Hey Jan! So excited to be chatting with you! What brought on your love for music?
I’ve always been doing music. I first started to play the guitar when I was 6 years old.
It was always my dream to release my own music. Last year it came true and my first single went live on all platforms. The feedback was really good and I couldn’t really believe it. It became better and better.
How would you describe your sound?
I’m trying to have my own sound. I would say that it’s quite unique. I combine mostly guitar and piano beats with catchy melodies. All of my stuff is completely created by myself.
What’s the most rewarding part of being an independent artist?
You can decide what you do and being independent in the music industry is often good. But it’s also really time consuming, because you have to do everything. You can’t only focus on the music. You also have to do the promotion, media presence and a lot more.
Please tell us more about the new music that you have been working on. When was it written and how did the experiences of 2020 shape your newest musical endeavors?
I’m currently about to finish some projects. The release is not set yet but I hope to release another single this year. This year wasn’t really a good year. Probably that’s what we all think, but I had a lot of time. From March to May I was in studio the whole day. I’ve never done so much music before. I think I could really improve my sound.
Where do you see yourself and your career in the next 2 years?
In 2 years, that’s a good question. I hope I can focus on music even more. The most important thing is that I still enjoy doing it.
What would you say has been your biggest accomplishment?
That’s hard to tell because I’m only releasing a song if I’m completely happy with it.
But the song I’m most happy about is actually my latest single “Outta My Head”.
What one word would you use to describe what your fans have allowed you to accomplish?
Do you have any last things you’d like to tell your fans about?
Thank you for making my dreams come true!!!
