NEW release - MOments EP

- I´m so proud and excited to share this EP with everyone! I chose the title Moments simply because I want to share exactly that with my listeners. I sing about the ups and downs of life, music and of love withered and lost, some of which I´ve experienced myself and also believe many people can relate to.

I hope my music brings my listeners many wonderful, soulwarming moments.
