Where are you currently based?

In the Mornington Peninsula. By the beach.

How did you first start playing music?

Thanks to my musical family and always enjoying listening to music in the car driving around.

What’s been happening recently and how has your Covid experience been so far?

It’s been ok! I’ve been picking up recording, so now I am doing it all on my own. Mixing and all the instruments. And also I got into Uni for music!

Your new single ‘Treading Water’ is out March 8, what influenced the sound and songwriting?

It’s very inspired by Julien Baker’s song ‘Funeral Pyre’ and it’s inspired by motion of water and the beach.

How did you go about writing Treading Water?

It is very literally inspired by swimming at the pool and beach, then it has the double meaning of treading water in your mental health.

How did you approach the recording process?

All done by me in my bedroom, I did it quickly just in the one day. I’m not really a perfectionist, I’m good at knowing when to let things go.

Where and when did you record/produce/master and who with?

I recorded it solo, then it is mixed by Calvin Lauber, we have worked together before on my solo song ‘Asphyxiation’ from my album Nihilism, and I just loved how it came out. So I reached out to him again.

What programs/instruments did you use?

I used my fender telecaster and recorded into GarageBand and Calvin mixed it in protools.

What does Treading Water mean to you?

It is a time capsule of my summer and metaphor for my mental health.

Who are you listening to at the moment?

Sooo much Montaigne, saw her at Summer Salt and it was awesome. Montaigne has such a magnificent voice and explosive songs.

What do you like to do away from music?

Lots of walks on the beach and animal crossing.

What’s planned for 2021?

After this song, I will be really focusing on my Composition course in Melbourne.

Favourite food and place to hangout?

Nandos!! I love the music they play, the food is 10/10. Also Belles Hot Chicken in Melbourne has most amazing vibe and best food.
