What is music to you? What does it give you?

For me, music is the language by which I connect with the world. I can express my feelings, tell about my problems only by that way and I want you to hear me.

What is your music dream?

I want my music to be important in the industry and to change how this business goes. I want to change game rules.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

As a student of International Relations programme, I want to change how the politics is moving right now. I want politics to be more clever and productive.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Ukrainian pop-music is moving backwards the world pop. But I loved some songs in childhood. Maybe, one of game-changing songs for me was the song of the Russian pop-duo T.A.T.U. "All the Things She Said".

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

I am not a fan of one performer, because as a fan of Eurovision Song Contest, I love to explore some national music markets. But, I can say that I love the songs of Katy Perry, Owl Eyes, Cyn, Natalia Nykiel, Lanberry, Rihanna, Loreen etc.

What inspires you to make music?

If even one person loves my music, I have to do that. The feedback of your audience is the best inspiration. In addition, I know that my music really can change the rules of business and is on another higher level in my country.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

I want to show that even without a major label ahead and a huge cash you can do music which worths world stages and charts.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

When I rule all the processes on the stage, I feel confident. Unfortunately, I have some bad expeirence in that case, but it was only a sign to improve.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

Music is so diversed now, but, unfortunately, you can't do a huge promo campaign without a big ammount of money. But the people's taste now is worse than it's expected to be.

What do you think of Drooble?

It's a great ability to do what you want and to get such an important feedback for you.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

A non-existance of justice, popularity of useless topics in songs and bad taste.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

A little bit, because my country has a lot of really talented artists, but they can't be popular among simple lyrics and beats plagiarised from the West. I would recommend Time and Glass, Lucy, The Hardkiss, CONSTANTINE etc.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

A huge cash, links with radio and creativity.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

Maybe, Lucy, CONSTANTINE, Natalia Nykiel, Lanberry. They are awesome!
