That sparked a flow of thoughts that formed the lyrics, I didn’t have to think much about the text because it was a flow of consciousness. The melody came with the words. Then I sang it to my producer and we picked a tempo, and basically I sang the entire song to a click track a-capella, and we formed the music around that.

Who did you work with on the single?
I worked with a producer that goes by the name Dock-10. He’s based in Hamburg.

What quote or saying do you always stick by?
Be comfortable with being uncomfortable. My dad said it all of the time, and I think now I am actually starting to understand what that really means.
