Favourite local Restaurant:

I love The Real Jerk. It’s honestly the realest Jamaican tasting food restaurant in Toronto.

Favourite band as a teenager:

In grade 9 of high school, I discovered Paramore. Their music is so beautiful and unique.

Favourite band now:

Still Paramore.

Guilty Pleasure Song:

Please don’t judge me but…Backstreet Boys – I Want it That Way. It just makes me happy inside.

Live Show Ritual:

Drinking a sip of bottled Canadian spring water before singing. It has to be bottled Canadian spring water.

Joël. His voice and music is dope. We actually went to the same high school. Ah drama class…😂

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

Oh man, Sneaky Dees nachos!

Queen or College St?

Queen Street. That area makes me feel like a King.

Trinity Bellwoods, High Park, Riverdale, Kew Gardens, or other?

Trinity Bellwoods. Anytime I need to relax or meditate, Trinity Bellwoods Park is my go-to place.

EP or LP?

I honestly love both. Short length sometimes wins and full length sometimes wins.

Early bird or night owl?

It depends but I’m finding lately that I’m a night owl. I just love creating and not sleeping.

Road or studio?

As of now, studio!

Swiss Chalet or Roti?

Roti, mm mm mm.
