What would be your advice for emerging musicians who want to make it abroad?
Be prepared and arrange your business. If you're not able to take care of your own business, work with trustful and professional people who can make your life easier so you can focus on your music and live shows. 

Have you ever won any competition? And are you a competitive person?
No and no. 

Have you ever played in a band, solo or as a DJ?
No, I'm not a musician. I can little play piano and I can sing … only in my bathroom and let´s keep it there. I do like to spin records - I play all kinds of music, really depends on the event or night. From bluegrass/roots/folk till psychedelic/rock but also hip hop/afrobeat/reggae/soul and yes, electronic, avantgarde, experimental stuff.
