Now as I’ve found my own taste, style and love for other musicians – some of my favourites include fellow Canadians Lennon Stella and JP Saxe, but I also love Conan Gray, Olivia Rodrigo, and Holly Humberstone to name a couple!

Guilty pleasure song:

Always will be ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ by Journey. Never not going to love that song!

Live shows are finally coming back which is really exciting, but honestly, I don’t have a ritual! I guess we’ll see what happens when getting back into the groove of performing 🙂

There are so many great musicians in Calgary, some that I’m lucky to call friends! But some awesome names are Marcus Trummer, Elle McAndrews, Jared Daniel & Liz Christensen. This city is filled with great art and talent!

A place I’ve only gone to for some special occasions but is absolutely incredible is Lonely Mouth Bar on 17th Ave. Absolutely mouth-watering food haha.

Favourite street in your city:

I’m really an out-of-city girl, but I have felt very creatively inspired by 17th Ave. Especially my favourite place Socality House which is an incredible hub for creators. I feel like especially in the summer 17th Ave just has great energy!

Is it cliche to say Prince’s Island Park? Because it’s the only name I know…. Haha

Favourite music venue in your city:

Playing at The National Music Centre is pretty surreal. incredible sound and venue!
