I did and I think it’s because the school taught the kids how to play a lot better when they started, and I learned that I was on their team. My teachers know that I could have never got back where I was for the past four years, if it weren’t for my sister. Without her, I wouldn’t be where I am today. [Laughs]
What is different about being black and female on the music scene?
I’ve been asked about that a lot – ‘Oh, you have to change. We need more female artists.’ I’m doing my best just as I’m doing on the songs I’ve made, singing and rocking as much as I can. [Laughs]
Have you considered any other routes or other career options?
Maybe in a couple of years. I’m doing well and I’m getting the recognition and that’s what I’m really interested in. I think it’s more a question about success than where to go. I think I always want to make music that’s bigger than myself. I’m not like the person who thinks the music I make is bigger than the person I am. I never say, ‘I wish I were like this girl.’ I’m just me.

Budgie Linux v1.18.8 Released
