Success to me is never ending. I feel successful when I write a song, get musicians together for a jam, keep my room clean, finish a project, etc. Being happy and focused on what you’re doing/achieving at the moment is what makes you the most successful you can be.

My music is..
I like to describe my music as soul music because it’s what comes out. It’s hard for me to identify myself in just one genre or even two. I grew up internationally, listened to many different genres and met a lot of unique people. I feel that my music revolves around that journey and what I’ve experienced in my life, traveling and making new connections/stories every where I’ve been and everywhere that I will go.

What piece of music advice forever changed your way of thinking?
“Don’t think – just feel” I honestly don’t remember if someone told me that or if I heard it somewhere, but it’s the best advice I believe in musically.. to an extent of course. I feel that sometimes we get too caught up in a note or a word of a song that it confuses the whole thing, making it stressful (or maybe I’m just a perfectionist). But personally, I’m learning everyday to go with the flow of what feels right without overthinking.
Song name: Count Your Shoes
Music Genre:: Singer-Songwriter, Latin Rock, Jazz, Reggae, Soul
Count Your Shoes” is a song about an experience I had, dealing with a person who was really into psychology and analyzing people. It’s a sassy take on how a person who thinks they have everyone figured out should realize how many shoes they’re trying to fit into, metaphorically speaking, instead of their own. As some point in the song I mention him thinking how I’m supposed to be a lady and act a certain way, so I call him a baby!
I live in…
I was born in La Paz B.C, Mexico, moved to San Diego at a young age and ended up living in China for 5 years of my life. The music scene in Shenzhen, China is what began my entire musical career. I started performing at open mics and such at the age of 12, learning from the bar’s bands and the musician community in Shekou. At 16 I moved back to San Diego to continue my career with wider opportunities. The music scene here is very different from where I came from but it’s very friendly and open-minded. I’ve met really cool musicians and have had groovy jam outs so far. I’m really excited to keep working on this journey and seeing what happens.
