I don’t do it for the money I do it because I enjoy entertaining people! 🙂 I’ve been writing/performing since I was 12 and I’ve always had a love for music.
Music is something that feels natural to me its a creative process if i’m not making music i’m usually creative in other fields to stay busy. Making music and writing songs isn’t thinking - its more a feel. Thinking is like walking against a river current whilst feeling the music is riding the wave.
“Rhythm and blues” as we understand it today most often describes a style of music that developed after World War II that combines jazz, pop, gospel, soul and many other genres of amazing music. I would like this, my music to make you feel what i feel when writing these songs, but to also take you back to history while hearing this music. It is a combination of everything we love and hate and that is why I love sharing my music, my colour with the world. Hear my soul.
I've been doing music all my life! It allows me to express my emotions in ways I wouldn't be able to speak about. My art represents real life for all classes of people from the highest class to the lowest Everyone relates to love, trying to make it, hustling , partying, and self motivation and I feel my music provides all the above.

I breathe music, I have not gone a single day without It, I always make time for my craft as it’s what makes me happy and inspires the people around me to persevere through the hard times and come out on top. My music is very unique as I make RnB, Neo soul and rap music and try to mould them together to create a sound for my listeners to enjoy no matter which genre I pick.

Art feels innate to me, but it was forced out of me when I found myself in nothingness during lockdown. I didn’t start painting straight away-I’d say it began in summer 2021, but lockdown was a catalyst. I started producing a few years ago and started singing in 2022. The performances started rolling in, in January after my first performance with Acoustickle.

I do music because it’s a way to say the things that are normally hard to say, I feel like music gives me a voice and from young I’ve always made music more serious recently, but at a young age I would always make songs for my mum to cheer her up, music is in my heart and I want it to be in everyone’s heart, I enjoy the passion of being creative and saying the things I would normally keep locked in, I’m normally a antisocial person who hates conversations and music helps me break that barrier.
