Tell us a little about how you discovered your love for music. Who are some of your greatest influences?
I realized I had a love for singing and songwriting when I lost so many people in my life in a very short period of time. My greatest influence in music would be Adam Levine and his band Maroon 5. I really look up to them and admire their work ethic and their songs they write and sing.

Tell us about your song. What inspired you? How do you hope listeners will receive your message?
In June 2017, I got inspired to write a song to my two sisters Maddie and Jenna, as they were about to head off to college. The reason I wanted to write ["Us Three"] is because of how much I was going to miss them, and how much I love them, most of all, I love to try to stir the pot and try and get under their skin. I hope my listeners get the inspiration to write a song to their sibling as they head off to college as a nice sendoff.

What have you learned from your experience with Totem Star? What are some of the biggest takeaways?
What I have learned from Totem Star is being able to be comfortable on stage and not have stage fright. I think everytime I performed I felt more and more comfortable as time went on and now when I perform on stage I feel completely relaxed. Also, I have learned how to sing from my diaphragm and not from my throat.

What advice would you give to other young artists?
My advice to other young artists is to follow your dreams, never give up and live life to the fullest.
