As a Gift
I am the second oldest daughter of an artistically talented family. Besides father and mother to the family belong 5 daughters. God gave me a natural talent as composer and songwriter. Besides childhood piano lessons I hasn’t had actual musical training still music has belonged as an important part to my childhood and youth. My grandfather was the violinist in the City Orchestra. My father has very varied talents in music and arts. When I was 5 years old, I got one and half octave Casio as a present, that’s where it all began. My most important reason for composing and making music is my personal relationship with Jesus.
Become a singer and songwriter
I compose very special way. When e.g. I’m walking or driving a car, the music begins to play out in my head, and I need to hurry to the nearest instrument and write the melody down. Sometimes the same tune can come again, but usually only ones; therefore it must soon be written down. Although I can read notes, I am using my own melody and chord marks, which an outsider has difficult to interpret. Sometimes I compose quite traditionally at the piano.
My family had a house in Spain. When I was 15 years old I spent a year there all by myself. That is certainly the reason, why in many of my songs Latin influences are heard.
Hitsound wanted to release my first solo album already for some years ago, but I wanted to make music together with others, at first two CDs with my sisters, then a CD with the band Seven.
The style of the my music nowadays is stronger and rhythmic compared to the earlier CDs. The musical style is now something quite different; R&B, reggae and melodic pop. Latin influences are more clearly heard.
”When you connect the music with the emotional side and live what you are singing, the music becomes a living wholeness, which is transferred directly from the singer to the listener, from heart to heart.”
