How has this new way of life impacted your creativity as an artist?
It’s put me more in touch with my emotions, which as an artist I benefit from. Sometimes that’s great and sometimes that’s stressful. [WIth] all the pandemics, racism, COVID and all these things, it’s just like overwhelming. I would definitely say it put me further in touch with my emotions, which I usually run away from. It’s made me more creative, more inspired, a better writer and maybe a better singer.
What artists have inspired your craft?
I love rock stars in every sense of the word. To me, a rock star is always traditional or within the lines of what that has to mean. It’s [people] like James Brown, obviously Michael Jackson, Lenny Kravitz, Prince. I see Beyoncé as a rock star. [It’s] just people that break the rules and push the envelope without batting an eye. I do like some of the more traditional rock people like Jimi Hendrix and Nirvana.
