What do you want people to take away from your music?
SL: I want people to take the fact that I am a person going through life as well. I do not want to create the illusion of being perfect or having the perfect lifestyle. I want them to see my imperfections, that I too have issues going on in life. I go through the stages: depression, anger, but also happiness, excitement and love. I go through all those things and I want listeners to feel connected and feel that they have a friend.
What is your mantra for life?
SL: I have it already! LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE. That’s it! Everyone is different. Everyone is unique. Everyone believes in different things. My mantra is a BE who you are statement. It’s an acknowledgment of the light inside of you and how special you are as a person.
