“Absolutely, simply based off of my last name. And that has—I think for me, especially for people who don’t know, like, music is my first passion. Like, I love music. I’m a singer, songwriter, I, like, I love music. I’ve been doing music since I was 13 years old, that’s the first time I ever wrote a song, I was 13.”

“From 13 up until 24, I have been trying to get into the music business. Trying to get into the Industry and all those years, it’s either been, you’re getting it because of who your dad is or you’re not gettin’ it because of who your dad is. I’ve been this close to a record deal, and when they found out who I was, it got swiped away.”
