Live Show Ritual:

I always try to be show ready early so that I can stay out front a bit and support my fellow artists. Closer to show time, I panic wildly in the washroom… Once I step onto a stage, all of my stage fright vanishes and I’m explosive. I live for those moments.

Favourite local artist:

Chris Godfrey

Sneaky Dees nachos, pasta from Terroni or a superfood salad from Fresh?

Ouuuffffffffff! I love all of those! Terroni pasta. I am a pasta fiend!

Queen or College St?

Queen Street

Trinity Bellwoods or High Park, Riverdale or Kew Gardens?

Highpark. Love the animals and the biodiversity.

EP or LP?

EP for now. I want my supporters to continue getting to know me before we take that next step.

Early bird or night owl?

Both. It just depends on which one comes first! I love mornings, and nights are divine. I can’t get enough of either!

Road or studio?

Studio. I train circus arts so being home allows me to record often, while keeping up a strict training regimen.

Swiss Chalet or Roti?

Roti everytime!

Any shows or albums coming up?

I’m releasing a clean version of, “Dungeon” on December 9th, but will also be releasing a short film called, “Trauma,” early in the new year. Other than that, I am currently building a silks routine with my amazing coaches at, Toronto’s Flying Arts Collective and will be showcasing it in February. This routine will be performed to one of my own original songs.
