Nose Hill or Fish Creek??

Fish Creek! I grew up near the area so it definitely feels like home!

EP or LP?

I would love to do both! Super excited for the day I do a full LP project. I think that would be such a cool experience to write and produce.

Early bird or night owl?

I used to be an early bird but I have for sure become more of a night owl.

Road or studio?

Both are amazing. I for sure have more experience in studio and I have some of the most amazing memories.
