What is your songwriting process?
“I don’t have a precise creative process to create music. Most of the time, it comes to my mind out of nowhere. Days, and nights. I have a melody in my head or the instrumental parts, sometimes both. So I take my piano or my guitar and I start playing it. Inspiration is everywhere for me. In my feelings, in my observation of the world or society, in the past, in my memories. Or just when I see something that inspires me at one moment.”
What made you want to start in music?
“I’ve been growing with sisters and my father playing some instruments, so I always wanted to play. And as long as I can remember I’ve always been playing music!”

"Last of course!!"
Tell us your funniest joke!
