“I’m definitely not a philosopher or good with giving advice to anyone, but since I get asked a lot about the “music career” thing and how to “make it”, I’d like to say this:
I feel uncomfortable every time a journalist in my country asks me “do you think you would have achieved all this, if you hadn’t left Greece”??
First of all – I’m from Thessaloniki and I STILL live there. I love it.
But sometimes I feel that people expect to hear from me the “secret” to success. Guess what – there’s no such thing. There are no shortcuts. If you want something bad enough, you’ll find a way to make it happen. Simple as that.
I don’t know what my life and career would have been like if I hadn’t traveled to America and Sweden back when I was 18. I’m pretty sure I’d still be playing music though!
If you want me to tell you that you need to invest time, money and your personal life, then YES, I confirm that. How much time? All of it. How much money? I don’t know, that’s up to you, I cannot do the logistics for you and I cannot tell you which direction to go. Only YOU can sense that for yourself and decide.
Don’t be afraid to follow your dreams!”
