1) Tell us something about yourself that your fans may not know.
A: Britney Spears was my first Idol. I was her biggest fan when I was 5 years old. I had this whole singing voice tone inspired by her that I would perform for my family. I swear my parents were so tired of me. Lmao
2) Who are some artists who influenced your music style growing up?
A: Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Lana Del ray, Amy Winehouse, Ariana Grande, Jesse Jo stark, Ethel Cain. All those amazing females made me the artist that I am.
3) What was the experience like performing on The Voice Quebec?
A: I actually had no idea what the f*** I was gonna sing the day of the audition since it was my boyfriend at the time who had thrown me a dare to do the audition. Until the very last moment, I didn't think I would actually do it. As random as it was, the whole experience turned out surprisingly great and I had such a blast competing in the show! I'm really grateful for the experience.
4) Describe your sound for people who haven't heard it yet?
A: Alternative Pop music with soft R&B tones and subtle 1950's jazz vocals.
5) What was the idea behind your latest single Sad Boy?
A: It's about a sad boy I met last fall. He fascinated me. I think in great part because I simply didn’t understand him. At the time, I didn’t realize how greatly I had romanticized the idea of him. I still remember the times when we would text each other for hours like high school kids and how it made me feel, Although, nothing about the idea I created of him in my head ended up being as great as who he was in reality. I often find things to be better in my imagination. It was a gloomy October night. I remember it as the day I had just realized that this boy was going to be nothing but another disappointment. I was in such a bad mood and it felt like no song could match the exact way I was feeling. So I opened GarageBand on my computer and started writing this song.
6) If you could have one feature for the rest of your career, who would it be?
A: Colors studio !!!!!!
