For fans who have never heard your music, can you pick a few words to describe it?! Love and Joy
What is your favorite part about being an artist? Is it songwriting, performing, recording, something else? Tell us why. I’m highly sensitive which often costs me a lot of energy. I’m making music that is driven by a desire to motivate, inspire, comfort, and spread love and joy to all those that hear it. All those positive feedback for the songs I made, fills back my energy.
Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing? That’s easy. I enjoy listening music . Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why? Definitely Alfred Heinrichs because he is really talented, and his music took me the past 10 years through all my ups and downs. Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it? “I will be there” is the most emotional track for me. I left my wife and the children after 19 years relationship and marriage. Specially to leave the children and break the old and familiar family system, was bringing myself to emotional limits. “I will be there” send the message to my children and also to my ex wife that I will be there for them, even when I left now.
Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year? Most notable is my collaboration with Anam Hermit and The Italian Job Remix. Anam is a fantastic singer and songwriter. And Carlo, the man behind the Italian Job Remix, is a very talented and experienced producer. The track "Confuso e Confucio" is a great production and we think it has the potential to become a number one hit in Italy and far beyond the borders.We already agree that the production was so much fun that we definitely want to continue our cooperation.
