 We hold our destiny in our hands. It’s up to us to choose our path and live our dreams.
Inspiration is infinity.
My music is a  mix between styles. I’m not afraid to mix world, rock or pop music. In fact, my parents are from Jordan and Ex Yougoslavia, but I was born in Belgium and besides my parents influences, I was listening to Michael Jackson, Deep Purple, Dire Straits etc… So this mix of music is just natural for me.
I’m always trying to surprise myself. I don’t like to have the feeling that I’m repeating what I’ve just done. But to me, the most important thing is to be honest with myself so I will always follow a direction that my heart and my soul is telling me. I only have to listen to myself.
I create my music at my place, my home . I’ve got my home studio. I live in a small village, not far from Brussels, and it’s quite and inspiring. I can create everywhere and every compostions might have born differently.

 My only enemy is time… not having enough time. I have two daughters (my best creation ; )) ) and my priority is to be a good father and take care of my family.
Years ago I would take time to compose and to think about what I wanted, but now when I have 2 hours in front of me, I jump into inspiration no matter what, no choice…
Anyway, everyday somewhere in my head there is place for new ideas and dreams…

The piece of music advice that has forever changed my thinking is, Private Investigation – Dire Straits. It was like lightning, I was a sixteen year old boy, not especially thinking about the future, not especially thinking about music and from the moment I listened to that peace, my life and way of thinking took another direction. Somehow and unconsciously I knew what I wanted. Like as if it always has been written.

I live in Belgium, a small country. We have some great audience and great venues, but after a while you’ve performed almost everywhere. So our goal now is to export ourselves.
