What moment or story inspired the creation of this song?
I feel, as a songwriter, one of the hardest things to do is to say how you feel. In my songs, I'm not saying something that's never been said before. It's the emotion that is coming from inside. It always hits me unexpectedly in a car or right before I go to bed. There are no tricks. It's honesty with big melodies and captured emotions.
What was it like working with Kolpaque to achieve the desired sound in, “Solo”?
Ivan (Kolpaque) is a genuine talent pure and simple. In fact, he is one of the best I have had the privilege to work with. He's so musically gifted and his intuition and sense of music are very familiar with mine.
So I’d call it musical synergy, that sound, and feeling came out from deep inside of both of us.

Being inspired by Michael Jackson, Prince, James Brown, and Elvis Presley, how do you allow their influence to speak into the music that you create?
Inspiration is like a memory sponge, you keep absorbing every fragment or feeling or moment or story or sound. That subconsciously influences you and moves you. With any type of creation, you create what's inside of you, and everything you observe, experience, and feel during your lifetime will always be your co-creator. Answering your question I would say: in my music you will hear a galaxy called "lifetime".
As an artist, what is your main message that you put forth in the music that you create?
It's just all love. That's what music is. That's why music is created. To make people feel good.
What can we expect to see next from you?
I feel it's my job to continue being a student of music if I want to continue being an artist. You have to keep filling your mind with other music and knowledge and continue feeding that little "scientist" that lives within and to always think and be ahead of the curve.
