I write about things that I see and experience. My song “Fear” is about many problems that our world is facing Terrorism, mass shooting, discrimination, and more. I watched a video called “Me and Mass Shooting” by Buzzfeed where a man named Eugene speaks about all the cases of mass shootings he has witnessed growing up. This made me think about all of the tragedies and mass shootings that have happened since I was born and how everyone needs to strive to make this world a better place. I am hoping this song touches and motivates everyone to help make this world more loving.

The music…
I went to Dallas to record at Audio Studio Dallas, with Paul Osborn. Paul Osborn has worked with people like Alessia Cara,Korn, and Maranda Lambert. All the instruments that you hear in the song where all played by people from his studio musicians. The base and some guitar was played by a friend I made back when I was in middle school during X-Factor auditions. It was really awesome to be in an actual recording studio, and seeing all the equipment. Much different from when I recorded my EP, where I just recorded it in a small room in Denton. The cool thing about the studio I recorded Fear and my other newest song One Night Stand was that it was all recorded in analog. These old tubular wiring and it sounded so awesome. Both songs where mixed at Audio Studio Dallas with Paul, and then we sent it off to get mastered in California with Pete Lyman at Infransonic Studios. Pete Lyman has mastered several popular people like Panic at the disco, Banks, and my personal favorite Halsey.

I just released my newest song “One Night Stand.” This song is about a girl who falls for a guy she shouldn’t have. Someone who is Toxic and doesn’t truly care about her. There time together wasn’t suppose to mean anything, but she fell anyways. He pushes her away when she becomes to clingy or to much to handle; and has to do things his way. Her love she creates to deep and it blinds her from the reality of her situation. So she goes by his terms just to get a moment with a man who will never love her back. My newer music is dealing with real life issues that teenagers and young adults face in their daily lives. I want my newer songs to be real, and something anyone can have or will experience; and to show everyone you aren’t alone, someone has been there before too. I can’t say I write always from personal experience with my music, because my life is boring typically (consisting of school, games, music, and sleep) but I write from friends and families situations which always makes it really fun and intriguing.

I live in Wichita Falls, Texas. It is not a large city and the music seen is relatively small. There are a few coffee shops and bars that allow for live music. Most local musicians travel to the Dallas area to perform. Though, some people just stick with the small crowds and the coffee houses.

Music business…
I am just starting out in the music business and so far I have had nothing but positive feedback and results. On my first EP I recorded without a live band and had Gary Forsythe at Collision- Point Publishing build different parts to my music around me and my guitar. Gary did a great job working with me to get the finished product. It took a lot of phone calls and Gary was very patient with me. My last two songs I got to record in studio and got to work with live musicians like expand above. Paul with Audio Studio Dallas was very kind and patient. He helped me really learn about the recording process a lot more and I really enjoyed my time working in his studio.

I would love to have 5 minutes alone with…
Halsey, Ashley Frangipane. H, Ash, Halsey is my absolute favorite singer. I love how spirited and real she is. She has a persona about her that radiates and effects anyone and everyone around her. She isn’t afraid to speak her mind and be herself, and I absolutely love that. She is truly inspiring.
