We can’t wait to see what other projects he has planned for the new year!
What marked your start as a musician and what has led you to this point?
It really began when I was around 10 years old & I joined the group Mindless Behavior. That’s when I auditioned, made the group and when my life changed, this was the point where my career became official.
What was your experience like being a part of Mindless Behavior?
My experience was great! It went by really fast so there’s so much blur that only pictures and videos can jog, but it was an amazing experience and I’m truly blessed to have had that moment.
How did your experience in Mindless Behavior influence your music and who you are today?
Being in that group really shaped me for the hard work & discipline I need to have every day as a solo artist! it was definitely a preparation for the real world.
What was the transition like from being a part of a group to solo artist?
The transition was very organic. I didn’t have a plan on going solo. The opportunity just presented itself in a way that allowed me to take my time and grow. Next thing you know I had music done and an E.P ready to drop so I just let things happen organically.
Who inspires you?
Definitely my fans! & my idols! MJ, John Lennon, and Charlie Chaplin and Usher!
Who would you want to collaborate with?
My dream collaboration would definitely be Usher!
What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time I love to workout & binge watch tv shows! just being by myself is my favorite thing to do on my off time. I can be strangely introverted at times.
What does a day in the life look like?
A day in a life of me definitely consist of workouts, rehearsals, or studio, time with family, and planning on next moves in my career.
What are you most looking forward to for this upcoming year?
I can’t wait to go on tour & start recording my debut ALBUM!!!!
