Tell us about how you got started in the industry.
I’ve always loved music, singing, and dancing! My parents put me in dance at a very early age and I fell in love with performing and being able to express myself in that way. I started writing songs very early and it was a way for me to express myself. I knew early on it was something I wanted to do.
I finished high school and moved to college. I finished in 3 years because I was like, “I have to get this done!” It was a requirement for my family to go to college. They said they would support whatever I wanted to do but that I had to get my degree. During school I was still writing songs and recording the entire time and when I graduated I released my first single, “GIVE AND TAKE.” That song ended up being number 1 on the radio in Houston for 6 weeks, and that’s where my journey began!
You’re a 3X Billboard charting artist- what are some of your most memorable moments in the industry to date?
Hearing my song on the radio for the first time was really insane- it was a moment for me! My parents were there and it was like a scene from a movie. From there I performed my first single at a car show in Houston, where I opened for a bunch of big artists. One of the big moments for me was performing my song and people singing my words.
Those were two of my first, like, big moments. From there, opening for some of my favorite artists has been wonderful. The most memorable of them all would probably be opening for Monica in my hometown of Houston. I grew up listening to Monica so it was such an honour. I got to meet her and it was iconic- she was everything I thought she was gonna be! Most recently, I performed the National Anthem at a sold-out Dodgers game.
You live by your mantra, “Music – Family – Fitness.” Tell us more about this.
Starting with family, it’s always family-first for me. One of my biggest inspirations is being a mom. I have a seven-year-old daughter and just her being able to see the grind and process is huge for me. I want her to know that any dream she has, she can go get it. She’s at the studio with me, at rehearsals, at shows- it’s an amazing experience for me to be on my journey and for her to be able to witness it. Just the support that I have from my family is huge- they keep me going when it gets tough.
Music is my passion. It’s been something I’ve loved since I was a little girl. It’s my therapy, it’s an outlet, and I realized early on that God gave me a gift and I wanted to use it.
Fitness keeps me sane! Not only physically but mentally and emotionally, as well. It’s my time of day to think through things. It keeps me ready for shows and everything I’ve got to do. It’s kinda like, if you stay ready you don’t have to get ready!
What can you tell us about your new single “That Feeling”?
This one was produced by Troy Taylor and G Sparkz . G Sparkz reached out on Instagram to send me some tracks and this one track for “That Feeling” really stood out to me. I immediately went into the studio and I wrote this song. The track just gave me that feeling- I think at some point we all feel like we really love somebody but you’re not in love with them anymore. The message for it is that we all deserve to be loved and we all deserve to be loved in a way we want and need to be loved. Sometimes when you love somebody you have to move on. I hope to empower people. My goal is to write things that people can connect to and feel.
What can listeners expect when they hear the track?
I hope it takes them on a journey! I think it’s one of those subject matters everyone can relate to, we’ve all been in a relationship at some point where it feels like we’ve outgrown the person or it’s just not working anymore. I want people to hear it and feel something- connect with it and have that moment.
I know powerful music has been for me in my life in terms of the healing process, so that’s why I want to give back to music. I want people to connect and heal and feel something when they listen to my music.
You’ve worked with some famous faces in the industry. What have you learned from the people you’ve collaborated with?
Some of the biggest things I’ve learned apply to life in general. One thing that sticks with me is to work with people who are excited to work with you, who are going to bring out the best in you and challenge you. Find people you have a connection and synergy with because it just flows. Music can sometimes be an intimate experience when wiring a song and you have to have that transparency and openness where it’s a safe space.
I’ve learned over time how to write different genres. I’ve been in sessions where I’ve learned to write pop songs, and I love country music, which is something I aspire to do at some point.
It’s important to stay true to yourself as an artist. Really stand in who you are- authenticity is the most important thing.
What’s next for you? Do you have any upcoming projects you can share with us?
I’m finalizing my album- it’s been in the worst since COVID, honestly. I’ve got a lot of stuff I’ve worked on but I’m finalizing the project and I can’t wait until it comes out. Then, touring! I’m working on getting on some tours- just getting on the road and putting the music out there.
