I was inspired to make music since I was 7 because my aunt is a songwriter.
I can hit baritone notes, and I can sing in the soprano range if I wanted to. I did this thing a long time ago where I did a duet with myself. I sound like two different people.
I always say I never felt 'latched' to a gender. I just kind of always felt like myself, and I never felt like I had to do certain things or be a certain way to fit into a certain mold.
My friends freaked out when I posted 'I'll Never Be Able To Love' on Facebook.
Nina Simone had such an androgynous voice; the first time I listened to her I thought it was a man, and I'm sure a lot of people listening to me think I'm a woman. Her voice is kinda like the poster child for me.
I think as long as you wear your imperfections on your sleeve, people respect it more.
If I were really being myself. I'd just curl up in the corner and knit.
Ever since I was little, I showed traits of both masculine and feminine energies. Androgyny was never something that I thought about or tried for.
If you're 100% yourself, then you're going to be different no matter what. I have this self-honesty approach as opposed to an ego that a lot of musicians put up. I can be myself, and that's just enough to stand out.
As far as long-term goals, one of my favorite artists ever is Tegan and Sara, because every single one of their albums sounds different. Or Beck. I want to be like that because I come from so many different types of musical backgrounds.
