“In my work, I want to convey a little more truth than what is currently being sold to people. I write about what I think we need right now. Several years of living on three very different cultural continents allowed me to see that despite such a great individuality of each of us and such beautiful diversity, we are very connected to each other. We all seem to share the same source from which we as Humans come. That is why we feel and sense each other in the same way, and most of the conflicts we face are simply creations of our minds, our confusion and lack of contact with ourselves. When I write, I focus on trying to distinguish all these elements, on man – regardless of his appearance, origin, skin color or religion, on understanding the conflict between “I” and “Ego”. Musically, it is also very diverse in style. I don’t know what category my music belongs to. The songs are made according to the emotions, changes and processes I go through, and these have many sounds and you never know where they will take you.”
