Written by on February 11, 2019

So where are you from.?

So I am originally from Montreal, Canada. I moved around as a kid and I landed in laval which is a suburb of Montreal. I represent the whole montreal metropolitan area. 

Tell us about how you got your start?

It all started by magic. I was in church one day and the youth choir said, Hey we need tenors you should come. I said “Okay!” 2 years later I picked up the guitar and the rest is history..!

What is your Production/writing process?

It depends. Sometimes, I can have a melody in my head, other times I can have lyrics. Most of the time, when its a real song that means to me, It can take me up to a couple weeks to finish up. Theres no real process, i have to feel it in my heart and soul and love it myself before I can release it to the world. I sometimes have problems with acceptance, hoping people will like it.

You have a very unique sound tells how you found that pocket?

Thank you ! I mix the simplicity of pop, the freshness of hip hop/RnB and the way everyone can relate to the blues/soul/country music. All together you can’t go wrong haha!

Can you tell us about how your new single came about? 

Ohh! haha It was a rainy day where I put myself in a situation where I let a childish girl make me look stupid. I know some girls that made a guy drive 40 mins to their hotel room and where he got there it wasn’t the right one and they never picked up. No one deserves to be treated that way. Women like that are worth less than a penny in a fountain.

Where in L.A is your Dream venue to play a sold out show?

I would definitely love to play at the Staples Centre because thats where many legends put their seat and tears whether it comes to Basketball players or musicians or comedians. Its just a place packed with energy and love. I would love to ride that wave !

Tells us about some of your inspirational spots in L.A?

Wherever the water goes, There I am !
My most inspirational spots in LA have to be near the water. Santa Monica, Venice Beach, Malibu, Manhattan Beach, Long beach you name it. I love it. I find that water bring me a tranquility and makes me feel so small. Every time i feel that small i feel like im in a good zone to write great content. I am still discovering more about the cit but lately Melrose has been getting to me a little bit.

Who’s in your Top 5 MCs of all time?

Kanye West


Jay Z


Bone Thugs

Tell us about your first gig?

My first gig was a complete Blessing ! I played in jail for some inmates and I wanted to inspire them to live a better life. It wasn’t like what they portray in the movies to be honest. It was more real and down to earth and They respect me over there too now haha!

What more can we expect from you?

A revolutionary ride. I plan on changing the world one person at a time. Its a hard and long process so give me some time. But Ill get there and the day I do, I won’t miss my shot, You’ll see through the sky !

What do you want to be remembered for?

The one who never gave up and always found a way. The free spirited crazy mofo who never was afraid of anything and always attacked head first. No matter the circumstances, he always looked forward and made it through only with the help of God .
