Q: If you could classify your music in a genre or a number of genres what would it be?

The type of genres that I feel my music fits into and I am working on right now is: dance, pop, electro & house


Q: If you could use a tagline of less than 20 words to describe your music and who you are what would it be?

The aim of my music is to give off a feeling enabling energy, happiness, positivity and love to all listeners.  


Q: What is your musical background?

I have been singing since my childhood, going to music camps. I used to dream when I would grow up that I would study at a music school so I moved in London and went to the London School of Contemporary Music (LCCM).


Q: Who inspires you musically?

Since my childhood I have absolutely loved Michael Jackson, his music gives me the feeling that I should never give up. His music says a lot to me and speaks out to me. I am also very much inspired by Aretha Franklin, Alicia Keys and I am crazy about Barry White because his voice is so unique and I can really relax listening to him.


Q: Which modern day artists do you look up to?

Adele, Michael Buble and Robin Thicke. I think they are amazing artists.


Q: Is there anyone you would like to collaborate or gig with?

I would definitely want to work with David Guetta. His songs always make me happy.


Q: What songs are on your iPod at the moment?

I listen to a lot of Adele. Robin Thicke and Will Young, and then it really depends on the mood I am in for example if I am going out I would listen to club music and I would never listen to ballads, however if I am sad I would listen only to up-tempo songs to cheer me up like dance music.

Q: What is your creative process for creating a track?

I actually wrote one song in a very weird way it was so magical I just started to attend guitar lessons and I hardly knew how to play it, I just picked it up and started to play chords I knew and start singing. I just sang the whole song. I was crying. I literally wrote the song in 5 minutes, including the whole lyrics and melody. I didn’t have time to write it out so I recorded myself on the computer video to not loose it, so when I listened back I realized that I said whole story of what I was going through and I have heard myself and the things I was too scared to admit or even say it out loud to myself.

I heard it within my song. I haven’t recorded the song yet but I sang it on one of my gigs so if readers would like to hear it they can see it on my YouTube page


Q: What’s more important, melody or lyrics?

In my opinion they are both very important because you need a good melody to get people listen to the lyrics:) but I pay a lot of attention to lyrics as well. When I create lyrics it always means something to me and I am trying to say something so it is big part of my music.


Q: Where are you based?

Central London.


Q: What’s it like being where you’re from?

It feels like I have made a lot of sacrifices, as I have to be far from my family and people I love, in order to do what I love. I know it will be worth it to follow my dream. It is though nice being in place where the ground is not frozen so I can put my heels more often and not being scared to fall over :)!


Q: What are you currently working on?

I am working on my new songs, which I am very excited about, and than I will be ready to start promoting my music; so I can get myself out there more.


Q: What’s been the highlight of your career to date?

My biggest highlight so far in my career would be making my first music video and having positive feedback from people I don’t know. This really keeps me going and makes me want to create more and more songs for people.

Q: What are you hoping to achieve over the next 12 months?

I would like to complete numerous recordings and start to promote myself, gig and create as much of a fan base as possible, because you are nobody without your fans.


Q: What do you do to relax?

I love watching movies and being on the Internet searching for things which could inspire me. I love to go in nice restaurants, I also love cooking, having a glass of wine and listening to Nina Simone in order for me to sit back, relax and contemplate about things.


Q: Is there anything else you’d like to let our readers know about?

I would love them to know that every time I start writing a song, I write it for them. Just keep up with me and see you soon.
