Who are your biggest musical influences?
First and foremost, Alina Baraz. She has a very heavy influence over most of my tracks, and I am in awe of her serene tone and yet catchy R&B tunes. Galimatias and Sabrina deserve special mention.
What inspired you to write your latest album/song?
For most of 2022, I struggled heavily with the woes of growing up and trying to stop myself from trying to be and act older than I am. I was surrounded by a lot of new people who were quite a few years older, and I found myself not only envious of their adult lives but trying to emulate them, losing myself in the process.
I wrote the song to remind myself to stay present and that it was more than okay to be where I am in my life because, really, there is nowhere else I am supposed to be.
What message do you hope to convey through your music?
probably a sense of comfort or hope. However, I write music to display part of myself to people, allowing them to get a sense of what it’s like to be me and live in my shoes for 2 or 3 minutes, as per each song.
What was the most challenging aspect of recording your latest album?
The most challenging part of recording “RIGHT HERE” was trying not to do too much in a track. I love transpositions in songs, or “switch-ups,” if you wish, and wanted to have that element in the track while making sure there was a balance and flow to the song. Doing that with limited knowledge of production is always a tough task, but I am very happy with the result—one of my favourite songs to date.
What has been your favourite moment or experience as a musician so far?
It would have to be performing with my good friend and fellow musician, JXCKY. I opened for his show at the Pride of Our Footscray Bar in Melbourne and felt very proud to be on the same stage as him as two Asian queer artists.
How do you balance your personal life with your music career?
Music is still a hobby at the moment. I am also unsigned as an independent artist and can choose when to make music and have absolutely no pressure to release music at all which helps me balance things immensely.
How do you handle negative criticism or feedback on your music?
There are always lessons to learn and room for improvement. It’s important to be humble and constantly open to feedback, which I can say I am great at.
What advice would you give to aspiring musicians trying to make it in the industry?
Only make music if you genuinely enjoy it and are passionate about it—not for fame or money. Negative criticism is also harder to handle when you adapt a shallow mindset to music for short-term gains (which, truthfully, may or may not happen!).
Do you have any upcoming projects or releases that you’re excited about?
I am working on an album at the moment, which I am very excited about, but I will take as long as I need to finish it.
Do you have any plans to branch out into other genres or styles of music?
I am obsessed with R&B and couldn’t see myself branching off into any other style, but maybe the right collaboration could change that.
