Describe yourself in 3 words? Free, understanding, authentic. We’re sure you have been asked this million times but how did you get in the industry? My dad is a Hispanic singer-songwriter, so I grew up in a version of this industry. How has this changed your life? It’s definitely allowed me to grow into a person with strong intuition and a strong mind, being around it from a young age, it also allowed me to never say never to my own dreams of creating positive change in the world and to believe that anything is possible. Describe your sound in 3 words? Hypnotic, grounded, new age. Who influenced you and why did you choose to make music? Nature is my number one influence; I learn the most from her and I always feel like the earth is writing through me rather than my own mind creating my songs. Some artists I really love are Aurora, Lady Gaga, Willow, Mose, Peia, and Polo & Pan. Do you play any instrument? I play piano and a little guitar. Do you ever get nervous? Every time I perform, I get nervous, but I think it’s just part of the human experience. I’d be more concerned if I didn’t feel anything in moments like those.
