I knew I wanted to be a musician when...
...since I can remember I've been singing. I use to sing the blues in the bathtub when I was 2 years old.
Your sound and approach to music:
I approach each song differently. Sometimes it's about the feeling or the texture, sometimes it's simply about the message and story, sometimes it's completely about shaping sound and letting my voice fly alongside the other instruments. It's important to me to let each song have its moment and unique sensation.
