THIS ISN’T A PHASE
As a performer and a queer artist, self expression and communication through appearance have always been extremely crucial to my growth. This is one of the main reasons I shaved my head, (mostly because I never liked my hair), but I wanted to invoke an inner strength on the outside that I felt was lacking on the inside. The theme of individuality vs society is very poignant in my art. I write music from a place of complete solitude, mostly unraveling the dark and vulnerable corners of my mind, but when I share it, I am reaching out and creating connection with those who experience the same thing. I have songs that deal with concepts of fear and introversion, and others about the fragility of relationships.I have always engaged in the fashion community as an observer and avid supporter. I was lucky to witness FAT last year and completely fell in love. To share my art in such an innovative and inclusive environment would be an honour. To me, this moment is an opportunity to merge my love of music, fashion, and performance and continue to build community.
