What inspired you to first start making music? And how did you come to be in your current incarnation? Or if you prefer, a brief bio about you.
I started playing music when I was very young. We had a piano and I loved to play. I was interested in all sounds and all instruments. I get inspiration from life in general and everything that happens to me or others. Writing songs helps me understand things better.
Provide us with some info about your latest release…
“Up and Away” is an album I wrote just before covid hit, co-written and produced by artist and producer Redinho, and it’s my fourth studio album that will be out on Sub Pop Records on June 17 2022!
Which ones would you consider your main influences both music-wise & non-music-wise?
My influences, music-wise, were bands/artists like The Doors, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Freddie Mercury, Kate Bush, Fleetwood Mac. Non music-wise, I’d say that a big influence to me was my dad, who was a very direct and full of wisdom man. I would find a lot of similarities between him/his personality with artists l loved. He was very rebellious for his time.
In what way does your sound differ from the rest genre-related artists/bands and why should we listen to your music? In other words, how would you describe your sound?

Do you prefer studio or performing live and why?
I prefer the studio because I’m not exposed as much as when I’m live. However, when exposed, I find I love it very much.
Is there any funny-unique story you would like to share with us, always in relation to your music ‘career’?
I almost fainted before my first show ever.
Which track of your own would you point out as the most unique and why?
Too hard to name one track as most unique!
Would you like to share with our readers your future plans?
I’m shooting a new video in the next coming weeks and I am planning to tour in the next coming months.
Free question!!! (Ask yourself a question) you wish to answer and haven’t been given the opportunity…

I once dreamt of Ricky Martin and that we were kissing very passionately.
