THE ENCOURAGING WILDFLOWER
How are you living your best life right now?
I am living my best life by spending a lot of time practicing and creating music! Doing this makes my soul smile. Being creative is such a magical and freeing experience so I make sure to take time out of my day to do that. Being able to release a lot of music is amazing! I love putting songs out and hearing what people think of it. It makes me so happy.
Congratulations on your Wildflower EP!!
When did you know when the EP was done?
I knew the EP was done once all the songs felt right. I usually just go by how I feel. I was working on the songs for many months, going through writing, recording and producing. Some of the songs I even started writing two years before they were released. They didn’t feel quite right yet so I kept working on them until it did. I’m happy with how everything turned out!
Where did the title come from?
Wildflower came from one of the songs on the EP which is called WIldflower. The song is a very happy and encouraging song to inspire people to keep going even when it’s hard because it will get better. I thought this was a perfect way to represent the EP because the songs on the project talk about real life struggles people go through and it’s nice to have it end on a positive note. I just want the EP to inspire and bring hope to this world.
How did you become inspired to make it?
When I first wrote the songs, I didn’t know they were going to be a part of this EP yet. I write the songs and then later decide how to group them into a project. I had a few songs that I wanted to release and I figured out how they fit together. They were all songs about mental health topics so I thought that was a good theme for the project.
Is there a song that sticks out? Why?
It’s hard to say, I think all of the songs have a uniqueness to them and they all have something different to say. I don’t think one song stands out from the rest. This may be a better question to ask my listeners though because I am pretty biased and I love all of my songs equally. I will say that my song Anxiety recently won the Grand Prize in the Unsigned Only Music Competition out of 10,000 entries… that one sticks out right now!
With songs from Keeping Everything Inside to Wildflower. What was the journey you wanted for your listener?
I wanted these songs to take the listener through a journey of struggle and overcoming them.
Where can fans stream and support you?

Leave us with a sneak peek of what to expect from you for the rest of this year?
I just released a song called Pretty People! I love this one because it’s about social media which I think is a very relevant subject. I get a lot of self-confidence issues from social media so I wrote the song a little about that and I hope anyone out there who also feels the way I do can listen and feel like they’re not alone. For the rest of the year I’ll be finishing up some new songs to get them ready to release starting January!
