Talk to us about your latest single!
I just released my newest single "SUPERPOWER" on October 10th for World Mental Health Day. "SUPERPOWER" is about struggling with mental help, but realizing that even on your worst days, you still deserve to believe in yourself. When anxiety is suffocating you and depression is weighing you down, your resilience, your drive, your self love is your superpower. Your self-love is your superpower.
Why did you pick that name for the single?
I chose the name "SUPERPOWER' because of a profound conversation I had with a friend back in 2016 or 2017 back when I lived in DC about mental health. It was an empowering conversation. She told me, it's like we have superpowers. And she's right. We each have something totally unique to us that we bring to the table. We all have our own superpower.
Does it ever get stressful when you have to come up with a title?
So far it hasn't. I love coming up with titles. The titles are usually what come to me first. It's the main idea of the song and then I'll go from there.
What was challenging about the single?
Writing the lyrics was the most challenging for "SUPERPOWER". The song came from a dark place, but I wanted the final take away to be uplifting and empowering. I had the concepts and knew what I wanted to say, but finding the right delivery was difficult and took a lot of time. I had a fantastic co-writer named Juliet Piper and together we made something really magical; something that I feel perfectly expresses what I mean to say and what I want my listeners to know.
What kind of journey do you want to take your fans on when they listen to the song?
I want fans of the song to go on a self reflecting/self discovery journey. I want them to connect with what makes them who they are.
What can you not wait for about your upcoming music?
Right now I'm really excited because there's a "SUPERPOWER" music video in the works, It's been so exciting working on it and I can't wait to release it in early 2022.
Favorite reaction so far to the single from those who have heard it?
I'm just so thrilled that all the reactions have been so positive. I love that listeners have shared with me how encouraging and relatable they find "SUPERPOWER". I'm so happy that "SUPERPOWER" helps listeners feel good and seen.
How does everyone go to listen when it's out?
