How old are you and where are you from?
I’m 22, originally from Columbia, SC. I’ve lived right outside of Charlotte, NC for the last 6 years.
Have your surroundings shaped you in a creative sense, and in what way?
Completely. Where I’m originally from in SC is a very dead spot creatively, outdated. When I moved to Charlotte, despite still being in the Bible Belt, there’s a whole subculture surrounding underground music that really helped me find myself artistically. Being around creative people with the same goals in mind aided in my individualism.
Who are your top 5 favorite artists?
Really hard. It changes all the time and I listen to so many different genres. In no order, Bladee, Ecco2k, GREAF, The Smiths, Corbin, and Juice. That barely scratches the surface though I could name a top 50 easily, at least in that are most influential to me.
What made you start making music?
My mom… my dad too. I was really young when they stressed the importance of music to me. They always encouraged me when I told them I wanted to “be a singer.” I was lucky to have that at such a young age.
What’s your favorite song at the moment?
That changes almost weekly but this week I’ve listened to Acid at 7/11 by Yung Lean everyday
What keeps you going? How you doing mentally?
The need to progress and get better, evolve in whatever I’m trying to accomplish. Mentally I’ve been pretty shitty but I manage. Nothing I’m not used to.
How would you describe your style?
I was bullshitting with my best friend the other day and she said I make Math Pop. It was a joke but I kind of like it.
What do your parents think about you doing music?
They support it 100% since I started. Especially once I started making money.
Outside of music, what keeps you busy?
All the things I do to keep myself busy outside of making music are unhealthy so I just try to make music everyday. I hate being alone I’m pretty much always with people. In the city doing whatever there is to do. Usually buying clothes or finding ways to be somewhat productive.
Where do you see yourself this time next year?
I try not to worry about it, to not get my hopes up. I’ll definitely be in a better position musically though. Whatever that means, I’m not sure.
