Entertwine: You just released a new single/video for “Can’t Lose Your Love” Feat. Raxiel Sinz. What influenced this song? Raxiel and I wanted to do a love song with an unconventional twist to it. We are huge crime/thriller junkies. Raxiel and I are big on story lines and thinking outside of the box. We were able to convey the story through our video.
What was the filming process like for the video? It was a wonderful experience. As we started filming more ideas came to the table and we are possibly doing a sequel.
Were you always attracted to the pop/dance genre? What attracted you to it initially? I love all types of music but the pop/dance genre is what I prefer to do. I like catchy beats, melodies, and hooks. I am attracted to the feel good vibes and the international reach pop music can take an artist.
Any influences that swayed your decision to start performing and writing? Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, AFI, The Neighbourhood, Lady Gaga, G Eazy, and Christina Aguilera. I like artists who are hands on in their music and their success. I am not big into the manufactured and boxed in artists. I like artists that step out of the norm.
How has your hometown of Atlanta influenced your music career? What is your favorite part of Atlanta’s music scene? The Atlanta scene is a tough market. Everyone does music. The scene really has encouraged me to be myself and keep growing and learning as an artist. Atlanta has a huge urban market. I have added a bit of its flavor into my newer music. My favorite part is the influx of music in the city. We are now a Hollywood/LA.
What is next for you in 2016? What can listeners expect to hear from you? I am releasing a new project with Raxiel Sinz. More shows, more videos, and more surprises. Listeners can expect to hear a sweeter side of me. I am exploring the softer side of myself.
