Studio Setup

“It changes each time! These days, I’ve been enjoying playing the drums! I never really played drums before in my life and now, all of a sudden, drumming Lotti is here! I’ve been enjoying starting songs with drum rhythms.”

Inspiration

“I am inspired by almost everything in my life~ but Lotti is a project where I dig deep in not only my own personal healing journey but also of the women around me. I am trying to find out through my music and being in this journey what it means to be truly free.”

“I am inspired by the greatest Classic Rock ballads–growing up in the Philippines I listened to a lot of Air Supply, The Carpenters, ABBA, Guns ‘n Roses & Queen-those records were always in the airwaves. I also listened to my Grandma’s favorite Artists such as Diana Ross, Olivia Newton-John, and Linda Ronstadt. As I’ve matured, I’ve found the sound of Sade, Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu to be my most favorite.”

Is collaboration an important aspect of your work or do you prefer to work alone? Please tell us about any memorable collaborations if so.

“I love collaborating with people I trust and respect. I think collaboration is key in producing and putting out great music this day and age. I like to work alone, usually when I’m trying to figure out lyrics to a song, or when I want to hone in on the story of what I’m trying to say.”

How do you approach lyricism in your work? What themes or stories do you like to explore?

“To me, lyrics is a gift from beyond. The lyrics to my songs usually come from the heart, less from my brain. I usually would freestyle, free-sing over a chord progression or a beat, and all of a sudden, words are coming out of my subconscious onto the mic.”

“I love exploring themes of identity. Themes of love and loss. Losing not only another person but a version of yourself. I love singing about finding peace and healing through the pain.”

What do you hope you’re audience takes away from your shows?

“I want my audience to take away that they can do whatever the hell they want to do if they put a lot of effort in it! I want them to feel that they are not alone and that they are seen and loved and supported.”

Do you use your music as a platform for social or political commentary? If so, what messages are important for you to convey?

“Absolutely both. Music is the greatest catalyst for change and empowerment. I want to express over and over again that we are not limited by genres, or stereotypes or how people see us. And we shouldn’t let them!”
