I've been working for nearly 40 years in different branches and genres in music. Very early I felt at ease with very different music genres, and always looked with fascination and curiosity for musical diversity. Very naturally, I assimilated the different genres I played. I explain multi-instrumentality as an opportunity to have a wider vision.

As a musician, I strive to just be different (seeing how that's what people are always looking for) I just make music for people to vibe to, and just to listen to on their playlists. I take writing very deeply, since it's a coping mechanism a lot, so, might as well let some others put it to good use
