Interview in English on JAZZESPRESSO Network:
- what made you desire to be a jazz singer?
I became a singer because I was moved by the positive reaction I got from people when I sang. I also find music very mystical, and by being part of it I hope to truly understand why we love it so much and need it in our everyday lives.
- what is jazz today in your opinion?
Jazz today is a middle grown for true expression and freedom. Jazz is so powerful that you can combine it with different genres to create something fresh and exciting to the ear. Jazz is really on the come back and a radially growing genres with the younger generation which is what it needs.
- How did you choose, arrange and write songs; and how do you choose the musicians you play with ?
I try to write everyday! I get inspiration from the world around me, by things I hear on the radio, read in magazines, see on the internet, hear in passing conversations and I write those lines down. When is comes the time to arrange and write a song, I bring all those ideas together with melodies and chords. My phone is full of voice notes, enough for another 5 albums! Choosing the musicians is easy because I always work with the same guys I tour with, whom are now part of my family.
