Right now I’m listening to me (lol)! If you haven’t, check out my song “Islands”, the single off of my upcoming EP, OASIS. (Www.noidolmusic.com/oasis) But really I wish that alternative, synthy electro R&B got more shine. If you’ve ever met me you know how in love I am with ABRA. She’s the inspiration behind me making my own beats! But I’ve also been a huge fan of Kelela for yearssss. They need to get more shine!! About two years ago got tapped in to Ravyn Lenae ⚡️✨💕 if I could see them all in concert I’d probably fall asleep and dream the dreamiest dream that night lol Who are y’all feeling right now?

In DIY Space
Which do you think is best? I’m keeping it real, I use GarageBand and I’m not planning on switching any time soon but I will say that I can’t deal with FL studio but that’s mostly out of laziness lol.

Pretty much every creative person I've ever chopped it up with has an artist, an album, or a song that impacted them growing up. For me, I had such a wide range of tastes that sometimes it's hard. But I can say for sure one of them was India.Arie. Her albums Voyage to India and Testimony: Vol. 1 came out when I was a little girl. The Neo-Soul explosion of the early 2000s is the soundtrack of my pre-pubescent childhood and I think a lot of the themes about love, blackness, testimony and healing followed me into my own artistry. I was really feeling India.Arie's smooth, warm voice and I remember trying to emulate while learning how to sing. But the whole Neo-Soul era really influenced the way I carry myself as an artist and Black person...I think that whole vibe imprinted on me. What about y'all? I was also repeatedly playing so much hip-hop. Mos Def "Black on Both Sides", Nas "Illmatic", that Jay-Z & Linkin Park collab album (that was crazy af and still is fire to me lmfao). Also Kanye West "College Drop Out". When I was 14 I discovered The Pharcyde and bumped them forever.
