"Born in south of Sweden, from a rather global family since I nowadays have family in Germany, Atlanta, Eritrea, Denver and Great Britain aswell as in Sweden. Started writing lyrics and poetry when I was 15. I recorded with the label Trisis Records first in the fall of 2006. But we hade our differences, so I couldn't stay with them. Still have love for them though. :) I study culture, love music and food, play capoeira.. Music is my way of reflecting over things in life, good or bad"
