𝟭. Where are you from and what are your hobbies?
I‘m german-italian, with my dad being german and my mom being Italian, but I’ve lived in Germany my whole life. My hobbies include sports, mainly Dance, which also encouraged me to go on and study sport science. Apart from that I really like to read fantasy books, to be honest I’m a huge book-nerd!
𝟮. How did your get into music?
I started young, playing some basic instruments like any other child and then went on to play the drums for around 5 years. Encouraged by my former music and choir teacher in school I then soon realized that singing suited me way better, so I started taking singing lessons and later chose it as a main emphasis for my "Abitur" (which is the german Final school years and exams).
𝟯. Who are your biggest influences?
An artist I really look up to is Sia. She has a great voice, being a trained singer I really admire that. Even though my music is nothing like hers right now I love nearly each of her songs and listened to them a lot as a child in my parents car. She was probably one of the main drives that led me to singing.
4. What are your goals in the music industry?
I‘m a very ambitious person but I also try to be realistic. So my goals for the near future are having a little fanbase that really enjoys all of my songs and can’t wait for next releases, maybe big enough to host small concerts from time to time, that would be great. It is a childhood dream though, to perform on a big stage at least once so, in the back of my mind, that’s where I’d really love to be one day. But for now growing a considerable fanbase is where I want to get, then I’ll see further.
5. If you could choose a location to perform at, what would it be?
I‘d really love to perform in the Olympiastadion in Munich. Growing up outside the city I used to go to gymnastics events there every new year and remember admiring the big grandstands and the huge stage down below. There have even been huge concerts there with stars like Shawn Mendes. So as it‘s THE concert stage of my city it would really be a dream come true to perform there.
6. What is your all-time favorite song?
That’s a tough one. I switch favorite song every few month, there are so many that I really don‘t know which one to pick. But I guess I’ll go with the "California Dreamin" cover by Sia. In my opinion it‘s all in all a masterpiece and I love the build-ups and the potential of the vocals.
7. Most embarrassing moment?
I could not tell you a specific moment, I really can’t think of one as I’ve probably not been in the industry long enough yet. But in general it’s probably having to tell people that I don’t actually play an instrument. Sure, I’ve played the drums quite a while, but that’s not an instrument you can use to accompany your singing. I manage to play the piano a bit, hit some chords, but that’s about it. I often wish I could play it better or play the guitar as it‘s kind of embarrassing as an artist to not be able to just pick up a guitar and play your song for someone.
8. Proudest accomplishment?
It probably sounds ridiculous, but I recently managed to finish my very first self-written lyrics and actually love them. I‘m still extremely proud of that, writing really isn‘t my thing and I struggle a lot with it. Coming up with melodies, arranging the music nicely, all that comes to me very easily, but writing some actual words down that make sense and don’t Sound super cringe? Extremely difficult for me. So I’m very proud of that xD
9. What is something about you that might surprise someone who knows you the best?
I actually would have loved to become a professional opera or musical singer. After my "Abitur" my Music and choir teacher encouraged me to study singing at the conservatory and I really would have loved to do it, but the prospects of jobs and especially the whole musical scenery were really unattractive. My heart still longs a for my Mozart days, though...
𝟭𝟬. What is your dream collaboration?
I‘ll have to say singing to David Guetta. I‘ve always enjoyed his music since I was a kid and, again, admired Sia so much for her singing over his tracks that I soon developed the wish to do it, too.
