What do you want people to feel while listening to “Jump the Fence”?
“I want people to trust their own intuition more. I think a lot of times people get in their own way by always needing outside reassurance or acceptance. This is about overcoming that and doing whatever it is that makes you the most happy!”
What can fans expect from your debut EP?
“I’m really focused on releasing tons of new music. So lots of singles and eventually an album or EP. But definitely new music every month! So you’ll have to stay tuned to find out!”
What’s your opinion on LGBTQ representation in music?
“I like the fact that it is becoming way more widely accepted than any other time, and that so many talented artists have been brave enough to be open and vulnerable through their art. But I also just hope that people don’t treat sexuality as a new fad.”
Who are some of your current musical influences?
“I’m always listening to different genres. But especially been listening to a lot of 80s and 90s music!”
Explain new single, “New Girlfriend” and how that song came to be?
“This was an outside song that I had heard through my A&R. I fell in love with the topline as soon as I heard it, and I knew exactly how to make it my own so I booked a day with the writers and we tweaked the lyrics. Then I spent some time referencing production ideas with the producer and it all came together super naturally. It was an honor to work with people I truly respect! This is one of my favorite records that I was lucky enough to make mine.”
