What is your name?
What is your genre of music?
Give us a little bio about you.
I was born in Fier (Albania) and grown up in Florence (Italy).
I’ve always been involved in many singing and performing shows during my childhood.
My very first time in a recording studio was when I was 12.
Author-Interpreter of my own songs, I started writing and improving at the age of 13 years old. Grown up listening British and American Artists – this is the reason why my genre ranges among Hip Hop, R’N’B, Pop, Soul, Rock.
In 2005 I started attending proper Modern Dance lessons and in 2009 Hip-Hop as well.
In 2006 I started attending acting projects organised by acting teachers of the welsh School Of Drama in Cardiff. That experience gave me a great opportunity to work with professional actors and actresses of Schools of Drama from all over the world.
I’ve done many singing competitions over the years.
I’ve released my first Music Video in 2009, of my autobiographical song “Love At First Sight”.
I’ve always kept practising singing mainly as autodidact until when, at the age of 15, I’ve started attending proper vocal coaching sessions.
My great talented vocal coach Jono McNeil has been the one who’s been training me in this amazing project of my life, the release of my first Album “London Bridge”.
