You have said that you tend to avoid pigeonholing your music by genre, what have been some of the major influences on your music?
My music is just me, but in song form! My inspiration comes from a mix of where I’ve lived, my different cultures, and my personal life.
You have been called a child prodigy of sorts, discovering singing at six years old, what has that been like to know singing is your thing so early?
First time I’m hearing that, but I’ll take it! I started singing at a young age. I noticed that I had a nice voice and started studying pop and R&B music and imitating the runs that I would hear. Lots and lots of practice! I was obsessed with pop stars like Britney Spears, Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, and would picture myself in music videos like them. I feel really lucky to know what my passion is because I know that it can be a difficult thing to find for some. At the same time I think it would be fun not knowing and figuring it out on the way.
You were born in Paris, grew up in San Francisco, but have recently relocated to Brooklyn, do you consider yourself a New Yorker?
Haha no definitely not. I feel like you need to have lived 10 years in NYC, and have eaten about 1,000 bacon egg and cheeses to be able to claim it. I’ve got a long way to go. San Francisco will always be home in my heart.
