Why did you begin studying music?

My parents are both artist, so I’ve always been around music. Three years ago I found out singing was how I would make people see what I feel and feel what I love the most that is Jazz: Filled with passion and dreams, done for those ones who are happily mad and know, one way or another, that the blues don’t mean a thing if you got swing.

What are you doing with music now?

I’m studying music a lot and recording a song or two whenever the opportunity appears.[/twocol_one] [twocol_one_last]

Teen Jazz Artist Badge

[What’s this?]


Who are some of your influences?

At the beginning, they were Diana Krall and maybe Sade. But then I realised that my style was from the 30’s and 40’s. So my strong influences nowadays are Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Peggy Lee.

Who have you studied with?

As I have not started studying too long ago, there’s no one truly ”famous” to talk about. Anyway, I believe that Jazz is, not at all, something you learn, just something you feel and that you are born with.

What would you like to do with music in the future?

Go on studying, putting in hours of practising and start, as soon as I can, with live performances.
