Words From Karla Torres:

"I knew I wanted to make music since I was a little kid trying to get my hands on any

instrument to make noise. I first picked up the violin, then guitar, then started working in digital audio workstations. I found myself molded by my life experiences and by the

artists I grew up admiring. I’m constantly changing, finding new sounds, new ways to

make words rhyme — every new song is a chance for me to understand the world a

little better." Any advice for an aspiring musician?

"I’d tell other musicians that fear is the most natural part of this process. The anxiety

about diving headfirst into making music ends up being the most comforting thing about it because its the only thing that doesn’t change. Embrace the uncertain and play your fucking heart out."
