What is your name?

Are you a touring artist or a recording artist?
-Currently recording with touring aspirations.
Have you ever thought about quitting music?

Favorite Era of music?

Do you plan on traveling?
-Absolutely, any chance I can get
Are you an independent artist or are you signed or under any management?
-Not signed to any label, currently working with a friend for management
What was your most memorable concert, did you perform at it?
-Illenium’s Ascend tour, Detroit, 2019. I didn’t perform at it, but seeing the conclusion of a story that I had watched grow for years with several of my favorite artists all supporting each other on stage as homies was a very moving experience
What was your biggest challenge that you had to overcome during your music career, so far?
-I was in the Army for almost the entirety of my career, I only got out a few months ago. The job sucked up almost all of my time and drained my mental health. I had to dig deep and keep grinding while not having the freedom to book any shows.
