What inspired you to get into music?

How would you describe your music?
My genre is pop music and it will most likely continue to be pop music if I write more songs in the future. The kind of songs I am to write are relatable to young people my age.
What would you say is your recording and song writing style?
Usually before recording I practice my vocal exercises while my dad sets up the recording equipment we’ve always used the app Garage Band, since the recording process is very simple and its easy to use but most like things it can be developed. That is why sometimes we still need to master the recordings.
