Being a Student Artist

Sup. Maybe you noticed that I dropped three singles, transformed all my social media accounts, created a website, and then dipped. Maybe you didn’t. Not gonna lie, I was hoping I could be more actively engaged in this whole music business thing while I was back at school, but frankly, school is hard. Being a student is always one of my top priorities because I know it’s going to equip me to be able to do this (and do it well) full time when I graduate, but I’m quickly realizing that self-care needs to be prioritized as well. It’s just not realistic to expect myself to be able to do my best in school while maintaining (somewhat) stable mental health and record, produce, and distribute the amount of music I want to. It’s not fair to me, it’s not fair to you, and it’s not fair to the music.

This past year has been one of incredible growth and learning, and every day I know more about myself and the world than I did the day before. One of these days, I’ll get the project that I started this summer out to you, but until then, I need to continue to work on the music, and continue to work on myself.

I appreciate your patience with me and all the support you’ve shown over these past few months. It makes me endlessly happy to see you guys listening to Summer Lover, His & Hers, and DTW. I can’t wait to share what’s next.

Thank you for sticking with me.
