When did you discover your love for music your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
From my childhood I liked American 80’s pop music and Classical Music genres, without knowing that there’s a genre right in between – American Songbook (Jazz and Swing).
Although I heard Nat King Cole as a child, it was only a few years ago, discovered American Songbook through Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, and Andy Williams. Simply put, I love singing those oldies and I believe that there are still many songs to be made by blending oldies style with modern styles and sounds.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
My taste and style are influenced by great singers like Luciano Pavarotti, Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra. I admire the beauty, respect, and care with which they sang their songs. Each note, each word, each vowel, and syllable were given its due and as a result of they talked to people’s hearts directly through singing.
On your current album, How did you come up with the concept?
I always believe that singing is all about the message of love and joy and it must be matched by music and lyrics. A song must make a person feel better, it must move the listener’s imagination, it has to be pleasant to listen to at any time. I think, in singing the concept will always be same regardless of time – love and joy.
What are your plans for the near future?
I plan to create more albums in genres that would be suitable for all ages. “American Songbook” like and also close to modern pop. I also believe that the songs I sing are a good fit for movies – romantic comedies, dramas, Holiday movies. People enjoy movies a lot through music too.
Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout outs?
I want to thank my voice teacher Dietrich Erbelding, my mother, my relatives, and friends for their ongoing support of my journey. I am also very lucky and honored to come across and work with amazing music producers with whom I have complete mutual understanding and similar music tastes.
