When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
It all started when I was about 13 years old. I downloaded royalty free beats and wrote lyrics just for fun. Since that time I’ve been doing music in some way. My debut single under “Hovzter” was released in 2015 and was named “What Time Is It”.
On your current, how did you come up with the concept?
On my song “Connection” I wanted to make something different compared to what I usually do. It’s also the first time I was involved in the lyrical writing on a more serious level. By every new project, I want to feel some kind of development for me as an artist.
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
Absolutely not, Youtube is still a good friend of mine when it comes to sound design, mixing and mastering.
What are your plans for the near future?
I will be graduating from upper secondary school at the beginning of this summer which will allow me to pursue music on a more serious level.

What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Connect with people in the industry, especially more times than when you want something in exchange. But also as everyone else says, work hard and try to be unique by finding your own sound.
