What song are you most excited for your listeners to hear and why?


I love all my songs equally. None of them stands out the other. They are all born from the same impetus but they all vibrate differently. This is why I prefer to let the listener make up his own mind and choose what she, he, they like.


Did you think it would already be on the NPR Music’s ‘27 Favorite Songs of the Year list?


Not at all. But I am more than honored that they chose me. NPR is like an institution for many, and me included. I hope to be able to deliver the songs to them live one day.


The song came out in one fell swoop and to this day I still haven't understood everything about it.Your music has an amazing and unique vibe.
