How long have you been performing under your present name?
This is my first release but I wrote more for this project and we can expect more to come.
What genre would you call your music?
80’s Prom Night Music :)
Who are your major influences?
David Lynch and Twin Peaks
How old were you when you started following a musician’s path?
My first revelation was « Love me do » by the Beatles when I was around 6. I remember we were driving to Spain with my uncle’s family. My cousin landed me her walkman and she was obsessed with the Beatles. That’s the only music she had. When I put the headphones and I heard « Love me do » I was struck by the power of the melody. I managed to get my first guitar around 11, at the time I had my second revelation with Nirvana. Kurt Cobain had a major influence on my music ever since.
Where would you like to be in five years?
Honestly, I would like my life to be the same. Being able to write more music. Hopefully, reach more and more people with it.
What inspires you to write?
Daily feelings are the raw material of my writing. I try to cross it with all-time existential questions to make it more universal.
What is your philosophy of life and how does it affect your music?
My philosophy of life is to enjoy it why it lasts, and try not to corrupt it with unessential things that would cut me from living the best of it. To me, it means, creates as much as I am inspired. Of course, it’s hard, because other things always get in the way. And sometimes you’re just too lazy to grab your guitar and that’s ok, as long as you don’t have regrets.
Please add the names of the places you have played and the city they are in.
In my career, I have played in many places in Europe, Russia, and the US but with this project, I haven’t got a chance to perform live yet.
Do you have any causes that tug at your heartstrings, or that you support? Abused pets, world peace organization, save the whales, etc…

Again, it’s one of many.

What is your upcoming performance schedule?
Of course, everything has been canceled until the outbreak stops.
