I am a songwriter, living in London, raised in Germany! I've had a amazing time in the city: studying music, gigging, writing, working musically in mental health, coaching, joining a choir and becoming a musical director! I've been blessed with wonderful opportunities, but nothing is ever so much fun as writing songs, performing and going into the studio to record. The real heartwarming and overwhelming moment is when you share it with people and your music becomes everyone's music and you bond with people in a very unique way!
So I put out an EP "The Ones Beside Me" in 2012 with the help of Kickstarter and was able to learn a lot from the process. After last year's release of my single, "Need You", I realised I wanted to write honest and authentic music - staying true to myself and the reasons I love what I do.
I Can't Sing :(
Shortly after I released my single, I was forced to spend an extended period of time off the radar and was unable to share my music with people the way that I'd originally intended. For a singer, losing your voice is like losing part of your identity and I was unable to work on my artistry. However, I had a lot of time to think...
Getting Back Up
Throughout my time on the sidelines I was not myself, and I was constantly apologising for that. I became so sick of it until the point where I "let go". And how cheesy it sounds, life became a lot easier when you don't put so much pressure on yourself!
Put It Into A Song!
Even through this time I wrote songs, and those songs really want to see the light of day!! Which means... I want to record as many tracks as I can and share them with you!!
Did Someone Say Choir?
I joined my first choir at the age of 16 and since then I haven't really stopped singing or arranging harmonies!! I joined the London International Gospel Choir a couple of years ago and quickly became one of their musical directors. Some amazing spirits in the choir have been helping me in ways I can't describe!! Singing in videos, coming to my gigs, giving me love and support through good times and bad!!
Solo Artist - Nah!
And I realised, I don't want to work on another project all by myself. I want to invite you all in my bubble and make share this project with you!! How incredible is it when you can celebrate the day of your release with people who have been actually part of the process!! When you can share your ups and downs with people, who believe in your project!! I really couldn't do it without you.
So, what am I raising for?
All of your backing to this project will go towards the below, helping me share my most honest and authentic record with you. I really couldn't do it without you!!

Risks and challenges
I am a one man show, so this is a project which I am organising all by myself. I sing and play myself and write arrangements etc. !
So when my energy levels aren't going through the roof at all times, this project might take a bit longer then expected!
What I mean is: I AM HUMAN! And I will work with humans in a creative way. To make this as magical as possible, I will take the freedom to be flexible. And I won't apologise!!
I can GUARANTEE a product which will reflect my journey and I can GUARANTEE gratitude and love for every single person who will back my project!!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
