Where are you from and how did you get started?
I am an independent Trans R&B and Pop singer-songwriter from Miami, Florida. I started out singing at 6 years old and started writing music at 9. I was actually in a group with a deal on a table with Electro Records that split and I ended up going solo! I have been training with Michael Sterling here in Miami. I have even opened for Chris Brown and Ne-Yo. My purpose is to tell the world my story through my platform. There's a lot of people like me: Black and Trans. Those who feel misunderstood and scared to show their talent because they are different.
How do you manage your self-care as an artist?
I have a very strong support system with my family and my friends. They keep me going. It gets discouraging and scary but they remind me I have a purpose and I can make a difference. I have to be confident in what I’m doing and they help me do that.
Do you have new releases or upcoming shows you would like to share?
I just finished my EP and I have an album out on all platforms called, “Been Here Before.” Its message is that we all hurt the same but we all heal differently. No release date yet for my EP but keep an eye out. Hot 105.9 is going to spin my single I have dropping soon named, “I Need to Know." Lots of exciting things in the works!
What is challenging with wellness and/ or mental health as a musical artist?
My biggest challenge is me and my thoughts. Fighting negative emotions and self- doubt. I have to remind myself I am good at what I do and everyone who listens to my music will walk away with something from it. It's my time and I'm ready!
Tell us about your mission as an artist!
I'm very creative and I don’t pretend to be someone I’m not. I stand up for what’s right. I love to be on stage and connecting with fans and gaining new fans. I want to be a reminder that you don't have to compromise living your authentic truth for your dreams to come true.
