Where are you from and how did you get started?
I am originally from Germany, but now based in Belfast, Ireland! I started out as a "busker" which is our word for street musician actually! From there, I started singing in bars and restaurants on the weekends doing covers. I began writing my own music and released my first project in Oct. 2019
How do you manage your self-care as an artist?
It's really important to me to keep a planner! Writing everything down helps me stay on track with my day, stay focused on my goals, and schedule time for me.
What is challenging with wellness and/ or mental health as a musical artist?
There is always uncertainty about income, I think we need a little consistency to feel secure. Worrying about bills can make you feel depressed or anxious sometimes. I try to stay optimistic as much as I can, and know it will work out in the end. Musicians are really good at figuring out a way.
Do you have new releases or upcoming shows you would like to share? I recently released a new single! It's called "Monoxide." I would describe it as Garage/Alternative Rock. Rock is a pretty popular genre over here, but I take it a little further into the grunge/garage scene.
Tell us about your mission as an artist!
I aim to make people happy with my music, I think we can all change the world a little bit by making someone's day better, even if just for a short time.
