What I like is not a particular genre, it's storytelling. There's a lot of great storytelling in jazz, and in folk and in country music.
I've followed my voice rather than forcing it to emerge.
If I can make something real and it's appreciated and accessible to other people, I'm happy.
Finally I started really opening up as a songwriter and an interpreter and taking songs from all kind of genres and stripping them down to just lyrics and the story inside the lyrics, and trying to make them really mine.
People are a lot more open than even they think they are. And I feel like I carry a heavy story about where I come from and those roots, but also what I like as a thinker.
I just want something that is real and that moves people. And just want to make something real.
Just because I'm a recording artist doesn't mean I'm not an artist. Because I had to grow.
I'm not angry. I can't sing that loud for that long anyway, I'll start coughing - I don't have the instrument for it. I don't feel that emotional. I'm at peace.
