LONG STORY SHORT, A SEEKER. AND A FRIEND ALONG YOUR JOURNEY.
TRYING TO BE THE MENTOR HE WISHED HE HAD HAD WHEN HE MOST NEEDED IT.
I'M ALSO THE SCARED LITTLE BOY WHO GREW UP ON 4 COUNTRIES, THREE CONTINENTS FEELING LOST UNTIL MUSIC FOUND ME. I HAVE BATTLED CRIPPLING OBESITY, HEART DISEASE, A EATING DISORDER AND SUICIDAL MENTAL HEALTH AS A TEENAGER.
ONLY TO TRANSITION INTO AN INDEPENDENT, CONFIDENT ADULT WHO LIVES AND WORKS BETWEEN MAJOR GLOBAL CITIES DOING WHAT HE LOVES.
CREATING ART. AND HELPING OTHERS DO THE SAME.
MUSIC SAVED MY LIFE.
BUT I'M NOT HERE TO PLAY 'SAVIOUR'.
I JUST WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT IF YOU ARE STRUGGLING TO TRULY CONNECT TO THE ARTIST YOU ARE MEANT TO BE, I'VE BEEN THERE.
AND I'M HAPPY TO SHARE TOOLS THAT HELPED ME NOT JUST COPE BUT THRIVE. I TRAIN FELLOW ARTISTS OF ALL AGES AND GENDERS TO BUILD FULFILLING AND SUSTAINABLE ARTIST PROFILES AND CAREERS ON THEIR OWN TERMS.
📍FROM WRITING A SONG 📝 TO PLAYING AN INSTRUMENT 🎹 TO UNDERSTANDING MUSIC PROMOTION 📆.
📍AND LEARNING TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF 🧘🏽 WHILE AT IT.
📍WHETHER AT THE STUDIO 🎙, OR ON THE ROAD 🚐.
I GOT YOU.
p.s. I also have 25 years of professional experience as an international performing/recording and educating artist between Europe and Asia.
And a Masters Degree in Music from the London College of Music. And have been nominated for two German Jazz Awards (Bremer Jazzpreis and Future Jazz Sounds) and been jury on competitions.
I ALSO AM A PERFORMING & TOURING ARTIST BASED BETWEEN EUROPE AND ASIA MYSELF AND PODCAST HOST OF CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED SHOW 'TAPASYA LOADING'.
