1- Where did you grow up?

I was born in Östersund, a small town in the middle of Sweden, in 1992.

2- What is one of the first songs you remember liking as a kid?

It must have been a Disney song, probably ’A Whole New World’ from Aladdin. But also ’Mamma Mia’ by ABBA, is it okay to name two?

3- What influenced you to get into music?

It might sound cliché, but I think it was just engraved in my soul, my mum said I began to sing as soon as I had learned to tal, and I remember saying in pre-school I’m gonna be a singer when I grow up”. I must also acknowledge my dad, he is musical himself and has always encouraged the music interest in me. Then of course I’ve been inspired by all the great bands and artists I’ve liked through the years, especially one band - ABBA, still my favourite band today. And just the pure joy of creating something is a driving force in itself, and the singing - there’s nothing better.
