“So, I was booking all that. I didn’t do my own music. Like I tried writing here and there but I never thought I was good enough. I was like ‘I’m not going to be an artist, what’s an artist?’... No one in my family does music and like so I had, looking back I’ve realized I had a very limited view of the music industry and music in general and I’ve kinda learned that all in the last ten years, trying to catch up with everybody.” - Chelcie Jette
