What’s a typical day in the studio like for you?
A typical day in the studio for me definitely consist of the speakers knocking until the right beat is found, once that’s done the writing process beings until it’s time for recording.

I feel like it depends, being a independent artist it’s complicated because there’s others stuff I have to do other than record every day, but when it comes time to writing and recording I feel like I can do it any day of the week. The only thing is that depending on my how my mood is that day influences the type of music I make that day in terms of energy.
