Why did you go on a 3 year music and social hiatus?

After my 20th birthday I went through a deep intensive metaphysical transformation.


Why did you change your name?

I wanted an identity that I could own, something that would be a proprietary asset. After my transformation I simply wasn't the same person. My last moniker was generic and wasn't something I could build generational wealth upon.

Why do you use an avatar?

I want all the attention I receive to be directed towards my music. I'm not a emotionally immature girl that finds value in lustful patrons. I want my talent recognized, valued, and appreciated, Not trampled over by the mesmerizing stupor gaze I receive for my looks, I mean I've performed places and the audience were just left in a ghastly daze and had to be snapped back to reality to remember I am performing my music! I've watched people goes off in their own heads fantasizing about my physical image. My avatar was made in my image and she allows me to express and focus on my music purely.

What is your workflow like after your hiatus?

After my past experiences of recording in studios, I've decided to record myself and I'm teaching my self how to engineer and mix my own music.
