Empowerment Which Means

As an independent artist, you control the means of production, which is the ultimate form of empowerment.

Rich Musical Takes

Hip-hop is rich in musical allusion. It takes something that already existed, respects it, and reuses it.

Sure Albums Lot

A lot of people don't even listen to albums start to finish, but I do - for sure.

Anxious Means Even

Feeling anxious or depressed sometimes is part of what it means to be a person, and it might even be essential to success.

Spaghetti I Think Had

Even successful musicians have had periods where people say they suck and no one likes them, even after they've had periods of great success. So I think it's like you just gotta do you and try to stay motivated. Until, you know, you decide to stay home and make spaghetti all day.

College Very Supportive

A college degree is not essential, but if you're already in college, and if it's at all possible, you should definitely try to finish. In college, you have a very supportive community right there, and it can give you opportunities to try out new things.

About Concerned Very

I don't put a ton of time into my on-stage style, largely because I'm dumb about clothes. But I have friends who are very smart about clothes, and they teach me things. For the show, I'm mainly concerned with feeling comfortable, being able to jump around and get wild.

Kind Rap Indie

I hope people describe my music as lyrically driven, cross genre. Kind of alternative, kind of indie, kind of rap, kind of everything.

Places Still Even

Even the dark places are places. You're still somewhere.

World I Think Feels

I'm having this disbelief and dissatisfaction with an establishment that feels like it's moving backward, and I think there's a similar feeling with everyone of my age and in the world of music and artistic stuff. Art is an important way those feelings get expressed and help people process their feelings and opinions.

Back Show Constant

A constant goal of mine is to try to put myself back in the place when I wrote something - not just to perform it on a surface level, but to re-enter that headspace, that emotion. That's the point of a live show - for it to feel immediate and present and a little bit unpredictable.

- K. Flay

Very Academically Least

I was always very academically focused when I was growing up, and music was something for which I really had no preconceptions or expectations for myself or really any rules. It kind of represented, at least for me, a divergent path of creativity and self-discovery.

- K. Flay

Image Extent Adept

I'm intrigued by people who are super adept at manipulating their own image. We all do it to a certain extent.

- K. Flay

Rap Move Indie

I'm letting inspiration move me, in whatever direction it may, without concern if this sounds too rap or too indie, or there's too many words in it.

- K. Flay

Happy Feel I Think

The more time passes in your life, I think the greater you understand perspective. So I'm happy that I've had experiences that have reminded me that most exciting things might not feel so exciting later, and the most disappointing things might not be so disappointing later, either.

- K. Flay

Every Day Some Prolific

A good sign for me, that I'm a good spot mentally, is when I'm super prolific. And I just wake up every day excited to make or replicate music in some way. That's really nice.

- K. Flay

Without Line Fit

A friend of mine encouraged me to try rapping, so I started experimenting with it, writing verses, seeing if I could fit an extra word or syllable into each line without tripping myself up.

- K. Flay

Music More Making

More than anything for me, making music is about taking nothing and making something.

- K. Flay

Hope I Think Detriment

Mainly, I hope to inspire honesty. We live in a space where so much can be manipulated, and so much is expected to be manipulated - curated, contrived, edited. I think that's a real detriment to self expression and happiness in a lot of ways. In my mind, honesty and vulnerability is the way forward.

Show Generations Shake

Most of the people at my headline shows are in their 20s, but it varies a ton: like, I've had a six-year-old hug my leg after the show and a 60-year-old shake my hand. It's cool to see people connecting with the music across different generations.
