Let me tell you a story. Your story.
My name is Kristian and I am Greek/Norwegian. What I always wanted was to express myself, to communicate and to be creative.
My songwriting style is unique. I am fusing journalism with poetry, to create lyrics that deliver a strong message in an easy way. Manic Street Preachers were the first to teach me that. In 1998, their song "If you tolerate this" changed my perception forever.
Design thinking is my best quality. I can create lyrics for any composition. My most common habit is to change the language of a song, in order to create a brand new storyline. Due to my 10-year career in Communications & Media, I also excel in editing.
I am committed to Schlager & the Eurovision Song Contest. I also love Musicals. My biggest dream is to get Oscar-nominated for an original song in a movie.
