A:My next project that I’m releasing will not be in English.

A:This was actually a really tough question but if I had to chose one I would have to say Post Malone’s Beerpongs and Bentley’s.

Q: What do you enjoy specifically about A.L.I.E.N Entertainment? 

A:My brothers Ben and Lito have been talking about A.L.I.E.N since the first day I met them a little over 2 years ago. What I most enjoy about it, is watching them have their hard work and commitment come to fruition in the form of an awesome entertainment brand that can be a good outlet for anyone creative.

Q:What is a long term goal with your career? 

A: I just want to make timeless music and have that take me wherever it wants.

Q: When did you know music was going to be a big factor in your life?

A:When I started playing the piano and singing to girls lol.

Q: What made the guitar your instrument of choice? 

A:The piano is actually my first instrument of choice, but the guitar is so on the go and has been part of my vision of me on stage since I was about 8-9. I really feel the guitar in my body when I get into it. I want I people to feel as close to what I feel as they can when they watch me play so I’ve been making it part of my identity as an artist.
