Tell us about yourself as an artist.
I’m fascinated by space and time and write songs about it.

.

.

.

Tell us about the genre of your music.
Art , pop electro and alternative acoustic…I like to mix things around.

.

.

.

Tell us about the story behind your song.
It’s about facing all the challenges from your own demons to all the madness in the word…and always trying to get back up and survive rather than letting yourself fall in a downward spiral.

.

.

.

Tell us about the challenges you are facing as a musician.
Well many but here’s the main one….paying my rent at the end of the month.

.

.

.

Tell us about the recording and production of the song.
I work with my talented partner in crime Marc Olivier. I write all the music and lyrics. For “Escalade”, I programmed the beats and recorded all synths…then Marc recorded the vocals and guitars, produced the song and mixed it. We are a good team. He makes things sound big!

.

Tell us the names of blogs, radio or TV stations that have supported you so far.
Seen London, Le Cool Barcelona, Rockerilla…many radios and web zines in Montreal and Barcelona.

.

Tell us more about your music career, experience and future goals.
I have been writing songs and performing for a while now. I have collaborated with other artists, filmmakers. I produced a choir, I have done many artist residencies, and I have toured all over Europe recently.
I would love to be a character and sing in a David Lynch film. I always want to get better at what I do… work with interesting visual artists, always stay true to myself and would love to play big Festivals obviously. I would also love to play with an orchestra one day.

.

.

.

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.
Life, death, space, time, lust, fears, dreams… it keeps me sane and gives me the ability to somehow cope with our world. So I must keep doing it as much as I can.
.

.

.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.
That’s not really important to me honestly. If people think one of my songs is a hit, then great but I never write a song and follow the hit format. What’s important to me is that people experience something strong when they see me perform and that we connect on another level. The song, you just keep working on it until it feels right.

.

.

.

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.
Follow your gut, practise all the time and don’t listen to people’s opinion on what you should do, especially those who put you down.

.

.

.

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.
The best recognition is when a fan comes to see you with tears and say thank you for making them experience something that made them to feel so alive…that’s better than any awards.

.

.

.

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.
It’s always a different process as each song is different. For the writing and composing, I need to be in a certain state of mind, in my little bubble. For the recording since a couple of years I started working with Marc who takes care of the technical stuff and lets me do my thing. He’s basically the only person I can work with. He understands where I want to go and helps me to get there.

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day.
There are many of both… making music and being with my loved ones makes me happy everyday. And sad days, I will keep that to myself.

.

.

.

 

Tell us about your song.
It’s an upbeat, electro in your face. Dangerous, theatrical, seductive and fearless anthem. Hypnotizing and weird but still has a catchy chorus.

.

.

.

You just try to do it all.

.

.

Tell us your future plans pertaining music.
Keep writing music and perform as much as I can.

.

.

.

Tell us what you think about creativity and originality in music.
I think we are in an era where people are playing it safe. Originality is definitely lacking but I also think that people in the business are not willing to push originality. They don’t take risks anymore. But there are always some artists here and there that have strong personalities and do their own thing.
.

.

.

Tell us the reason you are into music.
I suck at everything else.  I just can’t imagine doing anything else honestly.

.

.

.

Tell us your view on old school music and new school music in terms of preference.
No doubt about old school; learning from those who started it all…It’s a must. But I’m always open to hear new things and get inspired by what I don’t know.

.

.

.

Tell us your most memorable day as an artist.
Performing at Glastonbury was pretty cool. But just writing a song in your little world is a memorable thing and you feel really excited about it.

Tell us what you would do for the people if you found yourself in a position of power.
