Give us a brief insight into music and music something you always wanted to do?
Yeah it was something I always wanted to do but early on in the journey it didn’t seem possible. There weren’t many people around me that made it in music. I was just trying to see how I can make something impossible work. I always wanted to do it from the beginning, I kind of just stuck to it. Like I would get a job, then quit my job then get another job, then quit my job. It was very hard.
