Tell us how to refine a demo to a mastered song.
As soon as I’m happy with the sound of my demo, I master it, and then it’s a mastered song. 🙂
Discuss the processing involved in creating a song.
Capturing the mood, the story, and the right chords/rhythm is the processing I do in order to create a song.
Elaborate on the themes of most of your songs.
The themes are always different because the stories are always different, so then the songs are always different.
Tell us your greatest musical works up to date.
If you are referring to the greatest in terms of chart-topping success, it would have to be a song I wrote for my wife called Mrs. Lawless, and a cover of the song Angel.
Tell us your future goals and how you aim to accomplish them.
One of my future goals is to play gigs outside of Europe. Continuing to work in the music industry and make connections will be the key factor to make that happen.
Tell us how you boost your performance.

Discuss how the instruments come together for a song.
Depending on the song I like to start with the guitar and go from there.

Tell us how you get inspiration.
Elaborate on your artist name and the title of the album.
