You are 15 and have already done so much. When did you start singing and writing music?
I have been singing since I can remember. I was in my first musical when I was 4 and have been in 24 since. I wrote my first song when I was 8 and recorded several more originals for a 3rd grade school project. I kind of kept going from there.
Tell us about your latest EP, “Beautiful Nightmare,” your lyrics are so deep for someone your age. What is the message you are trying to
convey to your listeners?
The title track is a song about social anxiety. My message might be that I hope people realize it is ok to experience difficult emotions and situations. It’s important to know that things get better it just takes time and healing.
Who are some of your biggest influences?
I like Billie Eilish of course and I think her brother Finneas is amazing too. I’m also a theater nerd so currently I am listening a lot to the musical “Heathers.” I guess I draw from a lot of different places.’
I see you play both guitar and piano in some of your videos. Which instrument do you like playing better?
I like both instruments, but I am definitely more comfortable playing piano because I have played for many years. I am pretty new at guitar.
