Born to a jazz pianist, her connection with music began at a very young age. Based in Amsterdam, her creativity was influenced by artists like Michael Jackson and the gospel genre, although her interests have expanded to other genres, culminating in the eclectic or alternative R&B that characterises her today. Between 2020 and 2021, she released a series of singles, but during those times, she was going through a bout of depression that prompted her to slow down and take some time for self-care. And from this, Securely Detached was born, an EP that is almost a ‘documentary’ of her hiatus to reclaim her life and learn to focus on herself. Dame confesses that she speaks about reevaluating her codependent relationships and the process of learning to prioritise oneself.
