SNEAK PEAK INTO THE EPISODE
On the school system: “Especially in the school system in this country, we’re very much put into boxes and meeting people from different walks of life really opened me up and made me think actually can do whatever I want”
On studio etiquette when you're training: "The ones that last know how to quickly adapt. They know when to share their opinion and when to shut up."
On finding identity: “Screw all that! What music do you want to make? What do you want to do with your music? Wanting people to like the music shouldn’t be the driving force. Never lose sight of that. All the artists I know who have done well in the industry are people who totally did it on their own terms. People listening are infused by that. They don’t hear compromise in the music. They hear someone doing what they want to do and that’s interesting.”
