Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this project?

LA Streets is my latest single, a disco-pop song that takes an introspective look into my trip to Los Angeles last year.

Released April 8, 2023. Finding myself in a new city, in a new country, on a new continent, I felt like I had an opportunity like no other so I had to give it my all. LA Streets is about the first few weeks of my time in Los Angeles, and how giving my all, in the end, didn’t matter.

What lessons would you like to impart with your audience?

The biggest lesson I want to impart is to never ever give up.

Despite any and all setbacks, disappointments, and rejections you have (and will) face, you will make it out and find yourself in a much better place if you keep going.

For me, that lesson was very hard to re-learn when I was in LA, it was supposed to be this dream-fulfilling adventure but it ended up being more of a disappointment. Despite that, I keep on going and like I say in LA Streets, I cannot ever stop.

What is your favorite part of this body of work?

My favorite part of LA Streets might be for the first time in all my songs, the lyrics.

I am very proud of the entire song, I wrote and co-produced it myself but there is just something about the text I feel is so very important and personal to me. The lyrics really speak to the undying ambition and drive I possess, which I believe is something that makes me as an artist really shine.

Anything else we should know about it? Future releases? Upcoming events? 

In the future, I’m planning on releasing a few singles that are also tied to LA and this song, but that has not been set in stone. Other than that I am planning on performing a lot this year in Sweden; hopefully, I’ll be able to return to LA to perform there as well, but that has also not been set in stone.
