What is it about music that makes you feel passionate?
I just have a love for music it is something that I can literally do all day long and not get bored. I feel it is just so endless. Even though there are only 12 notes I feel like the songs you can make are infinite.
Are there any musicians who inspire you? What qualities do you admire about them?
Some musicians that inspire me are Action Bronson, Maffio, Vaundy, Kenny Beats, Ado, and Post Malone. I admire all their styles because I can look at their music and pick up small things here and there and involve that in my music a little.
What’s the best piece of advice another musician ever gave you?
The best piece of advice I ever got was “keep going”.
Where do you envision “Left to Right” playing? What is the vibe you hope to capture?
I feel like “Left to Right” is a song that could be played at a club/party or when you are chillin and those are the vibes I hope to capture.
What was it like shooting the video for “Left to Right?
The video for “Left to Right” was awesome to shoot. I love classic cars and I feel there is nothing more classic than a Chevelle so it was a great experience to drive around in one as well as have other great cars on set.
