« A few years ago, I became very ill with some scary and mysterious symptoms. After an emergency flight home from touring in Vietnam, some hospitals, blood tests, and crazy advice from well-meaning friends, The docs told me, “there’s nothing we can do.” I was informed that I may never sing the same again. Somehow through all of the confusion, a small part of my soul remained brave. It told me they were wrong – that I was born to sing. Since then, there have been many ups and downs, but I’M NOW SINGING AGAIN! And I’ve learned so much about healing and hope and bravery – all the things I’ve wanted to make music about for so long. »

 « One day in October 2009, I met an amazing English singer songwriter Kristyna Myles who gave me the confidence to pursue a career in Music. She’s been a revelation for me. Since then I finished my exams in Uni, studied in a music school for 3 years and moved to Manchester UK to work in music. I’ve been living in Manchester for a year and a half now. I work on my own songs and I’m also a singer at privates parties, restaurants, I don’t have any regrets. »

« One of my most memorable moments as a performer was during a solo set at The Way Station in Brooklyn. I couldn’t have hoped for a warmer audience; everyone was welcoming, attentive, and responsive to my songs. At the end of the show, I decided to play a song called « Grande », which I had written as an homage to my deceased grandfather. After talking to them more about the tune, and about how my grandpa was such an inspiring figure of my childhood, I mentioned that they could sing along during the refrain, but only if they wanted to, no pressure. After singing the first verse, everyone in the room started singing along. It’s not the first time that it happened, but this time, it was completely different. Something clicked, at that specific moment in time, and all of our hearts were unified, we were all singing without any inhibition. Our chant grew, and grew, and grew, to the point where people were all shouting, clinking glasses, singing harmonies, you name it…

That night, they gave me something that touched my inner self in a way that is beyond what I can comprehend as a rational human being. It was by far one of the most beautiful moment I’ve ever experienced as a professional performer. »
