Journalist; Hi! How are you?
Great, thank you!
Journalist; Tell us about your background, what has gotten you to where you are today?
I am a 22 year old songwriter, artist, and model. As an only child, I grew up in a music family; I was always around something music related. In August 2017, I moved to New Orleans, Louisiana, to make connections and pursue my degree in Music Industry Studies, at Loyola University New Orleans. After graduating in the fall of 2020, I moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where I am currently based, and living the dream!
Journalist; Where are you from?
I was born and raised in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands.
Journalist; When did you start music?
I started music when I was about 5 years old. Between kindergarten and high school, I was in jazz band, school band, and playing in church. My love for songwriting and producing didn’t really start til I was in college. Being around my peers pushed me to not only expand my talents, but to learn more about the music industry.
Journalist; How did you get into music?
My parents, mainly my dad. His side of the family is full of musicians. Back home, they are known for playing around the Caribbean. He pushed me as a kid to read music and to learn music theory, which I am extremely blessed to know.
Journalist; Who inspires you the most musically?
Hmmm, there are so many people who inspire me musically. From Michael Jackson, Prince, Metallica, Bob Marley… all the way to Travis Scott, Don Toliver, Drake, Eminem. I listen to a lot of music, we’ll be here for days if I list all my inspirations, haha!
Journalist; What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?
That I am bringing more good energy. Sit back and enjoy the journey!
Journalist; Any new music coming out soon?
Besides dropping some singles here and there, I’m in the process of working on my mixtape, dropping sometime in the Spring. Be on the lookout!

Her debut in the music scene came in 2021 when she was featured on Long Beach Rapper Monsta Yo’s single “Don’t Wanna Lose You.” Then, in May 2023, she released her first single titled “Letter 2 My First Born,” a touching tribute to her son. A few months later, on July 1st, she dropped her second single “Click Clack,” featuring Los Angeles rapper Engine 5ive.
