Q. Several artists say they write their own lyrics while instead we notice that they are helped by ghostwriters. As an artist which place do you give in writing texts and being the interpret?
A. All lyrics of my songs are written by me. I always have an idea how the basic of my song must sound like, but I will not hesitate to ask another person for input. On occasion I get a complete song to work on and create a lyric for.
Q. How many music videos would you like to do for your project? Do you think that artists must do a lot of music videos per project to stay relevant in the music industry? A. I think, that if it’s possible, every song you release as single needs some kind of video.

10. What are your wishes for 2021?
First of all, good health for everybody and the departure or control of the pandemic, but second, for me personally an equally important one, performing music before an audience, so the people, including myself have something to relax to, just sit back and enjoy the show.
