Her second album, Elemental, was produced in November 2016 in collaboration with Keon Jeffrey of Klassic Music Ent. and a_phake of Future Crab Studios. The album, dubbed ‘a 10-track gem’ by the Trinidad Guardian, includes collaborations with jazz guitarist Theron Shaw, singer/songwriter Collis Duranty and saxophonist Courtney Fadlin.
