Tell us about your debut single, First Quarter. What was the process of creating this song like for you?

This song felt like a turning point for me. It was the moment that I really started to leave all the bad energy that was in my life in the past and really step into my future with a clear direction.

In terms of music – what are you really looking forward to in the future?

I’m really looking forward to performing. I can’t wait until life gets back to normal so I can start doing shows!

As am I! I can’t wait to get back to live shows. Final question – to you, what makes Philly a great music city?

I think Philly has so much soul. You can feel it in the air. Philly is such a wavy place and it comes across so clearly in the music that comes out of the city.
