HEY! Carmelita: What inspires your music ?
“I am inspired by everyday people experiencing love, heartbreak, and everything in between. I love writing about people and their relatable experiences. I studied film and acting, with a major in live performance, so writing for me is a way to creatively tell stories from my own perspective, but mostly it’s about the experiences of those around me. I love being able to express the feelings and emotions that people are too afraid to share or speak about, yet need or want to hear.”
