Music kind of just happened spontaneously a few years back, I found a track on Youtube and I liked a lot – it inspired me and it made me start exploring producing myself. Everything started online with people, or rather nicknames, from around the world helping each other out. Now music is a big part of my life and what I want to pursue. I even started loving the piano! My mom has always played the piano but it never really felt as my thing however I am enjoying it now – playing what I feel like and exploring new things.
