THE CONNECTION

Embracing the punches

I grew up in the outskirts of Ottawa living as a Soul pop, hip-hop/ rock lover in a country twang thriving, Catholic high-school. Feeling trapped and brainwashed, and never fitting in to any scene I often was a chameleon in many cliques - trying to find my own rhythm. Discovering youtube music, I uncovered my passion for singing during my first glimpse at releasing anxiety in just belting out lyrics at the age of 9. From that point on, I was involved as many music endeavours as possible like dancing, singing lessons, or trying to learn piano by ear.

Live Life in Song

The street beats of Ottawa and the rare Open mic late night is where I currently live and perform. I followed my dream of pursuing music and spent 4 years studying music at Carleton University. I write my lyrics and started producing my own songs alongside artists and sound engineers who inspire me. 

Inspired by all virtues

Inspired by all virtues

I love and live for collaborating with other artists and experimenting with different genres of music. I find inspiration all around me.  I try to make my music representative of myself and my generation. I love the places that most people don't give a second glance, especially the weird and eerie. The lunar phases are especially an inspiration in my latest collaborations.
