1.Tell us about your new song? And what’s the story behind it?
Album was called RUMTLOVE. (Pronounced as ‘are you empty, love’) It’s a culmination of my work from the last two years and all the personal growth that came with that. Musically, it’s a super diverse project with sounds ranging from hip-hop, to alternative rock, to folk.
2.What makes your music unique? And how would you describe it?
My music is unique because I truly believe someone can get to know me as a person through it. My songwriting style is so personal that I tend to even overshare at times. It’s alright through, because my goal with music has always been to shed a light on who I am and be that light for someone else who might be going through what I’ve gone through.
3.Which is the best moment in your musical career that you’re most proud of?
The best moment in my musical career was headlining at First Avenue / 7th St Entry in Minneapolis and almost selling it out. It was unreal.
4.How do you balance your music with other obligations – family, friends or work?
Music is my passion and always will be. I think no matter what you’re doing for a career, it’s important to hold tight to your passions. They help you succeed and keep you motivated in all aspects of life.
5.What advice would you give to aspiring musicians?
First, make a bunch of stuff. Try new things. Don’t be afraid to stretch the limits of what you can create and just have fun with it. Not everything you make has to be put out. Second, surround yourself with other like-minded people to push you and hold you accountable.
6.What’s next for you? Any upcoming projects?
What’s next for me is an extended version of RUMTLOVE that’ll include acoustic versions of songs plus some new ones. On top of that, I’m always working on new ventures like writing for publishing outlets, leveraging my marketing degree to help artists with branding and promotion, etc.
