“Everybody has a right to like what they like, but I didn’t truly discover who I was until I was forced to create it for myself. I didn’t find out what my voice could really do until I experimented on my own. I didn’t know I had this music inside me until I was left to my own devices. Everything I am today, musically, really is because I followed the beat of my own drum.”
