Describe your sound in 3 words

Tell us a few things about your new work “Our Universe, Our Galaxy”.
Our Universe, Our Galaxy is my new single from my upcoming project ‘Unspoken Dreams,’ which speaks of dreams, desires, words, wishes that have been hidden so far, but see the light because love is involved. Love is the natural force will create a safe place for our emotions to run free when given freedom of engagement. Our Universe, Our Galaxy takes us into this world of hidden emotions. It’s a world made for people who are madly in love and feel different from society. They feel different because they are riding a different wave of emotions. Therefore, the single takes listeners into a hidden world of desires that are on the brink of becoming fully realized.
For which lyric you are most proud of?
Rest your soul as you lay
On my chest all night
Do that thing again
Go back to my dream
It’s an invitation to detach from reality for a small instance and dive into the world of dreams, where our emotions are safe to find a tangible expression.
Artists and people who have influenced and inspired you?
There are so many musicians and artists that have influenced my upbringing and my music since my childhood. From classical to pop, from jazz to soul music, here are a few names that have and still inspire me: Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Jazmine Sullivan, Prince and Justin Timberlake.
What would be your dream performance venue?
Madison Square Garden in New York.
In which state of mind do you imagine people might listen to your music?
When people are deeply in love with someone, an entity, or even something like an idea, a vision, or just a concept. That someone can also be yourself. I feel that we as musicians and artists need to create a safe place for people to express themselves in all kinds of forms, colors, shape, sounds and emotions. I personally feel obliged to do so. My music tries to create a safe place where you can express yourself however you want. I also love to include strong visuals that break common sense, or provoke and leave space for imagination and creativity.
When was the last time you danced?
Just before. I dance every day. Dance is part of who I am. It goes along with my music, my creativity. The body is one, and can’t be detached from movement. Dance is part of who we are. When we are children, we dance because we don’t care who is watching. It should stay that way as we grow older.
