Where did you grow up?
I grew up in a little town in Switzerland called Winznau.
What inspired you to get into music?
I actually don't know, I just always made music. I wrote music and lyrics since I can think and at some point I started to put the two together. Never stopped since.
At what age did you write and record your first song?
I think that was when I was like 11 years old. But better no one hears that one, lol. I do remember though how it went.
What is the music scene like in Switzerland, does the music scene support each other?
The scene is pretty small here, but the few bands that I know from town all support each other. Not later than last week we got to record with a pianist on our newest track as well as a saxophone player who played with names like Michael Bubblé and Donna Summer. We have recieved great support here, but most of our fans are actually in the US.
What is your songwriting process?
Normally Luca comes up with an idea for a song and I write the melody and the lyrics to it. Then we send it to our drummer in Italy, and if so needed we involve other artists to play on the track.
Do you write for other artists?
I am co-owner of a recording studio and sometimes there it happens, that I write or co-write for other artists.
You mentioned you have a bigger American fan base. Are they hardcore?
Yes, most of our fans are from the US. They also always ask for more/ new songs.
You have done a lot of touring. What are some of your favorite spots to perform?
I loved a lot to tour in the US. We once played in a club that had the stage on the ocean. It was so cool. It was like playing on water. In the same tour we got to play at Kenny's Castaway where people like Bruce Sprinsteen already played at. It was a great feeling to have the honour to play in a place like this!
Tell us about your latest project?
I wanted to make an EP, but we decided to do things a bit different. We decided to make a video to each song, and at the end of the 5 tracks, release the EP.
What can we expect from you in the future?
So there will be those 5 Songs coming out. First was "Broken Record" in May, In June came out "Love in My Head" and the next one will be a featuring with Samuray Kuba, and the song will be called "A Song For You". The rest is still to reveal. For sure there will be a tour following the release of the EP.
Btw. if I say WE I mean me and my Team. :-)
