When did you realize that music was your path?
All my life since childhood I have been singing, composing and writing songs. As a child I spent most of my time in this beautiful world, making up my own songs and performing them as well in concerts arranged for a choir, solo and on the radio. As an adult I studied music at the university and found another way of approaching and analysing songs. Good melodies and poetry has always attracted me and colors the day whatever I am doing.
Do you have a workflow on how you make your music and lyrics?
To me music, love and friendship goes hand in hand. I believe you can feel the good vibes in my music coming from the warm people playing it and the way it was carefully produced. Please enjoy the way the traditional instruments are combined with a modern sounds.
Catchy melodies come flying to me in a natural way, and I hear them in my head with beautiful sounds. I used to write them all down. But now after getting the opportunity to be able to record them immediately in my studio, it sometimes happens that I record them directly and skip the paper. In a way that feels just as natural as when I was a child and composed while recording on my tape recorder. Composing is a process in constantly change, just like the songs.
What can you say to your listeners?
Are you a hopeless romantic? Then please enjoy my lyrics and my music. Music is such a big part of my life, and I’ld be happy to share that world with you! Music is what feelings sound like! Thank you for listening and follow this lovely path with me.
