Q:  Who are you?
A: BAYLI . . . I like to write songs and i loveeee sushi 🤭 it’s my favorite

Q: Tell us about your playlist.
A: I love writing pop music so there’s a large influence from pc music in my playlist. I threw in most of the songs on replay on my phone right now. Charli XCX is there a few times . . . she’s the goat in terms of artists who are pushing their pen and inspiring new sounds for the youth with the help of people like SOPHIE. Also a lot of black girl excellence in there . . Rico Nasty, Bree Runway, Flo Milli, love them all dearly.

Q: What are you working on right now?
A: My upcoming ep! My next single is coming really soon and I just want to finally be able to put out music and creative that I feel confident about. I’m also writing for some really dope artists that I can’t wait for them to release . . .

Q: What are you working on next?
A: Who knows . . . It’ll definitely include writing more music and putting out songs for my fans to listen to. 

Q: What is the best sound?
A: Anything that’s authentic and pure! I’m also prone to artist who like the “push the envelope” creatively and those who aim to make the audience somewhat uncomfortable, as to inspire new emotions in people. Just from my playlist alone there’s quite a few different sounds, each authentic to that artist which is why I love everyone on there.

Q: What is your favorite part of your creative process?
A: My favorite part of the process is listening to my music a year after making it. I feel like it’s interesting to hear back what I was going through and feeling like at that moment in life. 

Q: What artist do you admire the most?
A: Georgia O’Keeffe!

Q: What is the greatest feeling in the world?
A: The greatest feeling in the world sometimes is hearing back a really well written track and sometimes it’s just taking a break from working on a song.

A: Some video on tiktok that that left my memory 5 seconds after.
