Need a gift for a gifted musician?
I am a self-producing rapper/ singer-songwriter. Originally from Dunedin, New Zealand, where I MC'd for the RAW Wenches, now studying performance music + audio production in Invercargill.
I'm all about experimenting and trying something new. If you like what you hear, chuck me a message, I love to collaborate.
I make genre-defying music from anything I stumble upon that makes noise. I try to leave all the little accidental things on the track to keep it raw. I am influenced by blues rock, hiphop, phsytrace, electro, organic,and noise music. Artists like Fiona Apple, Talib Kweli, Regina Spektor, Sia, the Kills, DoomTree, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the Black Keys, Minuit, Crystal Castles, and most importantly the people around me.
I compulsivley collect instruments. My songs feature live acoustic + electric guitar, drums, bass, piano, cello, flute, clarinet and counting. My plan is to be a one woman orchestra.
I am into rapping because of its powerfully direct and conversational delivery. It's an effective way to really say something, which is what I try to do with it.
I like writing music to explore social and political ideas. I write far too much about relationships :P But whatever it is, I try to be gut wrenchingly honest with my lyrics and approach it from a new angle.
I like to find words for the things that circulate in your mind but never quite make it out your mouth.
Im keen to jump on anyones track. If you want a chorus or a verse of rhymes in your song, hit me up!
