Do it with passion, and trust and listen to yourself. Be sensitive to the trends but do not be overwhelmed by them – continuing making your own sound and style, and remember that practicing over and over again can only make you better.
As well as musical influences, everyday life and occurrences influence me. What I bring to the stage is not only my performance and understanding of the music, but my personality, experience and perceptions. The work I do is affected by everything I encounter and perceive. So I go to lots of concerts and meet lots of different people, and generally feel open to new possibilities.
