Q. You have some fabulous looks.  We really love your photos. What are some of your favorite hairstyles and designers?

A. Thank you so much for your kind words, I think you can never go wrong with a sleek bob with a middle part. I’m actually more into makeup, but some of my favorite fashion houses are Louis Vuitton and Chanel. I’m currently obsessed with Rihanna’s Fenty collection.

Q. Who are some of your favorite musical influences from back in the day and what artists do you like to listen to that are on the radio these days?

A. I love Aaliyah, Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, and Michael Jackson. Currently, I’ve been listening to a lot of Danileigh, Bruno Mars, Kiana Ledé, Sabrina Claudio, and Megan Thee Stallion.

Q.  How would you describe your personality and is there a difference between your onstage and offstage personality?

A. Offstage, I’m more of a quiet, subdued individual. I don’t really have a big “look at me personality” but onstage, I feel a lot  freer with the attitude of just having fun.

 

Q. What is the message that you want to promote to your fans?

A. Just be yourself. I know in this social media age, it makes hard, but I feel like there’s something beyond us all and it’s truly inspirational to see someone who’s doing them, instead of following the crowd.

Q. How did your record deal come about?

A. I decided to put myself out there and started doing a lot of YouTube covers and uploading on my social media. I got the attention of Slip-N-Slide Records.  They really take time in actually building an artist’s brand and making you  feel like family. I recorded  my first single, “Friday Night” ft. Sage the Gemini,  and it did really well.  I’ve been growing with Slip-N-Slide ever since.

Q. Are you on social media a lot? If so, what’s your favorite platform and why?

A. Yes, I am. Hands down Instagram @teenearr. I feel like it’s an easy platform to get your art out and connect with your supporters.

Q. What are some of your favorite interests outside of music?

A. I love all things makeup and beauty! But, I’m also obsessed with baking, I make a bomb Chocolate Ganache.

Q. What inspires you, musically?

A. I want my music to be relatable, so life in itself inspires me. Personally, my family, friends, and experiences inspire me.
