How would you describe your last year in a nutshell?
Successful and exciting.
What is the role of art in your life right now?
What projects are you working on right now?
Completing my debut album and Self-Expression Sessions for Mosney DP Centre.
How did Covid-19 affect your work and your lifestyle?
I play a lot of shows and give a lot of workshops, which all got cancelled. Financially, I am fine. Music-wise – I have to come to terms with the role of technology in my future as an Artist, which is something I was quite reluctant to do. I’m an old soul in my approach to being present to things, so now I’m learning new ways to try and be that way online for the sake of reaching my highly appreciated audience. Personally, I am growing and developing.
Do you think the current pandemic has changed you? If so, in what way?
Yes. It has changed me and it has changed everyone. Nothing will ever be the same again – in an amazing way. We are reaching a higher level of consciousness now. On top of finally getting the time and space to do that, I am meeting my shadow properly and become more aware of personal traits within myself that serve and do not serve my career – such as fear. The role of fear in our society is ridiculous and I am refusing to be afraid of my own power any longer. I am also recognising a global healing happen as a result of individuals doing so.
what is the biggest challenge for the creative sector right now?
What do you look forward to the most right now?
More gratitude and peace in our world.
