Who are some of your biggest musical inspirations and why?
My musical inspiration comes from artists such as Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Melanie Martinez, Madison Beer, Ic3Peak and much more. I tend to find a lot of new artists as well from time to time because it drives a lot of new ideas.
What are some non-musical inspirations that motivate your music?
For my song lyrics, I mostly tend to get inspiration from personal experiences and stories that I’ve been told. I also really enjoy diving into new realms and playing different characters while writing. Showing conflicting perspectives as I play a unique alter ego each time.
