So let’s go back to when it all started…
It all started off very harmless; I always enjoyed listening to music and making music. I used to sing in the school choirs and school bands; whenever there was an opportunity to sing I was first in the row. In the third grade, I then started going for guitar lessons, which I didn’t enjoy that much at that moment, but looking back, it influenced my current playing a lot. I went for lessons for three years, and then eventually stopped going because I wanted to play and sing other songs than the ones my teacher suggested to me. From there on I started learning on my own, and I also started writing songs. And here we are today, this thing called music that I always enjoyed doing just developed into this passion of mine, into this friend I can always turn to.
Were you in any music bands before moving on as a solo artist?
Ha ha, yes I was. You’re bringing back some memories… Well, the first band I was in was in secondary school, the school band. And then in high school, I was in a jazz school band, but I also kind of started my own band, gathering some people I knew from secondary school. We called ourselves Fallout Queens, and we did a few little gigs.
