What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music gives me growth, I can express my feelings in music and lyrics, it relaxes me and gives me joy.

What is your music dream?

I have two projects: MP3-YOGA and CHILLINDE. I hope both projects can give peace, joy and relaxation to the people who need it.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Heal the nature and give more room to the animals and plants. Restore the balance on our earth. I can not do that alone, so I only can send out my love to the earth, think, feel and meditate with the intention for balance, for humans, animals, plants and all of the life.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Most of the times I listened to Michael Jackson, I love the songs Man in the mirror and Libarian girl, because of the beautiful melodies and these songs are real slow, that relaxed me. Also the voice of Michael is so pure and on key, it made me forget time.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Michael Jackson, Enigma, Enya, Queen. Well, all good artists of all times, I have a lot of favorite artists ?

What inspires you to make music?

Life itself inspires me, a melody or lyrics just pops up in my mind, then I have to write it down or sing the tune to work it out later.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Stay relaxed, don't worry too much and enjoy your life, just as it is.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

At this moment, I choose not to perform in front of big audiences any more. Unfortunately it gives me a lot of stress. So I choose to write songs at home, on my own or with other song writers.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

I hope that musicians can make a living with their music and be independent. That is very hard nowadays.

What do you think of Drooble?

I don't know, I just begun, so I will change this text if I get to know Drooble...

What frustrates you most as a musician?

That it is very hard to make a living with making music (songwriting and writing lyrics). I am not performing, so this makes it extra hard.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

I don't know any local scenes, I will search for that.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

If you want to perform, you should have more skills on stage. If you only write music, you will have to let your creativity flow. Be yourself and find ways to export / spread your music.
