Describe your sound in 3 words
Soulful, silky, uplifting.
Tell us a few things about your new song “Like A Rose”. What is the main idea behind it?
The lyrics of “Like a Rose” are inspired by the ups and downs of loves and relationships I have experienced. Long-lasting relationships are not easy to keep. The only way they will work out is to learn accepting all the thorns of your partner, next to the beautiful blossoms and learn to deal with them. It is something that we all have to do if we want to stay together with our loves.
For which lyric you are most proud of?
It’s this part here:
„Your love is like a rose
And I can see the blossom unfold
Your love is like a rose
Take off the gloves
And learn how to hold it“
Do you have an artist that you would describe as a hidden gem that we should know about?
Well, she’s a gem for sure, but she’s had quite some success yet. Check out Shannon Lauren Callihan. She does a cool mix of NeoSoul and southern music from the US. I absolutely love her songs, singing and guitar playing. Her band is also great!
What would you change in the music industry?
The payment / royalty system of the streaming giants. It is not just. There will have to come some changes.
If you were asked to rescore a film, which one would you choose?
That is difficult to answer because the films I love already have a super score or soundtrack for sure. French Connection for example. The Tarantino and Coen Bros. movies. Kubrick. So then it would have to be a film that is not really on my list….I would have more fun to score a new film!
What is the most useless talent you have?
Whistling past the graveyard.
