What inspired you to get into music?
Emotion and art are my biggest inspirations. Just growing up and watching rockstar’s and rappers, listening to their music. From artists like Coldplay and Prince to 2 Chainz. Being able to evoke different emotions and ideas through music, whether its sadness or just a good time.
How would you describe your music?
Its still evolving, but it’s fun right now. I think that’s the best way to describe it. SAVAGE & FUN. Savage to me just means real, honest, raw, which can sometimes be a jarring sight.
What would you say is your recording and song writing style?
Writing is honestly how I got into music. One day I was so depressed, and I wrote, and I said this is a song. A bit angry, but it’s a song! That song was “RIP DA SAVAGE”
Where would you like to see your music career in 5 years time?
Making more music, playing big shows all over the world, just enjoying the art and the fans! I really love fashion, so I want that to be a big part of my music.
