How did you come by your stage name?
I used my own name since it was the easiest way for me to start, and since this is the for me best way to work I later decided to just use my official name
When did you discover your love for your craft and what made you realize you wanted to pursue a career in it?
When I was about 5 years old I started giving around with my father’s guitar, at the age of 13 I learned to produce music with an app, I loved the process of creating my own music and tried to learn as much as possible about it, at the age of 16 I decided I wanted to do this the rest of my life and I started to actually publish my music on streaming surfaces like Spotify, now I’m 19 years old and that dream still lives in me till this day. The only difference between now and back then is that I know much more about music since I never stopped learning.
To what or whom do you accredit your sense of style?
I grew up with a band called Ayreon and I always loved it to this day, although Ayreon is a rock band I make dance filled with guitar solos. I make dance because I always loved the music of Avicii so I decided to make music based on both bands. However, Ayreon is still my hero and my all-time inspiration
On your current project, how did you come up with the concept?
Well, I make my current projects based on what I listen to a lot on this case it was a synth wave disco style but it had to be 2023 styled so it would actually be listened to.

What are some of your greatest challenges, and what is your greatest attribute when it comes to your work ethic?
The greatest challenge in creating my work is to make every note special on its own, I mean that the song can never be boring cause it has to amaze you every time you listen to it luckily my greatest attribute is that I never quit on my projects and that by doing this the project will eventually be as you want it to be.
Are you the best at what you do in your opinion?
no. I believe that I’m never the best in what I do since there is always room to evolve and learn, as long as I can learn from my projects and my life I won’t be the best.
What are your plans for the near future?
Well at the moment I’m trying to prompt my latest song: getaway:
and I’m working without a label, I want to change this in the near future and I can say that I am stoked to announce that by the end of this year, I will release my first album
Is there anyone you’d like to thank, any shout-outs?
I like to thank my parent for believing in me and my work they never gave up on me and they never will
How can fans find you?
I’m mostly active on Spotify and TikTok
Although you can also find me and listen to me on

What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Don’t give up, every morning I tell myself that the meaning of life is to give life meaning, I do this to know that I got nothing to lose and the only way is up.
