1.      Describe your sound to us in three words only 

honey, jazzy, spacey

2.     Tell us about the concept behind the song “Skin Crawl”-How did it come together?

after years of coming to terms with my history of sexual harassment and traumas, my drink got spiked in NYC and I was fed up and needed a way to work through my thoughts & experiences regarding being a woman and having your body be an open invitation for harassment in clubs, on the street, wherever. the song is about the ‘little things’ ; the words, touches, looks. striving for a world where women can feel safe and cosy in social environments.

3.     Everyone has their one favourite genre of music- what’s yours and why?

I have a lot of favourites, but I guess electronic music has played a big role in my life in the last 5 years, being able to go out and dance for hours is an important thing for me.
