How would you describe interning for someone in the music industry?
It’s technically not an internship, just a gig I got through a cold LinkedIn message after reaching out to over 100+ professionals in the music business industry. It’s been an amazing experience thus far learning from my mentor/boss. He helped get Rihanna, Iggy Azalea, Katy Perry, and more get signed — all of whom attribute their initial success to him.

She’s a Swedish indie pop singer who’s making her American tour debut in Boston on February 1!
What type of Collegiettes would love her music?
If you like Amy Winehouse, Adele, or Lana Del Rey, you’ll love LÉON’s sound. She’s got a good mix of upbeat bangers and relaxed ballads. She’s got a voice like honey.
When is her upcoming show?
February 1st at The Sinclair
How much are the tickets?

What is your favorite song by LÉON?
“Tired of Talking” is her hit song with 40+ million streams on Spotify and I haven’t gotten tired of it yet. I especially love the A-Trak remix of it.
What else should Collegiettes know about you?
I also run a pop culture apparel brand called 1950 Collective. We were featured in the October issue of Seventeen Magazine. I’m also the president of the Carroll School of Management Honors Program.
