we see you have a keen sense of fashion. how do you see fashion influencing music and vice versa. what era of fashion has influenced you?

Yeah! Fashion has always been a part of my life, loved dressing up from a very young age and I guess I’ve always used fashion along with music as a way of expressing myself. And nowadays when I’m prepping for my performances I always have to choose wisely what I’m gonna wear to match the genre of music and vibe I’m going for! I guess I’m mostly influenced by the 1960s & 1970s “The Hippie era” “boho style”

who do you look up to in both fashion and music?

Erykah Badu really inspires me musically along with Jill Scott, Aretha Franklin, Amy Winehouse and many more.I can’t really say I look up to someone in both music and fashion for inspiration. For me, fashion is more of a very personal thing so I’m more inspired by how I feel.

how has technology helped music? Do you prefer the old school way?

Omg! Technology has made life so much easier for me! From being able to play my music with the touch of a button & being able to record vocals with a touch of a button! It’s amazing :)
When I was a kid growing up in the 1990s I would wait by the radio and when I hear a song I loved I would straight away press record onto my mixtape! Which took time! But I loved it, I guess I had so much more free time then anyway :)

you are seated beside your all-time music idol in a 16-hour flight, how do you think that would go?

First of all, I think that’s highly unlikely to ever happen! I would probably sit there for ages in awe and wonder why that person is sitting next to me and figure out how to start a conversation if I even should or not! I'm guessing once the conversation starts flowing I would probably let it slip that I’m a huge fan and hope that she wouldn’t change seats!! But overall I think it would go pretty smooth :)

how was your first ever performance?

I actually can’t remember my first every performance! I’ve always been performing from a young age. Actually, I guess my first ever performance on stage for a large audience when I was 16 or 17 years old, I was one of the leads in the musical 'South Pacific.'

what’s your typical day like?

Try to wake early!Eat healthy ;) I try to as much as I can! Go to the gym or swim

Work from home most of the time when I’m not performing and I’m always busy learning new songs or writing new songs.

what would you say to your future you?

Stay true to yourself

any embarrassing moment in your music life that you can share?

I once swallowed a bug whilst performing!

Didn’t tell anyone!
I was a bit worried
someone had noticed
but I carried on
singing anyway!

The eye is the window of the soul
