What inspired you to start doing music ?
I was born to do music and be a performer. Metallica inspired me to play guitar and Depeche Mode & Blondie inspired me to sing.
How would you describe your style or sound?
My style is a hybrid of melodic vocals & ambient sounds mixed with Electronic music, Progressive House, Deep House, Dubstep & Trance.
Could you tell us a little bit how your work on a song starts? (Lyrics or music, inspiration?)
I prefer to start a song by creating a melodic vocal melody over an instrumental track. Once I’m happy with it, then I’ll write lyrics over my vocal melody.
Which place / country / venue you wish to play and why?
I dream to play every music festival & venue around the world starting with Ultra Music Festival because they gave me the opportunity to perform back in 2004 and it would be nice to start my tour there. It will be like I’ve come full circle. EDC & all of the big night clubs in Vegas will be next on my radar since they provide a massive outlet for EDM Artist’s to perform.
