JadeWeb : What is your first musical memory ?
Listening to my dad play the beatles on his record player
artist or song has "affected" your childhood ?
sure. i liked REM and The Cure alot, Quicksand really inspired me
with the hardcore scene,animal rights, vegetarianism and being pc,
same with Sick of It All and all the groups in the hardcore scene.
you think of working in music ? What did you really want to become
sang since I was like 6 years old I think. So Iíve always been working
in/around music forever pretty much. Never thought I would be working
within it though later, wanted to work in the outdoors/snowboarding
at a resort, or something like this.
there any disturbing or nice sounds that have "affected" your childhood ?
that I can recall, although I was once locked in an elevator.
your parents give you a musical education ?
really, it was all pretty much my doing, although I think my mom wanted
to give me piano lessons, but I wouldnít have it.

I remember being a lead in the musical Oklahoma, a sort of western
musical set place in the U.S. around 1890 maybe. I was a traveling

come on stage at one point cause she forgot, so I was on stage by
myself for like a minute, which in a musical/play is a VERY long time.
so I had to just create this dialog by myself the whole time, it was
very difficult. I will also never forget singing in the cathedral
in Koln, Germany when I was 18 with my school choir when we toured
Europe... that was incredible.
