I never understood who I was, never thought I was good enough, never
thought I’d get anywhere. Growing up my family was
ethnically diverse. My grandmother was native to Algeria, my grandfather
former Yugoslavia. My mother was born in France, my father Canadian. I
didn’t quite know where I belonged.
My father had this old Hewlett Packard computer with this bootleg copy of
fruity loops, I’d spend hours making beats. I couldn’t stop creating. I didn’t
start singing until after my mother's death, it was the only way I could unpack
my emotions. I became colder than the winter that she left. I fell in a
downward spiral and would eventually have to face the depression that
swelled inside. I tried everything I could to numb myself to the pain but it only
made it worse.
I began filtering my struggle into music, I felt repaired analyzing the things
that tore me up. I began constructing a world that I could find solace in. The
first song I had ever finished was BADCHILD. I had written and produced it in
3 days and thrown it online. I moved to Toronto not knowing anyone, just on a
gut instinct. I lived out of an old rehearsal space with a hot plate and an air
mattress, and when the air mattress burst I slept on the floor. BADCHILD took on a different
meaning to me. It was about finding redemption in my failures. BADCHILD is
about not being good enough, not living up to expectations, it’s about trying
to be a better person.
