What story/emotional narrative does your music tell?
The day I sat down to write ‘One Day’ I had gotten a text message from a close friend about how they were in a bad place and had made an attempt on their life just the day before. It was during that moment I knew ‘One Day’ had to be a story about what One Day would bring. The song is a letter to a friend, a family member, or somebody you love. Somebody who needs to hear you say that “One Day, it will get better” It’s a hand reaching back into the snow to pull them out from under their drowning. To let them know they’re not alone in this world.
How does your music bring inspiration to the soul?
With my music, I try to be a voice for what I’ve coined ‘The Unheard’ The Unheard are those who go, well.. Unheard. Those dealing with intense mental illness, those who’ve been razed by domestic violence, and survivors of sexual abuse. As The Monarch of Clockbutterflies, I stand to be the wings for any butterfly not yet ready to own their voice. To speak their words until they are ready, to light the way.
Who inspires you? Who are your role models?
Hip-Hop in itself inspires me. The only reason I make music is Hip-Hop has been known for shaping the world around it, and there is a change I wish to bring. The one thing the entire world listens to is music, and hip-hop is the platform for rebellion. If I want to paint a better world for these butterflies, I needed a canvas.
Why do you want to be an award-winning Modern Soulful Musician?:
I would be honored to be an award-winning Modern Soulful Musician for the simple fact, any eyes on me are eyes on my cause. Any eyes on me are eyes I can show the problems. The world won’t change unless we show it the problem. To win even a single award for grant me a merit, a proof of concept of sorts. It would be a step in this fight against injustice. A brick in the world I want to build.
