 C-A-C: Can you tell us about the story behind “Brown Girl Chronicles”?

RH: Brown Girl Chronicles was written by me about my experience of being a brown girl in the music industry and the experiences I had with tokenism. It was produced by Willstah, Solo and mixed by DjSabio. For me Brown Girl Chronicles holds a story which I found was important to share.

 RH: From Bigsound I took performing and networking skills! As well as new connections!

 C-A-C: Do you have any rituals before you get on stage? How do you prepare for a performance?
