Through her inspirations, Lavish begun to explore the ethos of music production and songwriting. Today, Lavish continues to write songs and perform at several events and conferences in cities such as New York, Florida, Washington D.C, Boston, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Sacramento, Atlanta, Minnesota, Illinois and London.
