Which artists/bands have had the biggest influence on your music?
I am a bit of an old soul, which is to say I am young but the majority of artists I still love best are, well, not of my generation. That applies to Bach & Chopin, as well as Queen, The Police and Peter Gabriel or U2, Nina Simone or Billy Joel, Annie Lennox, Grace Jones, Stevie Wonder or Miles Davis. And then there are all the wonderful Russian and European artists, too. That is not to say that there are not some more current artists I love, but none of them are in the top 40, I would say. I still love Bjork, too. I am planning a whole series of covers in these coming months of a very wide variety of my favorite artists, who are not currently popular or in the charts. I am excited about this opportunity to demonstrate that once a great song always a great song, regardless of arrangements or when it was released.

I love your music since my Dad brought back your signed CD from TED!!! I really like the songs: Snow in Venice and Armies of your Heart. My question is: When and how did you start producing your own music?
