A: "The In Between" EP by The Two Romans. I sang, played guitars, produced a lot of synths and background stuff, wrote all the songs.

A: Album Nr. 2 of The Two Romans.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

A: I'll do my best :)
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love everything about music, but must of all, I love having a creative output.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Laptop, little pre-amp (no matter which one), an electric guitar, good headphones and a decent microphone.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I'm a performing artist since 2015. I started producing mostly demos in 2018
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I am impulsive and quick. I go with the flow and find inspiration very quickly. I'm best at melodies and production. Lyrically, I am good, but a bit slower. Therefore, I'd rather start with the music and the jump into lyrics than the other way around.
