'For me, an album is more and more like a book; a continuous narrative of mixed-up stories which come together in the music I write, the characters I create - sometimes tormented, other times content - and in the feelings of loss and defeat that a lot of people can relate to. I speak about myself through the voices of others but I substitute myself for them using my own voice. Ever since becoming a musician, I always looked to improve the simplicity of that which truly fascinates me: writing songs. Whatever music I make is just that: my life expressed though lyrics and harmony. If listeners can relate to it too then my job is done, and I can hit the road with the next album in mind.'
