"I'm sure he will be proud of me."
"This journey began many years ago. I think the first memory about me that I remember is me actually holding a musical instrument in my hand! I remember my grandfather was a musician, and every time he played I looked at him with great admiration. Today he is not here to see what I create, but I’m sure he will be proud of me.
To be honest, I do not remember which musical instrument I first played, I think it was either a piano or a flute. After that, I picked up guitar, drums, harmonica, and all this harmony made me do something with it, and thus I started composing music. Today I am exploring a lot of music styles and each time with new music that I release I try to diversify my work.
"I believe that the songs that come from the heart come easily on the page."
When I’m working on a new project, I like to fully concentrate, which means coffee on the side, a pen that writes well, and lots of energy to sit for hours on the chair in front of the table. I believe that the songs that come from the heart come easily on the page, and that’s what’s beautiful about music!"
