Short description of your art.

I'm from Mistissini and my uncle is Samuel Mianscum and my dad is James Mianscum he plays bass in the Flaming Fire Ministries And I've been writing songs since 2018 I make short comedy skits and videos I'm working on films I make music And I'm an multi-instrumentalist

Where did you learn your art?

My dad taught me how to play drums when I was 2 and I had my own drum kit in my bedroom when I was 6. And I don't know how old I was when I started playing instruments with strings. I was in the 3rd grade and I think on Mondays we had music lessons and we had our own recorders. In one music lesson we had an ukulele and we learned Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. And at home I played that song on a bass guitar. My dad heard me and he said "Do it again." A day later my dad taught me the full song. In 2016 my cousin showed me a music video of Mikw Chiyâm and I would sing along to it. In 2018 I was listening to songs on the couch and I thought to myself "What if I could write songs, I think I can do it." So I closed my phone and I wrote my first song. It took about 2 or 3 months to write and the day after I finished my first song, I wrote another that took 2 days to write. The same year I started my first video skit. It was my Dads birthday and he was at work. My mom said "Call your dad so that he can blow up his candles" when I heard that I thought when he blows his candles and his candles exploded like bombs so I made a short video about that

Where do you find inspiration for your work?

It just happens randomly or a sentence in a conversation. An inspiration for a skit happens whenever my friend/family say something weird and I make a video about that. And the inspiration for a song are either the stuff that happened or whenever I play my guitar with random chords if I find something I like I write a song with those chords
