Where are you currently based?  

It’s hard to name one place, now I’m focusing on writing new music and recording it, that’s why  we travel a lot with my team to work with different songwriters, producers and meet people from  industry all around the world. For example we had writing camps in LA, Dubai, London, south of  France and by the way, I’d love to be in LA now. For sure we will go there soon. 

How did you first start playing music?  

Music has always been a major part of my life. Mostly because I come from a musical family, my  father is a drummer and my mother is a singer, so I spent my childhood on the backstage and  from a young age I was singing and playing piano and flute. Also back then, every week we were  making small concerts at our place for all the neighbors. It was a great time! 

What’s been happening recently?  

Recently I’ve been recording a lot and preparing new materials, we finally finished the EP, so I will  release it very soon, right after ‘Dynamite’. For me it was really important to choose right songs  and get all details close to perfect. 

Your new single ‘Dynamite’ is out on August 5, what influenced the sound and songwriting?  The lyrics are based on my own experience. 

It’s about feelings that burst out and cannot be controlled. I’m sure that everyone can relate to it. So I just wanted to share my feelings with people. 

How did you go about writing Dynamite?  

Honestly, it was a team work, definitely magic happened! 

We were in studio for a couple of days songwriting. Dynamite was written 2 years ago, that time  we tried to find the right sound, but I didn’t feel that version should be released as it was. 

And recently we got back to the song again and finally made it the way you hear it now. We caught the right moment, my team was inspired by the song again, the melody got stuck in  my head for days so I realized, it’s a time to drop it.. 

Where and when did you record/produce/master and who did you work with?  I’ve been working with the same crew for the last 4 years, we kinda feel each other so it’s  definitely a match. I see how they also get inspiration from what we do together, and they believe  in me, it’s very important feeling.  

How did you approach the production process?  

We changed the song few times and then realized that it would be cool to make a rock ballade  format. We got inspired by greatest rock bands and decided to use Lenny Kravitz guitar style 

As a rising artist you’ve already collaborated with DJ Snake and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike,  how was each experience and who would you like to collaborate with in the future?  I still can’t believe that we did it together, it is a big-big honor for me!  

They are huge professionals with strong teams in all aspects from music to management You need to learn from the best, right? 

Soon I will drop a new collaboration with another big name, for now I keep it a secret! The song is massive, I’m sure people will love it. 

Who are you listening to at the moment?  

I listen to different music, lately I have a lot of pop rock songs in my playlist, like Maneskin, Harry  styles. 

Can’t wait to hear some new names in the same style! I love it! 

What do you like to do away from music?  

For efficiency, in every sphere it’s important for me to switch activities.  

Currently I focus on improving my music performance. 

Everyday I have dancing classes, vocals, studio, rehearsals etc.

What’s planned for the remainder of 2022 going into 2023?  

I will release my first EP and few music videos soon. 

Planning another album, preparing new shows – can’t wait to perform on stage again!
