As a singer, my body is my instrument, so I make it a goal to take extra special care of myself
What do you take extremely seriously when it comes to your music?
I prioritize my mental and physical health. As a singer, my body is my instrument, so I make it a goal to take extra special care of myself. I believe this enhances my performances.
What can you be lax about when it comes to your music?
I am more relaxed about the amount of time it takes to finish a song. I love finishing a song and feeling proud of the final outcome, so I believe taking extra time to finish a project is worth it.
Who is the most demanding about your music?
Sometimes social media can feel challenging, but I’ve realized recently that it’s all about my mindset. Even something that feels really challenging or demanding can turn into a fun experience if I change the way I’m thinking about it and focus on the positive.
What demands do you make of yourself when you need to keep on the right track?
I give myself grace. I believe grace is key during stressful times because it encourages me to be kinder to myself and relax into the process of creating.
How do you figure out what needs to change rather than just adjusted?
I journal. I love writing all my thoughts and feelings down on paper and letting everything flow out. Journaling usually helps me pinpoint what might be bothering me and how I can change or adjust it.
Coming from your hometown, how does it influence the music you make?
When I’m in my hometown with my family, I feel very grounded. It inspires me to make music that is relatable and realistic.
Are there any other influences you pull from?
Sometimes I’m influenced by dreams I have or the things I’m hoping for in my heart. And I’m also influenced by my favorite artists, like Ariana Grande and ABBA. Lately, I’ve been listening to a lot of jazz music, and I think it’s influencing me, too.
How are you trying to make sure you do the right thing for yourself and your art?
I reflect on the values I want to exude through my art and the goals I have, and I see how that matches the art I am creating at that moment.
