What would you say is your best attribute, and why?

Definitely my love for people and wanting to see them happy. It’s what keeps me grounded and keeps me working. I live for the moments that mean something, and I make my music for everyday people who go through everyday situations. So when a person comes to me and says ‘thank you for a certain song, it changed my life in a certain way,’ I feel whole.

Who or what inspires you?

Right now it’s my little brother and everybody who’s ever been through something, overcome it, and become a better person.Big Star
What’s your idea of a perfect date?

A chilled night where we can have a good conversation with good music and good vibes… something worth remembering.

What’s your favourite drink?

Oros!

What fills the spot at the top of your dream destination list?

Italy. Just so I can sit and have a cup of coffee on a balcony, and listen to the city below.

Do you have any regrets when it comes to past relationships?

Yes. Some relationships I rushed into too quickly, and others I was too immature to give a fair chance.

BigStarWho is your style icon?

I actually don’t have a particular style icon. Instead I get my sense of style from the streets. I even call my swag ‘street couture’.

Who is your WCW (Woman Crush Wednesday)?

Right now it’s the girl from Pitch – Kylie Bunbury.
