When did you start making music and what was the contributor factor that made you to do so?
It’s hard to remember exactly but sometime in the early 90’s I started playing guitar and me and some friends tried to write some very basic (and very bad) songs. By 1997-98 it was finally starting to sound like music. Just listening to music and discovering new things made me want to be part of it.
