7) Tell us about your latest track.
I just released a beautiful video for the Title track of my debut EP, called the 30th of February. This video was shot entirely during the pandemic with all the precautions and a lot of challenges. This song talks about the sweet high school love that almost all of us have experienced. Here’s the link to the song.
8) Which is your most preferred genre?
I prefer listening to a lot of genres like blues, the old classics, country, soul pop but I’m mostly into Indie.
9) How was life in quarantine?
Life in quarantine was not as tough as I thought it would be, luckily I was at home with my parents, so it was easier. Also, I learned a lot about myself and my songwriting. I wrote a lot of music, learned how to play the piano all by myself, met a lot of musicians online. Overall it was fun.
