Q: Can you tell the audience how old you are?
A: I’m at the ripe age of 23
Q: Please tell us where you were born and where you are currently based?
A: I was born in Finland, spending the majority of my life in this cartoonishly small town of Somero. As quite a contrast, I moved to London earlier this year which was easily the greatest choice I’ve made so far in my life.
Q: At What age did you start making music?
A: I started played piano when I was five and singing soon followed. I think I wrote my first song at the age of 14 or 15.
Q: What genre of music would you consider yourself?
A: I always wonder about the label because most of my solo music ends up being warped somewhere between hip hop and alt rock, yet I have a wide-ranging palette of influences to draw from. I find thinking in genres sort of creatively limiting, as the most exciting things happen once the established lines are blurred.
Q: Who is your favorite artist and why?
A: Robin Thicke, clearly. On a more serious note, Chris Cornell remains the #1.
Q: What are your hobbies?
A: I love politics and psychopathology (the two go niftily hand in hand), plus weightlifting. One of my peculiar passions is documenting my friends – especially in parties – with my iPhone, getting the greatest shots possible. I never cared for the technicalities of photography but I have a good eye for framing so phone camera photography feels like so much fun.
Q: Do you play any musical instrument?
A: Along with singing, I play guitar, piano and bass, plus do production. Anything but drums, drums are hard.
Q: Where do you get your musical inspiration?
A: I never really run out of inspiration, it’s more about finding the right energy that’ll work as a conduit. I gain loads of artistic energy from hearing exciting songs and watching interesting people talk or perform.
Q: Who is your hero?
A: Right now it would be Eric Andre for being so legendarily audacious and mad.
Q: If you were given a chance, which Artist would you love to perform with?
A: Live, probably Travis Scott because of his intense live energy. Studio? That’s tricky. Probably Kanye.
Q: Finally tell our audience where they can find you on social media and also mention wherever you will be performing live.
I’ll be doing occasional live spots here and there but the dates are still a bit unclear. However, I will keep my listeners updated via my social media (especially Facebook)!
