Tell us about being in the studio with Grammy winner and platinum selling producer, Warren Huart for your new project.
Being in the studio with Warren has been such an amazing experience and I’m so honored to be working with him. I am getting to see first hand why he has so much success with popular artists. The inspiration behind the E.P is R&B-Pop with messages about love, power and being true to yourself. Music brings people together and I want to share my stories and make people feel empowered.
What do you see as the biggest misconception about women in pop music today?
I think the biggest misconception is regarding depth and breadth of message. Women don’t just sing about love and break up anymore. The message has broadened to reveal ourselves as equals and capable of delivering the tough messages through music.
What do you see as the biggest challenges for women in the music industry today?
My experiences as a woman in the music industry have been amazingly positive thus far. I have been treated with respect and dignity. I am also lucky enough to have an amazing support structure behind me. I am not naïve enough to believe this is the same for all women. Part of my message will always be to demand integrity from everyone you work with.
How do you feel the message for women in music has evolved over the past decade?
Wow, I am only 18 so going back 10 years takes me to my Cheetah Girl’s Days. But maybe that is a good example. Watching Hannah Montana and the Cheetah Girls made me believe at a young age what was possible. Women are front and center with a powerful message, don’t mess with us, we will be heard.
What do you see as the key to longevity in this biz?
The biggest step toward longevity is to keep working hard, challenging yourself and believing in yourself. Every day is a chance to build on what you have done so far. Life is a journey of discovery; of failures and successes. I almost don’t like calling it my dream because a dream is something that happens when you are sleeping. Life happens when you are WIDE AWAKE and moving forward.
Do you enjoy collaboration with other writers?
There is so much magic in the collaboration process. Working with others is an amazing way to take an idea and watch it blossom into something special. How lucky am I that I get to work with artists who have already accomplished so much. Warren Huart has really opened my eyes to the process of finding my voice. I am so thankful to him for the chance to work together.
If you could share some knowledge with your younger self, what would it be?
If I could go back and talk to my younger self I would tell her to not dwell on the negative. Growing up is tough for most and was for me. I had a lot of energy, but certainly times where I wondered if my hard work would ever pay off. Someone once told me to try and never end a thought pattern on a negative. We all have bad days, but there is no reason not to believe that tomorrow will be better.
Anything you would like to share from your personal journey to inspire others out there!
My personal story is a lot like other women. I am at the beginning of my journey, but nothing was handed to me thus far. Life is hard, sometimes harder for females, but hard work and belief will give you a shot at success. There are no guarantees in life and the loftier your goals, the bigger the potential disappointment. It all comes down to loving yourself whether you make it or not.
