INTERVIEW

1. Congrats on being chosen for our Swisher Sound ambassador program! How does it feel to be partnering with Swisher in this capacity?

First off I’d like to thank Swisher Sound and everyone involved in making this happen. It feels amazing to be surrounded by such a young and motivated team that really wants the best for all of their employees

2. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where are you from, how you got into the industry, etc?

I am a singer song writer from Boston, MA who started my music career a little less than a year ago while still in college. After already accumulating 100,000 streams on all platforms and performing on my own headlining shows it feels great to parter with such a recognizable international company. Some of my biggest shows have been performing with Lil Mosey, Lil Durk, and Blueface in front of 2,000+ person crowds.

3. For those who don’t know, describe your artistry and your style of music.

I would say that my music is a perfect blend between pop and rap in the way that it can be played in almost any situation and feel right for the listener. Whether you are riding in the car, at a party, or simply sitting back and relaxing, my music would only compliment the mood of any room.

4. Talk to us about what you’ve been up to this year so far. Any new music? Shows?

2019 was full of expanding for me and taking all aspects of my music career to the next level. Going from essentially 0-20,000 monthly Spotify listeners, playing in front of thousands of people, to performing with large acts such as Lil Mosey, Lil Durk, and more. This year alone I accumulated 100,000 streams on all platforms and have been played on multiple radio stations around the country. My next show will be in September with Lil Tjay in Worcester, MA

5. What’s on the horizon for the rest of 2019?

Next year is only going to be full of bigger and better things. I plan to have 1,000,000 plays and my own headlining tour by next summer for starters. I can’t wait to see what partnering with the Swisher Sweets team can do for both of us!
