Tell us about yourself.
I’m not superficial. I’m melancholic with a sense of humor.
I know one thing. Life is very big and complicated. And mostly it’s a fight. But it always moves on. I feel like a student of life. And music helps to understand it.

Tell us about yourself as an artist.
I just love to write songs and the whole process. I like to practise and then I love to play in front of a good audience.

Tell us about the genre of your music.
It’s Pop with Soul and R&B influences.

.

.

.

Tell us about the story behind your song.

It’s about love. I’m remembering the time when we didn’t know if a girlfriend of mine is going to survive cancer. It’s about the time we had until the disease kicked in, and our desperation. And how deep love can be when you’re close to death. “With you it feels right.”

Tell us about the recording and production of the song.
I played “Remember” twice in the studio. But I worked for one year on the song. The recording was spontaneous. I came to the studio and I wanted to make another song and the label needed to have some video material. So I sat down at the piano and started singing. I am happy that the producer made the sound and everything worked.

Tell us more about your music career, experience and future goal.
I gigged a lot in small bars. It’s good to stay focused.
I think the music business is very hard. But once you start you have to finish it.
My future goal is to write more songs and be able to go to the studio without thinking of money. And like every songwriter; I wish to make a Number 1 Hit!

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.
Life is giving so much inspiration. And surely love. There are millions of nuances, you can write about.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.
I have never made a hit song until now. But I think a good hook is half of the secret.

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.

.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.
I get inspired by life. I need to be alone and try to find some chords, or lyrics or both at the same time; I try to find a melody. I work for hours. And most of the time I’m not happy with the first drafts. Sometimes it takes me one year for one song, sometimes just 20 minutes. Then I practise the song for a long time and eventually try to forget about it. Then I sing and practise again. When I’m still happy and have the money I will go and record it. I speak with my producer and then I record. Mostly I don’t need many takes because preparation is the biggest point.
