Okay, let’s get into the Ten questions for KRISS!
𝟭. 𝗪𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘄𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗵𝗼𝗯𝗯𝘆?
I was born in Poland (Gdynia) and since 2009 I live in Sweden. My main hobby is off course producing music.
𝟮. 𝗛𝗼𝘄 𝗱𝗶𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗴𝗲𝘁 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗼 𝗠𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗰/𝗠𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗰 𝗣𝗿𝗼𝗱𝘂𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻?
I always felt music in my heart. I picked up drums as my first instrument when I was maybe 9 years old (that was in a form of plastic boxes, some equipment from my mothers kitchen etc) and then I got my hands on a guitar.
It has been like that as long as I can remember now.
I have been playing with lots of bands in my home town as well as after moving to Sweden.
I always wanted to produce something by myself as well, so this new chapter has started back in July 2020 when the band members couldn't find time for regular rehearsals anymore.
𝟯. 𝗪𝗵𝗼 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗯𝗶𝗴𝗴𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝗶𝗻𝗳𝗹𝘂𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀?
If you ask me today I would say at this moment it's Plini, Animals as Leaders and Bruno Mars or even James Brown. Sounds a bit strange combination, right ? ;)
Yes, I love music in general. I do listen to lots of different styles and genres.
Nevertheless you can hear in my music other influences such as Hard metal or Jazz. whatever strikes my heart
𝟰. 𝗪𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝗱𝗶𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗯𝗲𝗴𝗶𝗻 𝗺𝗮𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗺𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗰?
I remember my first riff when I was at primary school (Maybe 10 years old in 1990).
From that moment I jut knew I need to learn some cover songs just for fun and practicing but primarily I want to record my own songs.
𝟱. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗴𝗼𝗮𝗹𝘀 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗺𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗰 𝗶𝗻𝗱𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗿𝘆?
First of all I want to have fun and express myself.
I want to share my music with positive energy for everyone. I would be more than happy if anyone get smile on their face while listening to my productions.
𝟲. 𝗜𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗰𝗵𝗼𝗼𝘀𝗲 𝗮 𝗹𝗼𝗰𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗼 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗺 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗶𝘁 𝗯𝗲?
It would be Gdynia. My home town. In the middle of summer and on the beach (like I did back in the days with one of the bands I've been playing with).
𝟳. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲 𝗳𝗮𝘃𝗼𝘂𝗿𝗶𝘁𝗲 𝘀𝗼𝗻𝗴?
"Untouchable" by Anathema. This song sits deep in my heart. Brings back many good memories and emotions.
𝟴. 𝗠𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝗲𝗺𝗯𝗮𝗿𝗿𝗮𝘀𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗺𝗼𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁?
There were many moments, as an artist, student, father or husband but the most embarrassing? ...ahhh... believe me, I simply don't remember this one ;)
𝟵. 𝗣𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗱𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝗔𝗰𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗶𝘀𝗵𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁?
My proudest accomplishment is that despite many "ups and downs", I am still doing my thing. I can't even imagine life without music.
𝟭𝟬. 𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗶𝘀𝘁 𝘄𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘄𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝗰𝗼𝗹𝗹𝗮𝗯 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗶𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗰𝗵𝗼𝗼𝘀𝗲?
I would love to record one song with Devin Townsend. He is a fantastic artist and a funny guy. I am sure that if I would have a chance to cooperate with him, It would go very well :)
