If I could open up for one artist it would be:
Only seems appropriate to ask–what are your intentions?
My greatest intention and mission in life is to create positive healing music for our present and our future generation! I wrote this song ultimately to check in with ourselves. What are your intentions? What are you trying to grow and manifest within self? Many of us run from our trauma, so I created this song to check in and really ask how are you doing???
How do you navigate motherhood and artistry?
Meditating, being in nature, communicating and listening to self. Taking breaks from social activities. I have a strong mother who helps me when I need a break.
How do you Wear Your Voice?
I wear my voice by singing about Life and what the people grow through.
