Thank you for showing interest !!
I am a 24 year old Swedish girl who recently moved to London to start a music career.
Since I was 6 I have always performed in some ways, at children's parties, at home, in school, etc. Like, when the popular girls were Spice Girls at the community youth center, I - not so popular - gathered my not so popular friends and we did the Smurfs ...!
When I was 15 I started high school where music was my main subject, so for three years I went to Stockholm Arts High School where I learned all about singing, hamonies, ensemble, singing while dancing, ear training, scenic presence etc. Here I blossomed both as a person and as an artist and took my voice to a whole other and higher level. I was the one who always stayed late in the studio and learned all about it, vocals, harmonies, mixing and the fact that you do need to control your self sometimes when the computer fails or the mic doesn't work =P
During this time - my high school years - I worked like crazy with different producers who needed a voice for their demos, ranging from garages in Uppsala to basements in Varberg. All the time learning and all the time left with a greater hunger to make this my profession.
On my graduation day I had gotten into an audition for a new girlband so I drank nothing, and didn't holler like you usually do. I jumped off the lorry platform in the centre of Stockholm and walked through town, soiled with champagne, came to the hotel and put my head under a faucet in the bathroom and changed my dress, met my boyfriend with his guitar and did a very good audition and at the student party I was told that they wanted to see me the next day. Everything was wonderful. I was the happiest 18 year old in the world.
After a few days, KRU went back to Malasya, while we girls were left with a man from Manchester who was to become our manager. Things turned out rather terrible and I quit. Not long after I (without trying to think) applied for another girl band that was to be formed by A1 member Ben Adams. I received a personal email from him a few days later where he asked me to come do a song with him. That one became 'Piece of me' and became sort of a therapy for me.
And that became a start of my demo making and finding a sound. I've worked with lots and lots of producers and get influenced by everything. My foundationis pop but with a bit of R&B, rock and some country in it I wanna create something new & fresh. I have a huge passion which you can hear in my voice. I mean what I sing and I need amazing melodies that can help me bring out my words.
Right now I create. I work with several songwriters that can help me make some more songs. I want a full repertoar when I go to London. I want to be prepared.
You can find some of my songs on my profile and by following this link.
