* Oh, she’s also the daughter of Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and, according to her web bio, has been singing and performing since she was 5.

* A singer-songwriter, she’s already released three singles, “Lay Low” in 2020 and “See Me Now” and “Colors” from last year. You can check out music videos for “Lay Low” and “See Me Now” on her official YouTube channel.

* Impressively, she celebrated 666,000 streams of her music on Spotify at the end of the year. “Lay Low” is largely responsible, with more than 500,000 streams on Spotify to date. You can check it out below.
