What would be your dream support gig? Bonus points for place/venue.
I would love to support Kiana Lede. I followed her career specifically when she was supporting Ella Mai on tour. I was living vicariously through her social media of what it’s like to be on tour with a major artist and have so much change for you because of it. It would be full circle if I ended up doing the same for her. Plus I love her music. In fact, this is me trying to speak that into existence now.
Tell MoggBlog viewers about your latest release! What’s the inspiration behind that?
The title is a play on words. I was tongue tied literally and figuratively. I was giving the wrong person my affection knowing I shouldn’t. But I could never say no because I was so infatuated. I kept the vibe fun and light because that’s how I felt.
How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?
In some ways I hate it, other ways I’m grateful. I love the ability to get started without a label and reach a more specific niche audience. But I hate the pressure to overshare and exploit your personal life.
