Hi Ike Rhein! Let's get right into it. What inspired “Summer Breeze?”

"Summer Breeze" was really just inspired by nature, and a joint effort between my team and I putting it together.

What is “Summer Breeze” about in your own words?

"Summer Breeze" is a song about a significant other that you can’t get enough of. It has a sound inspired by not wanting to be away from someone for long periods of time. When you’re around them it’s like a warmth or comfort that you can’t really compare to anything else aside from the warm summer air.

How did the music video for “Summer Breeze” come about? What was your vision for the video?

We had the vision of somewhere very tropical and beachy. We ended up shooting it in Puerto Rico!

What is your favorite lyric in “Summer Breeze” and why?

“Set a fire to my soul like a torch in me.” I think that line is very powerful and has amazing imagery!

What message do you hope fans take away from your music and from “Summer Breeze?”

I hope this is a summer anthem for my fans to just relax and have a good time!

What’s next for you? Are you working on any upcoming projects, or do you have any upcoming shows that we should be on the lookout for?

I have an EP coming out before the years end! I also will be going on Luh Kel's "Mixed Emotions" United States tour.

Where can we follow you on social media?






Apple Music:





Before you go, let's ask you something random, aside from "Summer Breeze." Who would be a dream to collaborate with?

I would love to work with Justin Bieber, for sure. I think our voices would be amazing together.

Thank you for the great interview; wish you much continued success!
