Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I have a simple but effective home studio where i can always go and just fall into my flow.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Me and my assistant like to start jamming the lyrics acappella to get a feeling for the lyrics to provide the needed vibe for the certain song. After that we start stacking our vocals to find the best one. When everything is aligned we start processing on our vocals to make em fit to the song. EQ, Comp reverb etc.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I always try my best to bind a story to the song. And give it a life, a soul and lunges to breaths.

A: EDM, Pop, Acoustic, Musicals/Soundtracks

A: Be relaxed and always have a full bottle of water (coffee :p) with you. It will take some time to finish up the work and to achieve the wished result.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Definitely Sia! especially for her incredible style and the amount of feelings that she puts in her songs.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: My style was always commented as very strong and raspy. Me myself would rather say that it depends on the song. If the song is very sad and full of emotions I will give it + an extra 20%( Yes it happened before that I have cried during a recording session for Miss Saigons "I swear I'd give my life for you" but that was short after giving birth to my first child. :)
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started my creative career shortly after I started walking:) When I was four years old I started to take dance classes. By 6 I have already participated in many dance competitions. When I was 12 I have started my singing career by accidentally winning a singing competition. So I'm actually an artist since 23 years :)
