As a child, I discovered and played with the building blocks of music. Always fascinated by musical symmetry and structure, I improvised and composed patterns of sound because they felt good. This search for solace and catharsis in stories of melody, harmony and rhythm shaped my unique style that combines classical, jazz and pop influences. As an artist, I still make music this way. My style is emotionally-connected, direct, accessible and unpretentious both as a composer-producer in my own piano-, keyboards- and vocal-led projects and as a classical pianist. As a performer, I enjoy using my skills for virtuosity but even more for generating intimacy and connection. Especially when improvising, I love the emotional space that opens up between the audience and me: it shapes the music into an authentic, natural and spontaneous communication that has the potential to heal.
