— As a multi-talented artist who sings, produces, plays instruments and more, we would love to hear about how you first got into music? Where did it all begin for you and how did it lead to where you are today?
— When I was a kid I loved listening to the local jazz station. It was my dream to play sax. Once my folks got me one, my Dad started introducing me to different artists like Coltrane and Miles Davis. I really loved complex arrangements, time signature changes and lots of energy so that took me into all kinds of stuff like math rock, emo, funk and experimental music. As time went on, I sought to rein in all my influences to communicate better with other artists and to tell stories to people. I was having fun playing in bands and then I met a producer who showed me house music. It was what I had been chasing, energy but in a balanced sort of way. I discovered that you can have faster bpms but with deeper sounds and tell stories without having to stop dancing.
