- What kind of thought or emotion you have is important to convey the music?

- I try not to interfere song unfold. Usually the song itself "knows" what is in her best interest. Strong emotions with their catchy songs. These emotions I try to convey as clearly as possible the texts and what not to say the words, I try to express the music. Grief, love, loss and longing - these are some emotions that are affected by the songs.

- usually appears alone, but you sang along with various artists and groups - as well as Symphony Orchestra. How is the presence of a single scene from the show with other artists?
- Different communication with the audience. When you have a solo performance, communication is more personal and direct. Just hit the stage for another new one, everything changes.

- In my usual acoustic sound, this year brought with electric guitar, which has carried out several works. This will be older and new songs blend. Issue you a secret - I am never intended by the exact appearance of progress.

- I hope that the audience will understand what I want to say to my songs, and I as soon as I'll try to do that for them it would be easy.
