R&B or Dance?
Oh man, this is a hard one! But I think I prefer Dance music overall. At least in this season, that’s what I would say.
Favorite festival or venue?
My favorite festival or venue would have to be anything in San Francisco! That’s where I’m originally from and I grew up going to events out there. The people are so incredibly into the arts and super supportive!
I was just thinking about this the other day! I would love to do a collaboration with the rapper named Macklemore. He is incredible at telling stories, being in tune with the important things of life and is still independent as an artist. I look up to him in more ways than most.
Saturdays or Sundays?
This is another hard one! I love Saturdays because it’s the day that you go out and have fun… very high energy! but, Sundays are the Lord’s Day! lots of rest, recouping and refreshing. I love both. I don’t think I can decide on this one. Sorry guys!
Big night out of quiet night in?
I think most people would never guess, but I am a natural introvert who has had to become a little more extroverted as they grew into life and situations around them. So, naturally I really enjoy a night out with the people that I love… or a small gathering with the people that I love! Big crowds are not typically where I like to linger… but I’m always down for a once in a lifetime crowd opportunity.
Last thing you learned?
I currently just got done reading a book called ‘The 5:00 a.m. Club’! I loved it! It talks so much about your mindset and how to improve your life and your effectiveness with your craft. I didn’t know I needed the book at the time that I was reading it, but I am so grateful for all of the advice and mindset suggestions it gave me. Definitely taking a lot of the wisdom that book has shed for me!
Favorite song ever?
I’m just going to go with the first thing that comes to my mind: ‘Strawberry Letter 23’ by The Brothers Johnson. It’s a super funky old school song that is super unique… and I’ve always loved it with my whole heart!
Most recently, I’ve been inspired by different moments and different pieces of art that I run across. When it comes to a person that has inspired me the most though, I would definitely say Jesus. His love and the way he treated people while he was walking the Earth is unmatched. The way he sacrificed for people and put others first is something I truly, truly strive to do my own life… even though I fall short every day! looking at the way he lived makes me want to keep going in some of the toughest times.
Best personal quality?
I think my best personal quality is just my ability to not stop! I don’t know if that’s annoying or a great quality… LOL. But I have this innate ability to see the good in almost every situation and just keep pushing to see things unfold that I believe should unfold, and unfold according to the vision that I have. So, yeah. that would be my best personal quality.
Any advice to give?
Aw, man – sure! No matter who you are, I believe we all face tough times! I would just say, don’t do life alone. That’s why I make my music, so that people know they’re not alone and that God loves them no matter what they’ve done or where they stand. So, if I could say one thing to encourage people in this season, it would be: don’t do life alone. Find people to lift you up and encourage you when times get rough and keep your mind in tip top shape. If that means waking up an hour earlier to have a time of meditation or prayer… or to get a walk-in… do it! fight for your mind and your spirit’s health at all costs! We need more people that are healthy mentally and spiritually in our world… that is truly the catalyst of change! So, yeah, I would encourage you to be a person like that. We need you.
