Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.
Cool Youth is my latest single – it’s hard to pigeon hole into a specific genre. It is electronica with hip-hop influences. It’s about the feeling of not fitting in but being perfectly fine with the fact.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.
As any creative will tell you, the constant barrage of criticism and self-doubt can be exhausting. Fortunately I’ve grown a lot in my self-confidence as an artist in the last 12 months.

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.
I’m a solo artist and I create and produce my own work. I wrote, recorded and produced “Cool Youth” in my own studio. It was mixed by my friend Haxx (Joyluck Studio / Kult Kyss). The music video was directed and edited by me. I had some friends help out with videography, make up, styling, and being extras. It’s good to work with friends.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.
