What attracted you to your artistic discipline?

Madonna! My mother died of brain cancer and through research and then working with the NGO, International Brain Research Organization (IBRO), I learned the many benefits of music and learning an instrument. In fact, the arts in general are an avenue to longevity and improved quality of life.

Where do you find your inspiration?

I find inspiration in my family, the books I read, and everyday struggles, the arts or just an unexpected night out.

Do you have any practical advice for fellow professional artists?

Invest in your art just as you would in any education, give it time and know that failure is just another word for “you are not ready yet” but most important do it because you love it.

What projects are you currently working on/just finished working on?

I’m currently working on my next album, Misdemeanors. The song, So You’re Goin’ to California, is the lead single off this album, slated for release in early 2019. I also manage the Mexican artist Shiadanni and we are working on some pretty exciting things for her new album. It is really rewarding to help another artist realize their vision. It is both inspiring and challenging.

Any last notes you would like to share with the public?

Yes, check out the new single, So You’re Goin’ the California, on Spotify and Youtube.

ELAN is an official minority language organization within a country that recognizes two languages as official. ELAN is located in Tiohtiak:ke, the original name for Montreal in Kanien’keha:ka, the language of the Mohawk—also known as Mooniyang, which is the Anishinaabeg name given to the city by the Algonquin. While we are based in this city, our projects have also taken place in many regions across Quebec.

We acknowledge the colonial origin of English and French in Canada, and recognize that both languages benefit from official status throughout the land. The province that we know as Quebec is an amalgamation of the traditional territories of the Innu and Inuit nations, Algonquian nations, as well as the Mohawk nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Kanien’keha:ka and Anishinaabeg are but two of the original languages of this province; Atikamekw, Cree, Inuktitut, and Innu-aimun are also among the many Indigenous languages spoken across Quebec as majority languages, all well before French and English.

ELAN acknowledges the important work being done by First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples to revive the traditional languages of these territories, and their advocacy for the official status of Indigenous languages.
