The Person Behind The Music

I was born in 1996 in Eutin, Germany and grew up in Heiligenhafen.

Since I can think, I have always loved music and heard a lot. Already in the early kindergarten age I started to drum around on tables and windows until my parents gave me a small electronic drumset for Christmas at a young age. Every free minute I sat at the drumset and drummed around for hours, from morning till evening, but unfortunately the damn drumset broke down every now and then, so I had to give it up in the end.

From now on I got to know the wide range of music. Thanks to my parents I got a taste of everything and discovered the music for myself. Falco, AC/DC, Metallica, Queen, Rammstein and last but not least: The Beatles.

Until today it’s my absolute favourite band, but then I got to know something new: the orchestra. Film music or so-called soundtracks. I was fascinated by such an incredible strength that music can radiate. Especially music in trailers absolutely fascinated me.

A few years later, I received a keyboard for Christmas. The first days I was enthusiastic, but I lost interest in it very quickly and put it in a corner where it stayed for some time.

In 2007 I surprisingly got a real drum kit for my birthday. Full of joy and excitement I sat down and played. My parents were amazed at how I had played drums without ever having had a single lesson.

A short time later the keyboard also came back into play, when my brother came to me one day and we tried to play a melody together. Suddenly it started to be a lot of fun for me and this time I got stuck with the keyboard. So, I taught myself how to play the piano.

Now I was ready to get started. I started to create my first melodies and proudly presented them to my parents. It was a very memorable moment once when I played  my own melody to my brother, but he claimed that I hadn’t done it because it sounded „too good“. I knew I wanted more.

Finally, I acquired a music program and got to know the different facets of music production. Arranging, composing, mixing… all these things that go with it. I founded my first small trailer music company in 2010, with which I made my first contacts from New York and released several small albums.

After I finished school and started an education, I noticed that there were time problems and creative problems. So I let the music thing rest a bit to concentrate on it. But now I’m happy to be back again and turn back to my absolute favorite thing.

For many it’s work, but music has never been work for me.
After all, there’s nothing in the world I enjoy more.
