1: What inspires you to create?

I don’t know what else to do with myself, it’s one of the few things that still brings me joy. I believe art is one of the only ways that can bring about conscious positive change in the here and now.

2: What advice would you give to someone who wants to be in a creative profession?

Stop listening to other people, the only exception would be unless they’ve done what you want to do. Never give up.

3: Do you feel open minded about what you listen to? Do you like going out of your comfort zone?

Depends on the day, I do enjoy music that challenges me! 

4: What outlets do you find out about music from? (Record stores, magazines, samplers, etc.)

These days mostly friends recommendations because the algorithm is fucked :)

5: What is your favorite format to listen to music on? (CD, Vinyl, etc.)

Vinyl or someone DJing quality tunes through a loud PA system.

6: How do you feel the internet has impacted the music business?

It’s started something that cannot be stopped! I love the immediacy of sharing music via socials/msgs and the like….I do not enjoy what it’s done to the attention span of so called music lovers. I feel strongly that lovers and fans need to start putting value back into music because otherwise no one will.

7: Who was the first band/artist that became your favorite band?


8: If you could open a show for any artist, who would it be?


9: Do you have any hobbies outside of music?

I enjoy being out in nature, biking, writing, drawing, talking shit with my friends.

10: What was the inspiration for your song “Addicted To Strangers”?

The people I see on the streets, social media, how we collectively appear to use each other to mask our own pain.
